Hi Folks

I would just like to start a big THANK YOU to all the VSIDO team

right I haven't been on for a long time so I hope I am in the right place for this

I have just upgraded to 4.19.0-1 and while doing the general upgrade I got this error message

Code: [Select]

config error line 833 of /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated.tmp
option "hosts_try_dane
sub error /usr/bin/dpkg error (1)

it doesn't seem to have stopped anything working

Cheers :D

That's a mail delivery error (not your email, the system mail).

Did you use to have a host named "dane" on your network?

If you do a search of "config error line 833 of /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated.tmp" you'll get some answers that usually get around to reconfiguring - this command may work for you:

Code: [Select]
dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config
from this bug report

Search that error some more for something more current/definitive.

Appears to be harmless; some users couldn't recreate the error so it may be gone next time you reboot & upgrade.
