    Anyone else had this error and somehow managed to get it fixed?
    Thank you.

    Later edit.
    Removing Suricata 3.0_7 and installing it again ( latest version 3.0_8 ) seems to work well.
    No more errors.

    Off topic: for some reason " 8 ) " without a space is interpreted as a smiley by the forum software. Like 8)



  • I can confirm that exact this issue still exists. Happened during update to 3.1.2_2

    Suricata was disabled (not in menu) but still in package manger under "installed packages".  So only uninstall and new install worked!!
