You need to include the actual error.

@impala:~# apt reinstall procmail.wrapper

E: Unable to locate package procmail.wrapper
E: Couldnā€™t find any package by glob ā€˜procmail.wrapperā€™

missing repository?
the file does exist in /usr/bin with permissions, but we moved it there.

Sorry. Here it is:

Command died with status 127:
ā€œ/usr/bin/procmail-wrapper -o -a $DOMAIN -d $LOGNAMEā€. Command output: sh:
1: /usr/bin/procmail-wrapper: not found


procmail.wrapper is not a package.

The package we provide is called procmail-wrapper.

It should have been installed when you installed Virtualmin, assuming this is a supported OS and architecture.

It is. Ubuntu 20.04 64bit. It was installed but appeared in another directory, so we moved it after getting the mail errors, adjusted the permissions but the system still says itā€™s not found, and the mail system canā€™t find it.
install and reinstalls say the package procmail.wrapper cannot be found. I was wondering if I could be missing a repository in my apt list.

Oh, I see what you are saying. a . or -. good grief, let me check thatā€¦

No. we were installing procmail-wrapper:

Reading package listsā€¦ Done

E: Unable to locate package procmail-wrapper

I donā€™t see the virtualmin repositories in the sources list

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security main restricted
# deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security main restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security universe
# deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security universe
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security multiverse
# deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security multiverse
# deb http://5xxxxxxx@software.virtualmin.com/vm/6/apt virtualmin-universal main
# deb http://5xxxxxxx@software.virtualmin.com/vm/6/apt virtualmin-xenial main

Wondering if I should uncomment the vm/6 lines for focalā€¦

the last 2 lines are commented out currently

A dist-upgrade disables non-core repos.

You also need to change the xenial repo to focal, obviously.

Getting closer. Getting this: Credentials for software.virtualmin.com match, but the protocol is not encrypted. Annotate with http:// to use.

I see the message is really asking for https:// That seemed to fix it anyway. Will test the mail now.

That was the money. All fixed now. Thanks for the hints.
