Hoping someone can help me. I am a hobyist with Linux at it has served me well over the time I have used it, however, I have just had 4x HDD’s fail this month and I lost all my media, including the backups (6TB of media gone) Anyhow, I am in the frustrating and sad process of setting everything again and the one thing I did manage to save was my Sonarr backup. I thought restoring that would make it easier than setting it all up again.
I have installed Sonarr on Ubuntu 21.04 and it worked, until I tried to restore the files in the zip file of my Sonarr backup. The article I read was to delete the config.xml & nzbdrone.db* files, including the .db-wal/.db-journal files if they existed and restore the backup files to the same location. Restart Sonarr and it should work. Unfortunately it didnt. I didnt modify the install paths (all a default setup with Linux) however localhost:8989 fails to load. Not sure why!
I thought I would try to remove the Sonarr install and install it again. I disabled sonarr.service, removed /etc/systemd/system/sonarr.service and lastly rm -rf /opt/NzbDrone/
Now unfortunately I cannot install Sonarr again. The error I get when I run sudo apt install nzbdrone is:
sudo apt install nzbdrone
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree… Done
Reading state information… Done
nzbdrone is already the newest version (188.8.131.5244).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
From here I cannot run the mono --debug /opt/NzbDrone/NzbDrone.exe as i get the following error:
Cannot open assembly ‘/opt/NzbDrone/NzbDrone.exe’: No such file or directory.
I appreciate the error indicates the cause of the problem being /opt/NzbDrone/NzbDrone.exe’: No such file or directory, but my question is, how can I get Sonarr to install again so that I can run the mono command successfully?
Any help would be gratefully appreciated!
