Dear Andrew

SRV13 was one of DC's. Today it no longer exists.
In my case, is it possible to solve this problem?

If I return the VM snapshot in the previous version of Samba (4.4.5), and try to fix the problem by running the command, is it the best solution?

In this case you have an old time.pyc or time.py file in your install. 
Clean our the old binaries and python files from your install and re-
run make install.

It won't help however, as the links you show are both not deleted and
point to an object that doesn't exist.  We now find these (we didn't in
4.4) but we don't propose a solution, as it isn't clear (enough) what
to do with them!  

My guess is that you have removed or re-built SVR13 in the past?  Is
that the case?
