As the title implies, I am getting this error whenever I am trying to run
newaliases. First, a bit of explanation. I was trying to do an upgrade on my debian server from jessie to stretch, and I almost got all packages upgraded, minus
postfix-mysql. Also, in the upgrade mysql was replaced with mariadb. I'm not sure if this is problematic, but whenever I try to re-run the upgrade to re-configure postfix packages, I get the following:
Setting up postfix (3.1.4-7) ... Postfix (main.cf) configuration was not changed. If you need to make changes, edit /etc/postfix/main.cf (and others) as needed. To view Postfix configuration values, see postconf(1). After modifying main.cf, be sure to run 'service postfix reload'. Running newaliases postalias: fatal: unsupported dictionary type: mysql does not support bulk-mode creation. dpkg: error processing package postfix (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of postfix-mysql: postfix-mysql depends on postfix (= 3.1.4-7); however: Package postfix is not configured yet. dpkg: error processing package postfix-mysql (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
I'm not sure what's causing the issue and I'm not able to reboot until the packages are resolved due to other unrelated reasons on the system currently.
