I've installed vsftpd on my local system. When trying to connect to it using filezilla I get following error:

Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response:   500 OOPS: priv_sock_get_cmd
Error:  Critical error
Error:  Could not connect to server

There is a post here that describes the problem. The new kernel module seccomp is used automatically by vsftpd since version 3.0.0. vsftpd is a bit buggy when using seccomp.

Add this line to the end of /etc/vsftpd.conf


and restart the Server:

sudo service vsftpd restart
