This is 'Stretching' me.... :(

RE: This is 'Stretching' me.... :(
Nice to know - But first thing I do is change name and password in Xbian (and everything else). I also regenerate the keys at random intervals.

As they say, if you are not paranoid, you are not paying attention or simply don't understand whats going on around you.

I see your Government are on the brink of 'backdooring' every device. It's a little concerning as this could become EU law (not that Brexit UK would have anything to do with that one) Tongue

THanks again, always a pleasure! Wink

P.S. Still a mystery to me why this one (and only this one) had a problem - care to speculate on the cause? (The pi this was cloned from was the first I upgraded and that one went smooth as silk).

sudo xbian-config updates distupgrade prepare
sudo xbian-config updates distupgrade execute
sudo xbian-config updates progress

(the first command modifies sources.list files, the second command runs dist-upgrade in background and the third command checks if upgrade process still running)

I ran the 3 mentioned commands, but I assume it goes wrong with the first one already:
Code:
xbian@xbian / $ sudo xbian-config updates distupgrade prepare
-2
xbian@xbian / $ sudo xbian-config updates distupgrade execute
1
nohup: redirecting stderr to stdout
xbian@xbian / $ sudo xbian-config updates progress
0
How can I fix the 'prepare' step? I tried the CLI solution, since the GUI returned an error already

1) check if /usr/local/sbin/xbian-update-repo is there and executable
2) check your files /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list [1]
3) check output of sudo apt-get update if there is any error output (probably there is)

1) the update repo was available, owned by 'staff'
I skipped 2) and went on with:
3) It resulted in an error and recommendation to execute the following:
Code:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
This worked alright and a repeat of the apt-get update didn't show this error anymore
Next error in the update process was a comment about missing pgp key. I was able to fix that with the following 2 commands:
Code:
sudo gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-key EF0F382A1A7B6xyz
sudo gpg -a --export EF0F382A1A7B6xyz | sudo apt-key add -
After that no more errors at all.

Then I made the mistake to do an apt-get upgrade. The process ran for 2 hours, updating tons of packages, but at the end..
The Xbian start-up logo comes up, the text 'network connecting' and 'starting kodi' come up, but I ended up with a blank screen. When giving the reboot command through SSH, the Xbian logo comes up, showing the shutdown procedure, followed by the start-up texts as before, but no Kodi UI.
After some trials I gave up, did a snapshot restore to last nights configuration. This booted fine and I did the upgrade through the GUI this time. Again a 1.5-2hr long update process, but this time Kodi came up fine.

Therefore, thanks for suggesting! Kodi runs just fine again!
