I've an update, not all software was working.
I had various permission issue with all the packages contained in "xbian-package-download".
The quick solution was reinstall all package:

Code:
apt-get install --reinstall xbian-package-transmission
apt-get install --reinstall xbian-package-nzbget
apt-get install --reinstall xbian-package-sickbeard
apt-get install --reinstall xbian-package-couchpotato
apt-get install --reinstall xbian-package-headphones

Now everything is good!

Thanks for your help.

Now I'm having the issue with the sudo message. I remake the whole sdcard, do the updates (even tried to use devel) and after a few days the sudo problem comes back trashing my installation.

It seems to happens always after a reboot of the system. I wonder if the package that causes this has been identified.

At this point is really frustrating.

@dgarciam

What did you before this issues came up?

I don't think that the package was identified. Most of those packages are old (bzw, I'm not using that download packages)

And of course, this thread is also very old Dodgy

@dgarciam,

Tell us more about your set up.

For a start I would look at the power supply you are using and its ratings.
Also, what make and type of memory card?
What else is connected to USB ports?

RE: Strange issue: sudo: effective uid is not 0, is sudo installed setuid root?
Of Course. Here is my setup:

RPI2
HDD 1TB NTFS connected to it.
Networking is all wired.
SD CARD: SanDisk Ultra 64GB microSDXC UHS-I Card

First was running stable version and now running devel (upgrade via apt-get dist-upgrade instead of apt upgrade, which i learned today was the best way).

Today at lunch, i went home with an restored image i did last time i had to rebuild the pi. Once everything booted, I uninstalled maraschino and headphone (purged) since i didn't use them, and last time i installed headphones alone, upgraded some package and all went to hell, after that commented all the apt sources and chmod 400 /etc/init.d/unattended-upgrades, since i noticed that the problem came always after a reboot when a single package was pending. Don't know which package, because an apt list --upgradable never told me which package was gonna be upgraded.

After I rebooted a couple times w/o problems. Let's hope this time i won't have the problem. In 6 months i will enable the sources, do an upgrade and see how all goes.

Finally, installed plexserver. So, i have running and working normally: kodi, sickbeard, nzget, plexserver, couchpotato.

Sorry to not be able to bring more info at the moment, and just rant. But honestly, the last 2 weeks were nasty.

That was bad idea. Look to FAQ, section Why should I not use apt-get

Enabling devel repo and sudo apt-get update;sudo apt-get upgrade is enough

Hmmm, still not clear what exactly happened.

But anyway, for those situations we have snapshots. They allows easy and fast restoring to a previous working point. Before you install packages via apt-get (but not with dpkg), system makes a snapshot of your / fs. This works really great, there is only one limitation: /boot partition is not preserved, you have to keep this mind when kernel is updated

But you have working system again, that's the most important Smile

RE: Strange issue: sudo: effective uid is not 0, is sudo installed setuid root?
That is what i meant. I read that apt dist-upgrade is a no-no on xbian. Will have it clear next time, but after so many years on debian and then ubuntu, habits die hard.

The problem is (at least to my knowledge. I admit being a noob to btfrs) i can't roll back a snapshot w/o root access. Sudo is not working, and the password i previously set for root i can't use it using su - anymore (worked at the time of set up).

I tried to make a cronjob that would call a non root bash script that would list the snapshots available, and then i could modify to restore any snapshot i wanted, but i accidentally chmod +s the script as root and of course i wasn't able to modify the script anymore
