OMV GUI Login Error: Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory

  • I have been struggling with this for hours, but still cannot resolve the following error when I login to OMV 5 GUI. Steps:

    1. Go to server IP using default port 80

    2. Systems displays login page.

    4. Enter admin/password.

    5. There is some delay then it throws the following error:


    Code
    Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory
    Error #0:OMV\Rpc\Exception: Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/rpc.inc:141Stack trace:#0 /var/www/openmediavault/rpc/session.inc(57): OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('UserMgmt', 'authUser', Array, Array, 2, true)#1 [internal function]: OMVRpcServiceSession->login(Array, Array)#2 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/serviceabstract.inc(123): call_user_func_array(Array, Array)#3 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/rpc.inc(86): OMV\Rpc\ServiceAbstract->callMethod('login', Array, Array)#4 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/proxy/json.inc(97): OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('Session', 'login', Array, Array, 3)#5 /var/www/openmediavault/rpc.php(45): OMV\Rpc\Proxy\Json->handle()#6 {main}


    I checked this board, and in the other case I found it said to check for unsupported plugins, which I did:


    Code
    dpkg -l | grep openm

    with these results:


    Code
    ii openmediavault 5.5.16-1 all openmediavault - The open network attached storage solution
    ii openmediavault-flashmemory 5.0.7 all folder2ram plugin for OpenMediaVault
    ic openmediavault-keyring 1.0 all GnuPG archive keys of the OpenMediaVault archive
    ii openmediavault-omvextrasorg 5.4.2 all OMV-Extras.org Package Repositories for OpenMediaVault
    ic openmediavault-usbbackup 5.0.6-1 all openmediavault USB/eSATA backup plugin
    ic openmediavault-wol 3.4.2 all OpenMediaVault WOL plugin


    Note my configuration on Raspberry Pi 3:


    Code
    Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.46 experimental Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) 5.4.72-v7+
    System load: 0.00 0.00 0.00 Up time: 4:19 hours
    Memory usage: 10 % of 974MB IP: 192.168.0.19
    CPU temp: 55°C
    Usage of /: 34% of 7.2G storage/: 6% of 1.8T


    I also tried:


    Code
    omv-aptclean


    which threw a few errors at the end.


    Code
    E: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Packages.gz Method gave a blank filename
    E: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-all.gz File not found - /var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-all.gz (2: No such file or directory)
    [tt]E: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-armhf.gz File not found - /var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-armhf.gz (2: No such file or directory)
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


    Also rebooted after with errors:



    Also you should know that when I use:


    Code
    omv-firstaid


    I get a bunch of error messages saying the various .rrd files have timestamps in the future. Each time I run it, answering Yes to delete the files, it says it is deleting them (50 files each time), I can do this indefinitely, even between reboots. That doesn't make sense to me.


    "date" returns correct date, time and timezone and I am using a timeserver.


    Any ideas? What should I try next?

  • ic openmediavault-keyring 1.0 all GnuPG archive keys of the OpenMediaVault archive

    Try

    Code
    wget -O "/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/openmediavault-archive-keyring.asc" https://packages.openmediavault.org/public/archive.key
    apt-key add "/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/openmediavault-archive-keyring.asc"
    apt-get update
  • Thanks for the recommendation. After running the commands and a reboot, I am still getting the same exact errors logging into the GUI. Could this be a permissions issue? Also note that there were errors. Here is the terminal output of all three of the above commands with errors highlighted:


    Here is the dpkg list:

    Code
    root@MediaServerPi1:~# dpkg -l | grep openm
    ii openmediavault 5.5.16-1 all openmediavault - The open network attached storage solution
    ii openmediavault-flashmemory 5.0.7 all folder2ram plugin for OpenMediaVault
    ic openmediavault-keyring 1.0 all GnuPG archive keys of the OpenMediaVault archive
    ii openmediavault-omvextrasorg 5.4.2 all OMV-Extras.org Package Repositories for OpenMediaVault
    ic openmediavault-usbbackup 5.0.6-1 all openmediavault USB/eSATA backup plugin
    ic openmediavault-wol 3.4.2 all OpenMediaVault WOL plugin
    root@MediaServerPi1:~#

    It looks like the keyring version didn't change.


    Any other thoughts on how to resolve?

  • Hi, Ran suggested commands and got some errors:

    apt clean:


    Code
    E: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Packages.gz Method gave a blank filename
    E: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-armhf.gz File not found - /var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-armhf.gz (2: No such file or directory)
    E: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-all.gz File not found - /var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-all.gz (2: No such file or directory)
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    ERROR: Command 'omv-aptclean' returned non-zero exit status 100.


    apt-get update produced similar errors:

    Code
    E: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Packages.gz Method gave a blank filename
    E: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-armhf.gz File not found - /var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-armhf.gz (2: No such file or directory)
    E: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-all.gz File not found - /var/cache/openmediavault/archives/Contents-all.gz (2: No such file or directory)
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    Are these critical errors?


    Thanks for your help with this!

  • I really dislike these trainwreck rpi installs... Did you install with the install script or update from 4.x??


    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openmediavault-local.list

    sudo omv-aptclean

    wget http://packages.openmediavault.org/public/pool/main/o/openmediavault-keyring/openmediavault-keyring_1.0_all.deb

    sudo dpkg -i openmediavault-keyring_1.0_all.deb

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install openmediavault-usbbackup openmediavault-wol

  • I updated from OMV 4, and I am truly sorry for the trouble.


    I executed all the commands. Rebooted and cleared my browser cache. None of the commands threw errors, but the problem remains. Note that the I am able to access shared directories and media files using VMC, so it seems the underlying services are running, just can't use the web interface. I tried changing the port in omv-firstaid and it threw an error as well.


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


    GUI Login throws the same error as before:

    Code
    Error #0:
    OMV\Rpc\Exception: Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/rpc.inc:141

    #6 {main}


    Results for

    dpkg -l | grep openm

    Code
    ii openmediavault 5.5.16-1 all openmediavault - The open network attached storage solution
    ii openmediavault-flashmemory 5.0.7 all folder2ram plugin for OpenMediaVault
    ii openmediavault-keyring 1.0 all GnuPG archive keys of the OpenMediaVault archive
    ii openmediavault-omvextrasorg 5.4.2 all OMV-Extras.org Package Repositories for OpenMediaVault
    ic openmediavault-usbbackup 5.0.6-1 all openmediavault USB/eSATA backup plugin
    ic openmediavault-wol 3.4.2 all OpenMediaVault WOL plugin

    Should the keyring version be 1.0?

  • I finally got it working. The problem was that openmediavault-engined was somehow masked and was not starting. I have no idea how this happened.


    First I unmasked the file:


    Systemctl umask openmediavault-engined

    Bash
    Systemctl umask openmediavault-engined
    Systemctl start openmediavault-engined

    I was then able to login, even after a reboot, but things were missing from the GUI.


    So I ran


    Bash
    omv-aptclean

    Rebooted, cleared cache, and we are up and running.
