The morning after upgrading to 6.8 I received the following mail message from my Nethserver installation alerting me about a backup-error:
===== Report for data backup =====

Duplicity 0.6 series is being deprecated:
Reading globbing filelist /tmp/wYCdgtJQN2
Another instance is already running with this archive directory
If you are sure that this is the only instance running you may delete
the following lockfile and run the command again :
Strange, but appararently a lock-file issue so it should not really be a problem.
Strange enough I am able to login to console and webui as admin, but I am unable to use sudo or to su root.
sudo command results in the following:
[admin@fqdn ~]$ sudo command
[sudo] password for admin:
Sorry, user admin is not allowed to execute ‘/bin/command’ as root on fqdn.
admin no longer appear to be in the sudoers file. I can’t check because I need root access to do so . . . .
su root results in the following:
[admin@fqdn ~]$ su root
su: incorrect password
The admin and root passwords seem not to be synced/the same anymore.
Any ideas how to proceed now?
