Pi keeps crashing after latest patches

Tue Jan 22, 2013 8:11 pm

I've been running my pi with sickbeard and sabnzbd for a few months now without any problems.

The other night I decided to run a update on the pi by running "sudo apt-get update"" and "sudo apt-get install"

After that I did a full backup of my SD card. Luckily I did because at least every 2 days now the pi crashes. I"m not sure what the error is as I don't have a monitor connected to it.

After rebooting it, it no longer boots. I either get the green LED fashing 3 times, or no green light on at all.

If I restore the SD card from backup it runs fine for a few days and then crashes again.

I'm sure its the updates that have caused this. :(

Anyone else having problems after updating it.

Debian based use

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

or if want to full system update apt-get dist-upgrade
I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !

I'll try and rerun the update and see if anything is upgraded.

I also ran a gpu update: "sudo rpi-update"

I ran all the updates again and restarted the pi - after a few hours it crashed again.

As after every crash now the fs is corrupt.

When I did a gpu firmware update is this written to a rom? Could this have broken my pi for good?

Are you heavily overclocking your raspi?

Overclocking seems to result in corrupted fs for many users for a long while and when one of my raspis did this frequently I backed down the MHz a bit and have never seen this issue since.

If not then perhaps your SD card could be the culprit?
This can happen due to overheating.

Many sources of origin for corrupted fs as you can see and I've only listed a few I've seen.

I think its set to medium OC.

Interesting enough I've swapped over to my spare pi - the 512mb model and since then its been stable.

Hope my original pi is not giving up the ghost :(

Ok - its not my pi. The 512mb version also crashed. Rebooted - SD corrupt.


Going to try a new SD card. Weird how it was all working perfectly for months before I updated :(

This is just weird - new pi, new SD card. After reinstalling, updating and rebooting. SD card corrupt again. :shock:

try it without overclocking the pi for some time. I had the same problem and after disabling the OC, everything runs fine now.

Is it the same SD card in all these cases? If so, maybe it's the card?

Have a similar problem. My raspberry is now locking up on the processing of "apt-get update".
I have re-installed the SD and it runs fine during the first update but once the OS is up to date the raspberry locks up upon doing a apt-get update.

The command should be.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
This might let it get through the updates. If you do then try.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
512MB version 2.0 as WordPress Server
Motorola Lapdock with Pi2B
Modded Rev 1.0 with pin headers at USB
