[SOLVED] Can't install samba

Hello everyone.

I had installed osmc on my RPi2. I also had installed samba and transmission
1TB disk was connected via usb.So I was able to see shares from any device(android,osx,ios,windows) in my network.
Everything worked fine until I did last update.
Since that moment I don’t have access to shares.
I did clean re-install osmc using images 2016.04.1 and 2016.02.3. Installation is ok.
But I can’t install samba.

After command: osmc@osmc:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart

I receive below output:

[…] Restarting nmbd (via systemctl): nmbd.serviceJob for nmbd.service failed. See ‘systemctl status nmbd.service’ and ‘journalctl -xn’ for details.
[FAIL failed!
osmc@osmc:~$
osmc@osmc:~$ systemctl status nmbd.service

    osmc@osmc:~$ journalctl -xn

Can you help me?Never had that kind of issue.

Before you ask , I tried installing samba from app-store , situation was same.

Thank you for your future help

sudo journalctl -xn

How did you install Samba? Via the App Store?

Did you install Samba manually before installing the App Store version? Did you purge the old version fully?

no Sam , I did full wipe of sd card and fresh install

@sam_nazarko , please see below some update:
(fresh wipe microsd , fresh image download 2016.04-1) after that, install sudo samba etc , the result is same:

osmc@osmc:~$ sudo journalctl -xn
