Here is what I have done.
Ubuntu 15.10 running Splunk Enterprise 6.3.2 fine.
Download splunk-6.3.3-f44afce176d0-linux-2.6-amd64.deb to the server.
dpkg -i splunk-6.3.3-f44afce176d0-linux-2.6-amd64.deb (Reading database ... 140697 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack splunk-6.3.3-f44afce176d0-linux-2.6-amd64.deb ... This looks like an upgrade of an existing Splunk Server. Attempting to stop the installed Splunk Server... Stopping splunkd... Shutting down. Please wait, as this may take a few minutes. .. Stopping splunk helpers... Done. Unpacking splunk (6.3.3) over (6.3.2) ... Setting up splunk (6.3.3) ... complete
Web not responding, so I tried to start the service manually:
service splunk restart Job for splunk.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status splunk.serv ice" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
Then look at error gives this:
systemctl status splunk.service â splunk.service - LSB: Start splunk Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/splunk) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2016-02-05 09:13:50 CET; 9s ago Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8) Process: 19007 ExecStop=/etc/init.d/splunk stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Process: 19036 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/splunk start (code=exited, status=2) Feb 05 09:13:50 Varg systemd: Starting LSB: Start splunk...

Anyone have an idea on how to fix Failed to start LSB: Start splunk.?
Fond that I do need to run ./splunk start from the bin folder.
All is ok now...
