Debian Buster: dpkg-reconfigure not found

Post by ^rooker »

On a fresh install of Debian 10 (Buster), I switched to root using "su" - but strangely, I couldn't execute "dpkg-reconfigure".
I then saw that all commands in /sbin/ couldn't be "found".

Plain "su" doesn't provide the root-specific PATH variables... :oops:

Use "su -" instead of just "su". That's generally the better way:

Code: Select all

$ su -
