Starting pure-ftpd: 421 Unable to switch capabilities: Operation not permitted [FAILED]

At first I thought there was a wrong setting in pure-ftpd, I even copied the configuration of the CWP that was established but it was still an error. Finally I explored via Google and found a little enlightenment. The initial diagnosis is because the installed pure-FTPD is not compatible with the host kernel. Please note that my host uses proxmox version 4.2.7. The guest uses LXC.

So troubleshooting pure-FTPD error 421 is twofold:

Re-compile pure-ftpd, by adding -without capabilities. But in my opinion this is not practical because not necessarily our manual settings match the default CWP
With proxmox update. Now I choose this second method and succeed. The method is very easy
Edit sources list:

vi /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list

deb jessie pve-enterprise

Love comment to be inactive, then add

deb jessie pve-no-subscription

(because we use the free version)

Clean the repo first with:

apt-get clean all

Next upgrade the OS

apt-get update & apt-get upgrade & apt-get dist-upgrade -y

When it’s finished, then restart
