issue after upgrade to 20200205 release

Sun Feb 09, 2020 1:04 pm

I'm not a Linux expert but build a NAS using OMV by going thru a tutorial .
It worked but when I applied the latest update today, raspbian stopped to let me login user pi.
symptom is: after boot sequence, GUI login screen appears , I enter user 'pi' and my password, press 'login' then screen goes black and after a while GUI login screen reappears.

during upgrade of ssh I was asked to apply new configuration or keep current config. I had selected 'keep current', might that be related?
Any idea?

in addition to GUI login issue, OMV web gui now reports below error when I try to login there

Error #0:
OMV\Rpc\Exception: Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/rpc.inc:141

One possible cause of the GUI failing to launch is that the root filesystem is full. Another is bad ownership in /home/pi due to previous inadvisable use of "sudo".

You should be able to press Ctrl+Alt+F2 and then login using text mode for further diagnosis using "df" and "ls -al".

Ctrl+Alt+F2 got me logged in

Code: Select all

df
showed 100% use, therefore "root filesystem full" seems the root cause.

in https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/a-new- ... nt-1521853 Simon Long suggested

Code: Select all

sudo apt –fix-broken install
but that command gives an error, likely due to some typo that i couldn't figure out from reading the man page. Any hint welcome.
