To get a list of all the files installed by a package, you can use dpkg -L <package_name> In your case dpkg -L nginx-light will list all the files installed by the package.

The package lists apt-get is using are out of date; you need to run apt-get update before installing your packages. The connection errors to ftp.fr.debian.org are strange, that site is accessible for me...

The upstream developers wouldn't have released their software if they didn't think those were stable. It's not because it works perfectly on developper computer / tests cases... that it will work on all other cases. Finding bugs on software is slow and the more testers you have, the more bugs you will find. What are the criterion for software to ...

The proper approach would be to install a couple of SATA drives using drive caddies, then install the OS using mirroring. VMs and camera images tend to be time consuming to re-create so you don't want a dead hard drive killing your entire environment.

For anyone having the same issue, I used the PV Create command with the UUID set with the old UUID. LVM does not require a partition map so it was still able to see the data. I have to dig a little to figure out which UUID belonged to which drive. in the end I just guessed. If only one drive is missing you obviously use the missing UUID. If you guess, ...

I had the same issue. The debian maintainers added a patch to mdadm which causes the raid assembly to start before the devices are up. I have not yet completely found out why as it's supposed to fix broken RAIDs as root file system. But you can fix it for now by downgrading the mdadm package. Get the older version from here: ...

grep -- abc * As steeldriver1 mentionned, on my system there is indeed a file called -.slice in that directory. This leads to some unexpected behavior since linux treats such symbols as commands. For example mv - * tab * doesn't auto complete the filename but mv -- '- * tab * does. I figured it out by reading this page which explains it nicely. ...

I have now gotten it to work. The problem was very low antenna gain. By moving it away from nearby metal objects and holding it sideways, up-side down, etc. it was possible to make it associate and work normally. A very physical solution to a technical problem. I guess anything below -80 dB should be suspect.
