NEWBIE - upgrade 4-->5 problems

  • Hi all!

    I am a newbie, slowly learning the basics of Linux and OMV.

    After successfully upgrading OMV4 to 5 and following techdadlife instructions and other threads (newest installation script version) OMV is up and running but I have a few problems.

    I can't log in on the admin page, I get this error:

    Error #0:
    OMV\Rpc\Exception: Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/
    Stack trace:
    #0 /var/www/openmediavault/rpc/ OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('UserMgmt', 'authUser', Array, Array, 2, true)
    #1 [internal function]: OMVRpcServiceSession->login(Array, Array)
    #2 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ call_user_func_array(Array, Array)
    #3 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ OMV\Rpc\ServiceAbstract->callMethod('login', Array, Array)
    #4 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/proxy/ OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('Session', 'login', Array, Array, 3)
    #5 /var/www/openmediavault/rpc.php(45): OMV\Rpc\Proxy\Json->handle()
    #6 {main}

    Apart from these two issues, ALL my dockers, share and services are functioning as normal. I run Pi-hole, privoxy, Syncthing, folding@home and backups and more on my OMV.

    Login to the admin page and the issue to update the OMV installation fom Cockpit-docker is no longer functioning.

    I should say that the last part of the upgrade process gave me this error:

    Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

  • Hi and thanks for your answer.

    Seems something broke the internet access, only from command prompt though. I tried restoring it with omv-firstaid but that didn't help.

    "W: Failed to fetch Could not resolve '' " and so on

    But..shouldn't the login work nonetheless?

    This is the error I get after reconfig in omv-firstaid:

    Configuring network interface. Please wait ...

    ERROR: Failed to connect /var/lib/openmediavault/engined.sock: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

  • I found a thread with the similiar problem and followed the guide but after:

    systemctl start openmediavault-engined.service

    I get this error:

    Job for openmediavault-engined.service failed because the control process exited with error code.

    See "systemctl status openmediavault-engined.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

    The engined.service is running but "journalctl -xe" gives me an aoutput with losts af connection errors.

    No idea what to do now...

  • *UPDATE* After a powershortage due to a storm last night the server now boots up in emergency mode so I reckon I have to reinstall it.

    I can't even start OMV-firstaid "command not found".

    Anyone got ideas?
