When I left the office yesterday I was using ES (5.5.2) with no problem on my Ubuntu 16.10 VM as I have been for the last couple of months. This morning I start up the VM and try to access the cluster and get an exception that the socket connection was refused.
When checking the
status I get the following:
Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused
I know ubuntu uses
systemd but it has been working fine up until now.
There was an update from the Elasticsearch repo yesterday and I am not certain if I restarted the machine at any point after that. There was no update installed this morning.
I have tried stopping and restarting the service, as well as reloading the daemon.
Before I do a fresh install I thought I'd ask here.
