Ubuntu: initramfs-tools irqbalance apt-get upgrade error



Question:

I am getting an error when I do sudo apt-get upgrade. I did a do-release-upgrade and went into a lot of issues. Finally the problem has been reduced to:

sudo apt-get upgrade  Reading package lists... Done  Building dependency tree         Reading state information... Done  Calculating upgrade... Done  0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.  2 not fully installed or removed.  After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.  Do you want to continue?

Solution:1

The apt-get stopped, because of:

Errors were encountered while processing:

  • irqbalance

  • initramfs-tools

Further up, you can read:

Setting up irqbalance (1.0.6-2ubuntu0.14.04.1) ...

start: Job failed to start

invoke-rc.d: initscript irqbalance, action "start" failed.

Therefore try either starting or stopping (if it's already started) irqbalance manually before starting the update.

If won't help, try re-installing it: sudo apt-get install --reinstall irqbalance.
