SABnzbd won't start after upgrade

I am on 11.2-U8 and just upgraded SAB to the latest, I think it's 3.0 or so. It's been working fine until now. I am unable to see it in a webpage at the web address it has been working on, though FreeNAS reports it as being up and running. I have also noted it will not start from the Jail Shell, so something got hosed during the process.

Code:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/sabnzbd: WARNING: failed to start sabnzbd


The jail was first created as 11.3-release-p6 quite some time ago. It is not a plugin, but a jail. I have of course stopped, restarted and ultimately restarted the FreeNAS box.

I have been researching this and seems there may be a compatibility issue with Python. Could this be the issue?


As of version 3, SABnzbd only supports Python 3.5 or higher. Python 2 is no longer supported.
For more info see: Python 3 - SABnzbd 3.0.0

If you console into the jail and do pkg upgrade (you need to agree to ignore the bad OS version and agree to upgrade pkg itself too), do you see the installation of python 3.x proposed?

No, it doesn't list the python version at all, just says they are all up to date.

What install guide did you use to stand it up?

I followed something like this one (although I will fairly say that it was not this one... I can't find the one I used):

OK, I found it, it's under the unsupported spoiler list:

When I came to update it yesterday, it just proposed installing Python3 as part of the pkg upgrade.

Your best bet may be to install a fresh jail.
