Setting up qmail (1.06-4) ...
The hostname -f command returned: $1

Your system needs to have a fully qualified domain name (fqdn) in
order to install the var-qmail packages.

Installation aborted.

dpkg: error processing qmail (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of qmail-run:
qmail-run depends on qmail (>= 1.06-2.1); however:
Package qmail is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing qmail-run (--configure):

No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure.
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
