[Samba] WinbinD no longer available in Samba 4.7.6

Using Samba 4.7.6 (from standard repository) on Ubuntu 18.04.

After recent update, winbind failed to update, until I disabled it (it 
didn't start anyway). When run as

# winbindd -d 9 -i

it prints in the end:

server role = 'active directory domain controller' not compatible with 
running the winbindd binary.
You should start 'samba' instead, and it will control starting the 
internal AD DC winbindd implementation, which is not the same as this 

smbd currently is listening on 139 and 445 ports - thus, I assume, it 
serves winbind itself. However, it isn't available any more for PAM. How 
shall I use Samba internal winbind implementation? When I initially 
installed and set up ADs, wbinfo worked fine. Currently, it says:

# wbinfo -P
could not obtain winbind interface details: 
could not obtain winbind domain name!
checking the NETLOGON for domain[] dc connection to "" failed
failed to call wbcPingDc: WBC_ERR_WINBIND_NOT_AVAILABLE

How do I make winbind available (that means available for PAM,a s well)?

Note: libpam_winbind is installed.
