We are currently running a Fedora 28 server. Due to the server being restarting multiple times, FirewallD has stopped working. Based on the error messages presented when we run the command systemctl status firewalld, it appears as though the ABRT daemon has failed.

How am I able to resolve this problem?

[root@ashishnkbaba ~]# systemctl status firewalld

  • Please update to a supported release. Fedora 28 is past end of life. – Michael Hampton Aug 8 '20 at 17:32
  • is there any alternative as i knew life is already expired @MichaelHampton – Ashish Prajapati Aug 8 '20 at 17:39
  • As @MichaelHampton advised, you need to upgrade to a supported release. Server Fault is for questions about managing information technology systems in a business environment. Unless the system is completely offline it poses a security risk, and as such isn't supported here. You will need to research ways to upgrade the system. – Christopher H Aug 17 '20 at 5:55
  • thanks for your prompt response @ChristopherH i've added to the lastest one and issue got rectified. – Ashish Prajapati Aug 18 '20 at 19:17

Your server is running an outdated and unsupported version. Please update the OS version, which will resolve it.
