By "HPC" systems, do you mean a server?  Or a supercomputer??

As far as I know, no, it wouldn't be more cooperative.  Both have
similar packages, of course.  But Debian is updated less than Ubuntu
(assuming you're not using the LTS versions).  If you're ok with that,
then you can give Debian a try.  Especially if you're doing this on a
server that has to go into production use and won't be updated very

As for the munge steps, after doing them, did you restart your system?
 Is there a munge process running after your server comes back?

By the way, I was skimming over your old messages and I think
something has changed.  Or perhaps I've lost some context...

You first said you were installing slurm 15.08.7 locally on an Ubuntu
16.04 machine.  But you then copy and pasted some text that indicated
slurm 17.02.9 was started.  Can you clarify what version of slurm and
Ubuntu you're using?  I think 17.02.9 is source since even 17.10 is
"just" on 17.02.6.
