I had to fight with the OS and yes, I did get it to work.

The problem with LTS distros is just that, they have long term support
for the packages they originally come with, in this instance, Samba
4.7.6 . By the time 18.04 goes EOL, Samba could be near version 6.
I normally use Devuan and you can use Louis's packages with this (or
Debian, if you can put up with systemd) ;-)
