Description Fabio Valentini 2021-11-04 17:07:04 UTC
Description of problem:

When upgrading the syncthing package (where user services should be restarted after package updates, hence the use of %systemd_user_postun_with_restart), there's a scriptlet error that originates here:

/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-update-helper at line 54

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install syncthing (e.g. v1.18.3 from fedora 35 stable repo)
2. enable and start syncthing user session service for some user
2. upgrade syncthing (e.g. to v1.18.4 from fedora 35 koji / updates-testing)
3. observe scriptlet error and not-restarted user units that should have been restarted

Actual results:
User units don't get restarted after the package upgrade.

Expected results:
User units get successfully restarted after package upgrade.
