direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Yes, I tried and apt-get update went well.

Unfortunately when upgraded to drbd components from the new linbit
repository on a node without running vm something started going wrong,
main issue being new drbdmanage from python-drbdmanage not working; even
a simple

drbdmanage list-nodes

resulted in a wait forever, without any info in syslog.

Nevertheless, low level drbdsetup commands had shown a not so bad
situation, with .drbdctrl and almost all other volumes replicating

I tried to look the state of drbdmanage.service but I noted that it is
now masked (By the way, is there any info on that?).

I reverted to old components and now all is going well.

I must say that that switch to linbit repo upgrade coincided with 4.3 -
4.4 pve upgrade on that node, something I was aware only after doing it.
May be I can repeat the repo switch in a more stable situation.
