We have been using New Relic to monitor a ton of our servers running different Operating Systems. But while installing NR agent on Ubutnu 16.4, I ran into this error.
initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused
dpkg: error processing package newrelic-infra (–configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I did see one other support question on the same topic, but the answers were definitely not clear there as the topic strayed towards Docker containers. I can confirm that the newrelic-infra.list has just
“deb [arch=amd64] https://download.newrelic.com/infrastructure_agent/linux/apt xenial main”
What could potentially be the issue? Any help here is appreciated, thank you!
