File Manager crashing

Sun Nov 17, 2019 11:26 pm

I have a Pi 4 running Buster.

I did an apt-get update/upgrade before installing PuTTY. After that, I am unable to run File Manager. It starts and I can see the window but then immediately closes. It was running fine before that. Where should I start?

There have been a couple of posts about this issue already.

It looks like something broke in a recent update, but a later update may fix it. ... 8&t=256923 ... 8&t=256929

Please use

Code: Select all

apt full-upgrade
rather than

Code: Select all

 apt-get upgrade
This will fix the problem.
