On my Raspberry Pi runs jessie. After installing mosquitto I can not run sudo reboot anymore. This error appears: "Failed to talk to init daemon.". What could be the problem? I have already uninstalled Mosquitto. Many Thanks!

pi@fhem:~ $ sudo reboot

Failed to talk to init daemon.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.



sudo reboot -f

-f, --force Force immediate halt, power-off, reboot. Do not contact the init system.


sudo shutdown -r now

    Thanks that works. How can I get sudo reboot running without -f again? What happened? – Traum Dec 22 '17 at 17:25
