(I know it's a old thread, but is just to document the issue)

The error seems is in this line here:
Code: [Select]
Nov 28 07:55:53 server systemd[1]: Can't open PID file /var/run/pure-ftpd.pid (yet?) after start: Too many levels of symbolic links

It is claiming about "Too many levels of symbolic links" of the PID file.

You tried to run "journalctl -xe" almost 24 minutes after, too late to show logs.

Seems you tried to reinstalled the pure-ftpd server.
Check the permissions of the file '/var/run/pure-ftpd.pid' and the directory.
Removing this file and restarting pure-ftpd server may solve the issue.

If don't, would be good to post here the conf file "/etc/pure-ftpd/pure-ftpd.conf".

Regards,
Netino

systemctl enable pure-ftp
systemctl start pure-ftp

As for the spinning wheel
Edit packages, make sure all values are set.  Cgroup can be like 1000.  If that doesn't work, I posted a workaround recently.
