IMHO the `systemctl try-restart' on a socket isn't that what should be done.
Therefore a


in the `[Install]' section of the "lvm2-lvmetad.service" should be
sufficient to be ablle to remove"lvm2-lvmetad.service" from the
%service_add_* macro lines in the spec file.

Thank you for providing that.

As my test now these two ways can avoid service from starting after updating
1. remove .socket from %service_delete_* macro in %preun and %postun.
But I don't think it is good that update a package without socket unit being

2. add ALSO option to Install section as Werner suggested and remove
But seems that it only works in case that the old package as well including an
ALSO option. The service will be running if only the new package including ALSO
option but the old package not including an ALSO option.
Is it expected?
