Did you have selected postix as your system MTA? The service settings is refreshed during upgrade according to your alternatives settings, i.e. check by:

# alternatives --display mta
mta - status is manual.
 link currently points to /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix

You need to have 'postfix' there as above, if not, update your settings by:

# alternatives --config mta

And select postfix as your system MTA.
Comment 2 dev002 2012-07-30 07:09:42 EDT
Well, seems that sendmail was selected. But, OFF on init, not running during update. Postfix ON and running while update. No warning about this.

Why mta is running if is not preferred?
