wlan0 not detected after apt-get upgrade on RPi 3

  • Just completed an apt-get update & upgrade. Rebooted and apt-get update does now list the 4 fw packages that i think caused an issue with my wlan0 interface - see below.


    I'm not going to install these right now but could do if it helps with testing/resolving the issue.


    Do you think it could have been a failed/corrupted install that screwed my setup earlier today?

    I would install them. I think these packages were added later. I installed them.

    No. I think it was bad timing or you didn't click Check to see that all updates were available. Wireless on OMV isn't very well tested either because not many use it.

  • i just checked to see which repos are enabled in the GUI and noticed that debian backports was not enabled. I checked as i looked at the fw packages and they were all from debian backports. Why are they showing up to install if i don't have back port repo enabled?


    So I enabled the debian backports repo, did an apt clean from the GUI and checked for updates in the update management part of GUI. This came back with an error - but no error message (maybe a timeout)?


    Then i did an apt-get update from the CLI and this came back with an error with the public key - see below.


    Do you think this could be related to the issue I have?


    Should I resolve this error before installing any of the fw packages?


    (thanks for the help and sorry for all the questions)

  • Why are they showing up to install if i don't have back port repo enabled?

    The backports repo is enabled by default starting with OMV 3.0.59.

    Nope.

    Try updating with omv-update from the command line.


    I am creating a new image right now that should solve the problem.

  • Looks like the backports firmware package doesn't include the RPi3 wifi firmware. The following commands should fix it:


    wget https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree/raw/master/brcm80211/brcm/brcmfmac43430-sdio.bin
    wget https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree/raw/master/brcm80211/brcm/brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt
    mv brcmfmac43430-sdio* /lib/firmware/brcm/

  • @ryecoaaron - thanks a million. changing the driver files for brcmfmac43430 fixed the issue on both my test and production OMV servers. I now have wlan0 back.


    One last thing... How can I fix the the public key signature error that I have when I do apt-get update?


    The error message is

    I just uploaded a new 3.0.59 image to sourceforge that has no key issues and wireless is working.
