Failed to start iptables.service: Unit iptables.service not found


Jan 19, 2023
Was working last week, I updated to 8.0.3 and I swear it was working after, but this is the error I get. Not sure how to remedy it :(
Gah! I just did as you suggested, same error. I wonder if something got wacky when I went from 7 to 8.0.3. My only main concern would be my Opnsense firewall (which I have backsups for) and then my VM's which I do not know how to backup/export, but will look into.
No one else?
I have done everything outside of format and reinstall which I can, but really do not want to do.
