      Description

      On Debian stretch I had Jenkins configured to be run under Tomcat 8 server, hence in /etc/default/jenkins I have specified that:

      RUN_STANDALONE=false
      

      During package update (e.g. via apt-get update) the following error happened:

      Setting up jenkins (2.138.2) ...
      Job for jenkins.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
      See "systemctl status jenkins.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
      invoke-rc.d: initscript jenkins, action "start" failed.
      ● jenkins.service - LSB: Start Jenkins at boot time
         Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/jenkins; generated; vendor preset: enabled)

      dpkg: error processing package jenkins (--configure):
       subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
      Errors were encountered while processing:
       jenkins
      E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
      

      It looks that post-installation script tries to restart Jenkins service and/or check it's status but failed, as it was configured as embedded application.

      Expected that Jenkins update is possible despite of jenkins.service status or, in case restart is necessary, it checks that RUN_STANDALONE=true beforehand. Namely when RUN_STANDALONE=false, no restart should be performed as otherwise it fails:
