Message 1 is the cause of message 2

Warning it can be ignored if it is an self generated ssl ignore the massage. If it is an LE certificate request a new one after done with next error

nginx: [emerg] bind() to xx.xx.xx.xx:80 failed (99: Cannot assign requested address)

There al ready a service running on this port or you have a dynamic ip and the server tries to bind to this ip.

For a fix

Message 3:
Try again to run apt upgrade && apt upgrade

No need to restore the server

Background: Because I update the systems manually, the “source.list” is deactivated.

If the Hestia installation requires additional packages, the attempt will fail.

Solution 1: activate “Source.list”.
Solution 2: also switch off the automatic update of Hestia.

Best regards


Updates always require new packages… As that is the way how distribute them …
