Failed to open initctl fifo

coming back from my holidays my NextCloud on my raspberry pi3 is not running anymore.
Access by ssh worked. After rebooting i got the messages below:

Failed to open initctl fifo: No such device or address
Failed to talk to init daemon.

trying to access my account through my browser:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator if this error reappears multiple times, please include the technical details below in your report.
More details can be found in the server log.

I’m not expert enough to know how to access the log-file nor the information below, but my instance is setup to be automatically kept up to date.

I would highy appreciate any ideas on how solve the initctl issue.
Thanks a lot in advance

Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5): replace me
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): replace me
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): replace me
PHP version (eg, 7.4): replace me

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:


The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):


The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in /var/log/____:


Output errors in nextcloud.log in /var/www/ or as admin user in top right menu, filtering for errors. Use a pastebin service if necessary.


I searched the internet. Maybe you can test:

systemctl --force reboot
systemctl --force --force reboot

Hopefully no problem with your hardware e.g. disk.

If it not works, execute
after boot and post details.

Hi devnull
Thanks for your research and hint.
Unfortunately it did not help (acutally: the system does not reboot anymore…)
Look’s like i have to setup Raspberry Pi NC from scratch.
Thanks anyway
