Description Maciej S. Szmigiero 2020-04-28 00:41:39 UTC
net-dns/getdns stubby init script redirects its (stubby) runtime output to /var/log/stubby.log using the shell ">>" operator.

However, a shell does not know that it has to reopen this file after it gets rotated by logrotate, resulting in stubby still outputting to a now-deleted old log file, effectively stopping the logging.

Please add "copytruncate" to stubby logrotate config so logrotate will truncate this log file instead of removing it, fixing this issue.
