Hi all, after the last update I did in, I believe November, my infrared remote control stopped working for OSMC on my raspberry pi.
Checking the status through putty with
systemctl status lircd.service returns
Unit lircd.service could not be found.
When trying to reinstall LIRC i get following error:

Any idea what’s going on and how i can fix it ?
