Aah..   Sorry typo. 

systemctl unmask samba-ad-dc  (umask / unmask ) 
systemctl enable samba-ad-dc 
systemctl start samba-ad-dc 

Im very buzy, so slow in responce atm, but if a service fails to upgrade and starts it gets masked.
Unmasking is needed then. To make sure its all enable i also run extra enable.

No, at start indexing is done, start : top and wait untill indexing is done. 

The upgrade fail, is one i need to adress in the packaging. ( sorry bit late ) 
My steps when i upgrade my DC's. 

samba-tool dbcheck (--cross-nc) ( check for errors ) 
samba-tool dbcheck --reindex	( re-index the samba-ad ) 
apt dist-upgrade -dy (get all files, download only) 
apt dist-upgrade --autoremove --purge ( !dist-upgrade..,  because if packages are new added you need it. so dist-upgrade ) 
	--autoremove, example libldb1 gets replaced by libldb2, without autoremove is not upgrade and removed and samba errors. 
	--purge, remove and delete old not used packages. ( like libldb1 )
If you now look in the logs you seel lots of samba errors, this is correct, because your are from the upgrades while samba is running.
Not a problem at all. 
And last, after the upgrade i always cleanup logs and reboot, it thats no options for you. 
Not fixed at this point and samba not starting. 

apt --fix-broken install
systemctl unmask samba-ad-dc
systemctl stop samba-ad-dc 
systemctl start samba-ad-dc 

And now your done, more DC's, wait untill indexing is done then next.
