Solved: Xbian-config addon "check for system updates" stuck

Xbian-config addon "check for system updates" stuck
Software
XBian version: 20161221-0
XBMC/Kodi version:17.3-Git:2017-05-26-1521bf9
Overclock settings:default

Hardware
Device type and model (e.g. Raspberry Pi Model A/B 256/512 MB, CuBox-i i4Pro, ...):RPI 3
Power supply rating:Original power supply adapter
SD card size and make/type:16Gb
Network (Ethernet or wireless):Kodi using Ethernet; wireless adapter active too on different network
Connected devices (TV, USB, network storage, ...):Philips TV, External USB harddisks Seagate and Hitachi

Log files

Will post any if needed...

Problem description:
When I try running "Check for system updates" via kodi gui xbian-config addon in menu "Update", the addon will freeze in the splash screen "Please wait... Retrieving list of upgradeable packages...".

How to reproduce:
However if I stop dnsmasq (sudo service dnsmasq stop) that is also running on the same raspberry pi, the update check seems to continue and ends as you would expect and returns back to the menu.
Dnsmasq is used by all my network devices effectively configured in my router.
However I have excluded the raspberry pi from using dnsmasq by setting a static network ip address and configuring use of google dns servers locally. This seems to be ok; if I check /etc/resolv.conf it displays the google dns servers.
Also, on command-line sudo apt-get update and apt-get upgrade works just fine.
So it seems that the addon is doing something extra or different than the command line commands.

I have checked several log files, but I have not found any info that can solve the freeze problem of the addon; the only workaround I have now is stopping the dnsmasq service and once update check is done starting the service again.

Can anybody help me or give some pointers to solve my problem?

Thanks.

RE: Xbian-config addon "check for system updates" stuck
Hmmm, that's strange Huh

I know some users using Pi-Hole (that uses dnsmasq too) without such issues.

Did you already try that this Pi using dnsmasq as DNS resolver too?

Without logs it is very difficult to give any tips. Please enable debug messages (set DEBUG variable in file /etc/default/xbmc to DEBUG="--debug" and restart Kodi) and try again

Interesting part are three lines:

Terminal

root@kmxbilr2 ~ # cat /home/xbian/.kodi/temp/kodi.log | grep xbian-config\ updates

Aug 7 10:51:46 kmxbilr2 843 496.572235 T:1825567488 DEBUG: XBian-config : xbian-config updates updatedb : ['0']
Aug 7 10:51:46 kmxbilr2 970 496.699066 T:1825567488 DEBUG: XBian-config : xbian-config updates distupgrade query : ['0']
Aug 7 10:51:47 kmxbilr2 133 496.861481 T:1825567488 DEBUG: XBian-config : xbian-config updates list packages : ['-2']

Those three commands are called when processing "Check for system updates"

You can run them from cmdline as well (note: if you're not root you have to use sudo):

Terminal

root@kmxbilr2 ~ # xbian-config updates updatedb
0
root@kmxbilr2 ~ # xbian-config updates distupgrade query
0
root@kmxbilr2 ~ # xbian-config updates list packages
-2
root@kmxbilr2 ~ #

RE: Xbian-config addon "check for system updates" stuck
Nachteule, thanks for your response.

Actually I am running pi-hole (which runs just fine) on the raspberry pi.
I have set the DEBUG option and generated the kodi.log file; please find below the interesting part of it.
It looks like the three commands that you mentioned are being executed and completed.
Last log line until freeze is at 20:37:24.272.
After approx. 10 minutes, I stopped dnsmasq and the log continues starting at 20:47:22.529 and onwards...
I don't understand from the log file what happened and why the software was waiting on something that had anything to do with dnsmasq or maybe it is something completely different?

I have just installed your fix.
After installing I ran "Check for system updates again" (with service dnsmasq running) and now it returns as per normal back to the update menu.
So it seems to be fixed. Cool
Once another new update can be loaded I will test again just to have that scenario too...
Thanks for your help! Can be updated to [solved].
