OSMC Update Error proftpd-core

I did an OSMC update on my Vero4k+ and it failed with the following message:

OSMC Update Error

Error installing proftpd-core
please report this to the OSMC forum.

indeed, I can no longer connect to via ftp getting the message:

Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server"

I have uploaded the logs to:


Please advise on how to correct.

Thanks for the support.


Your logs show that the package has not been upgraded successfully.

It’s not a package that we officially, so we can’t directly support this, however…

Your logs show:

unknown configuration directive 'IdentLookups' on line 13 of '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'

I’d suggest removing this line and then running:

sudo apt-get -f install


Thanks, Sam. That worked!

Glad to hear this.
