I have an Ubuntu 16 Server at my home, everything running smoothly even installed webmin to ease my work with some configurations but now I want to install a timemachine server on it and seems that I'm stuck on restarting the netatalk service.
It gives me the following error
Failed to start netatalk.service: Unit netatalk.service is masked.
The first thing I've tried was uninstall the netatalk package a reinstall it, then I tried disable the service and refresh the daemon it didn't work either.
The tutorial that I followed is this one
I want to avoid reseting my system and I no longer can figure out what to do.
Don't know if this helps, but here's the status output
pedro@HITMAN-SERVER:~$ sudo service netatalk status
Loaded: masked (/dev/null; bad)
Active: inactive (dead)
Thanks in advance
After the George's help and a bit more of search I was able to properly run netatalk.
The correct steps that I took to fix the problem are the following
As George said
sudo systemctl unmask netatalk
This will unmasked the /dev/null of the service.
Then I just followed the installation guide bellow instead of using the apt-get command
hope this helps other people with similar problems
