Hi lovely people,

I'm unable to run nagios on a server, I've tried to enable debugging to -1 in nagios.cfg but this is all it shows


Apr 28 15:10:56 spnagios systemd[1]: Starting LSB: Starts and stops the Nagios monitoring server...

it does seem to work when i disable updates in nagios.cfg file

If I downgrade to the previous version it works fine.

Anyone else with the same problem?

Yes - We just tried to perform the update from 4.4.6 -> 4.4.7, after updating, the Nagios instance would start and Daemon would be SIGSEV Termed immediately after starting worker processes like yours.

We are running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, and 4.4.6 has worked for months without issues.

We took your advice and edited the nagios.cfg and disabled check_for_updates and the service is now A-OK, other than red banner about not being warned about future updates. Well, this is the latest update since 2020 so not really concerned, but we check monthly anyways during our checks.

Thanks for posting, I'm running Rocky Linux 8.5 (Green Obsidian)

When you disable updates directive in nagios config it works for you too?

I did not test with "check_for_updates=0".

Thanks for reporting this kylejb007

Just for info - same issue using SLES15 SP3 - updated a couple of weeks ago and had to revert to 4.4.6 (before seeing workaround).

Will probably wait until fixed, keeping half an eye on - https://github-com.translate.goog/Nagio ... _tr_pto=sc
