Thank you for taking the time to report bugs and help make Ubuntu better. This bug has been fixed in the current Ubuntu development release, which is why I'm marking it "Fix Relased" (the bug status follows what's in the development release).
There is a correct and simple to apply workaround to /etc/default/nis and that is to remove the now invalid option "-no-dbus". If you would like to see this fixed, please follow the SRU procedure detailed in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates#Procedure. The updated package would have a fixed default config file, and *maybe* try to fix the existing config file if it encounters the bad option, perhaps using sed. ** Changed in: nis (Ubuntu) Status: Confirmed => Fix Released ** Tags removed: server-next -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Server, which is subscribed to nis in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1799335 Title: in place upgrade from 18.04 to 18.10 breaks NIS To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nis/+bug/1799335/+subscriptions -- Ubuntu-server-bugs mailing list Ubuntuemail@example.com Modify settings or unsubscribe at: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-server-bugs
