Wonderful! Thank you for reply.

From now I will clean-install zimbra, and May I ask a question?

On the occasion of new clean installation, how do I exclude Zimbra Repo?

@funifuni The new installation packages from Zextras are cumulative. I don't do a (fully) clean install but upgrade via a new Zextras-package.

exclude - /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ 2 files with Zimbra.xxxx -- add # to the start of a line.

I appreciate your advise.

I will try it.

New Installation of zimbra have its own new repository---that should be just excluded,

and automatically apply new repos. Uuhm...I am screwed.

How can I avoid such? On the midway of installation, I wish I could edit repos...

 

I regret that I haven't taken backup image of P23 including whole OS image.

@funifuni If you exclude Zimbra repos then it wil work. New updates/upgrade will be available via Zextras installation package. No need to update via Zimbra repos. 

Zimbra repos are 4 entries. I excluded them all. 8815 and 90 versions.

(this is my view on the situation. I updated P25 via repos and had a backup incl OS) 🙂

@Md. Shariful Islam

Thank you so much.  I was able to get it figured out.  Now I have a new problem.  There were some Ubuntu updates installed that absolute break Zimbra.  I had to roll back a snapshot.

I am on Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS with Zimbra 9.0.0_ZEXTRAS_20220402 (build 20220419075932)

These are the updates that were out there.  

 

 
 
 
They all install except for zimbra-core and zimbra-ldap.  However once installed mailbox, webapp and several other services refuse to start.  These packages say 8.8.  Is that the problem?

 

 

 

 

So with the packages above being presented, does that mean I am getting he wrong repository?  If I install the packages above for Ubuntu it breaks Zimbra.

@jreiter1975 My advice is to stop updating via repos if you have an Zextras install. New Zextras build should be provided to apply updates/upgrades. So version 220402 is the current version.

In short, Zimbra update via

apt update && upgrade---------No good.

Using latest package-----good.

Is it O.K.?

 

The issue is that...How about new installasion?

Of course, New installation requires latest package so that I'll be able to install to the end. perhaps...

but, several days ago, could not install to the end. I expect that the situation have changed.

Either way, I will try it.

Thank you very much, Mr Martin!

Thank you.  That is what I figured the issue was.  Any idea what repository they would be coming from?  Looking at /etc/apt/sources.list and I don't see anything for Zimbra.  Just Ubuntu and Webmin repositories.

31 May ... First Official Carbonio CE

7 June ... Patch24 of ZCS9(by Zextras) and first corresponding to Ubuntu20/RHEL8

From around this time, say clearly, something is wrong.

 

31 May, I tried CarbonioCE immediately, but failed to start LSB(carbonio.service not start), I must manually start(services.systemctl start carbonio).

7 June, I tried Patch24 of zcs9, LSB issue seems to remain like carbonioCE.

and 15 June or around, after apt update, zmmailboxd not running and become to be unable to access Web Page suddenly.

Aroud this time or so, Repository's inconsistency must occuerd.

@martinwiertz  I suspect that your system has some packages already downloaded in the cache (/var/cache/apt ) because froma new system install it is currently impossible to me to proceed with a complete install even without using repos.

I tried new installation on Ubuntu20 but in vain.

Installation itself was run to the end surprisingly. But LSB issue and zmmailboxd issue are still remained.

I edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/zimbra.list as @jreiter1975 and @martin says and re-install(upgrade) via package, not using zimbra repository.

It displayed below.

 

ERROR: Unable to install required packages

WARNING: REMOTE PACKAGE INSTALLATION FAILED.

To proceed, review the instructions at:

https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Recovering_from_upgrade_failure

Failure to follow the instructions on the wiki will result in complete data loss

 

I was tired. I hope that zextras would release normal packages as soon as possible.

@jreiter1975 I am currently on the road and don't have remote access to my system. I will post the repo URL when I am back. 

I haven't tried or needed a new install of Zimbra/Zextras. Therefore don't know if apt-get differs from the Zimbra repository during install.sh procedure. It think there is no difference though. (not an expert)

I see currently several people who can't succesfully install a new system. Downloading Zextras package and use repositiry should work based on Zimbra and Zextras. After the installation procedure and having a running system you should not use Zimbra-repos on apt-get. 

Has anyone succesfully installed Zextras-Zimbra via their package + using repos during installation procedure?

In my experience and tests, that causes many problems and a server that's not possible to start correctly.

@phoenix Confirm.

Today installed a clean virtual Ubuntu server 18.04. All patches present.

Installed latest Zextras - Latest Version: 9.0.0p24 -- May 23

wget download.zextras.com/zcs-9.0.0_OSE_UBUNTU18_latest-zextras.tgz

Installed Zimbra and used repos Y. Mailbox and webapp services didn't start.

Upgrading my production server to the latest image (May 23) is a bad idea.
