and you will be fine. I cannot see any other mistake or warning.

As for rsync yes, the newer version replaced the config files in
/etc/init.d/

if you had custom rsync config files , then maybe needs to re-create them.

Thanks

The issue is that only.I was not aware of the existing installation of Rsync. Also the the task that were configured under that.
Is there any way to fix that thing.I would be thankful to you.
I committed this mistake as I was having focus on only one thing and that was like if I install rsync i can set up a service to migrate my backup's from current machine on weekly basis to my back up server.
