  • /etc/passwd is not a command.

    Perhaps you are doing something wrong if you are having problems upgrading or getting updates? That is my thought.

    Why are you messing about with putty and ssh? What is it that you can't do in the web GUI? Do just one wrong thing you can easily totally break OMV. Especially if you are logged in as root using putty and ssh and try to run files randomly. That is the nuclear option.

    Be smart - be lazy. Clone your rootfs.

  • Looking at the tag, you're using 3.0... that's your issue. The repositories have closed because the OS has been EOL for over a year.

    You have 2 options.

    1. Clean install 4.0

    2. There are multiple threads on the forum about this issue and getting your 3.0 OS updated to 4.0.

    Once you're system is updated, you need to do a better job of keeping your system up to date to avoid these problems.
