Since dovecot version the IMAP services cannot start because of a mismatch in imap-login service. The following error message is available in systemd:

imap-login: Fatal: Dovecot version mismatch: Master is v2.3.5.1, imap-login is v2.3.5.2 (if you don't care, set version_ignore=yes)
master: Error: service(imap-login): command startup failed, throttling for 60 secs

Additional info:
* package version(s):
* config and/or log files etc: AFAIK no specific configuration dovecot users are mapped to PAM, but it doesn't seems the problem comes from configuration
* link to upstream bug report, if any: none

Steps to reproduce:

- Install dovecot
- Start it
- Check journal
This task depends upon

I think I restarted both the server and the service after the upgrade. I will double check.

It is now working fine. Sorry for the noise.
