Distribution updates going awry!

Wed Aug 26, 2015 10:06 pm

Can someone explain what on earth is happening?
In the last 36 hours, starting from a 2015-05-05 3.18 kernel image, apt-get update & apt-get upgrade have variously produced
3.18.7+ kernel with appropriate modules, 4.1.6+ with appropriate modules and most recently 3.18.11+ with 4.1.6 and 4.1.6+ modules and errors all over the place. I'm struggling to support people with a new piece of hardware and the goalposts keep moving.

Not sure what you're referring to, everything is fine here.

What do you see if you type uname -a?
Linux raspberrypi 3.18.11-v7+ #781 SMP PREEMPT Tue Apr 21 18:07:59 BST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux

What do you see if you type ls -l /lib/modules?
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Aug 26 23:07 4.1.6+
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Aug 26 23:07 4.1.6-v7+

So where are the modules for 3.18.11-v7+ I wonder?

Yesterday's update to a different machine gave:
Linux RasPi2B1 4.1.6-v7+ #810 SMP PREEMPT Tue Aug 18 15:32:12 BST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux

with the correct modules.
A third machine updated recently has the following:

Linux RasPi2B2 3.18.11-v7+ #781 SMP PREEMPT Tue Apr 21 18:07:59 BST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux
and in /lib/modules:
total 24
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Apr 26 09:39 3.18.11+
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Apr 26 09:39 3.18.11-v7+
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Apr 26 09:36 3.18.7+
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Apr 26 09:36 3.18.7-v7+
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Mar 20 10:51 3.18.9+
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Mar 20 10:51 3.18.9-v7+

So what's going wrong with update/upgrade at this moment in time?

Did you reboot?

Code: Select all

pi@serge-wheezypi ~ $ uname -a
Linux serge-wheezypi 4.1.6-v7+ #810 SMP PREEMPT Tue Aug 18 15:32:12 BST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux
pi@serge-wheezypi ~ $ ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`
kernel  modules.alias  modules.alias.bin  modules.builtin  modules.builtin.bin  modules.dep  modules.dep.bin  modules.devname  modules.order  modules.softdep  modules.symbols  modules.symbols.bin

No worries.

As far as 'moving goalposts' go, they're just keeping up with the stable branch.

On a related note, are there plans to update the download image (currently 05-05) so it is 4.1 as well, or is that not being done until Jessie is "completely" ready?

No, I can't think of anything funny that won't offend someone if they want it to...

There are no plans to release any more wheezy images.

OK, understood. Is there a timescale for jessie, or is it a case of "when it's ready" ?

There's an internal schedule for things, but it may slip so.... "when it's ready", just in case.
