  Hi Paul,

  This tells us that something went wrong in making the new livedir or
migrating the old one to the new one. It is weird that your old
livedir is gone: the migration is atomic, so if the symlink fails to
update, the old livedir should not be deleted. It is possible that you
have uncovered a bug in s6-rc-update.

  Can you strace -v -s256 your invocation of s6-rc-update, pastebin the
result, and give us a link? This will show exactly what is failing.
