@shiftoneplus: Thanks for the work on this. I'd been following the github site for the fix and saw that some folks troublshot the problem and pushed out a fix a few days ago. As suggested, I ran the rpi-update.

Thanks again. My daughter is thrilled that MCPi is up and running again. Happy computing!
