Warning: smbclient will be installed before its cifs-utils dependency

Hi, need some advice from the more skilled/experienced gurus here. I got the following warning when updating today and I have not found any conclusive ideas after some googling/search on this forum.

Is it safe to go ahead and update? I haven’t dared to go ahead yet :slight_smile:

Yes, this is normal. I would go ahead and proceed with the update.


Thanks @dalto, upgrade was successful.
