[SOLVED ?!] Failed to update/upgrade OMV5 webgui/nginx fails/forbidden/refused to connect

  • I can open all my dockers, but can't open the omv5 webgui directly. #It seems I miraculously fixed this sh*tshow...just posting for confirmation and "next steps"....thanks in advance.


    Code
    First error was getting the /var/log/nginx/openmediavault-webgui_error.log error: 2021/06/25 00:40:48 [error] 7207#7207: *1 directory index of "/var/www/openmediavault/" is forbidden, client: ::ffff:127.0.0.1, server: openmediavault-webgui, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", host: "127.0.0.1"

    I looked here: forbidden

    I looked here: Team

    - tried to reinstall and failed with internal errors

    ran and apt update/upgrade command and got:

    Code
    I tried this: dpkg --configure -a # same error as above.

    ran apt remove lvm2 and this happened:

    Code
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Y
    (Reading database ... 100202 files and directories currently installed.)
    Removing openmediavault (5.6.10-1) ...
    Removing lvm2 (2.03.02-3) ...
    Code
    Now back to this: apt-get install openmediavault
    Code
    That generated similar errors. I couldn't just do the same steps as above, but following an "askubuntu" forum, I needed to rm -rf /etc/lvm2 and rm -rf /etc/lvm

    Then I did an apt purge of the same:

    This worked, finally:

    Code
    root@omv5:/etc# apt-get install --reinstall openmediavault

    And surprise... I can now see the webgui!! (whew). Only thing missing now is omv5 extras--- all my dockers are working! (??)

    successfully ran:

    Code
    wget -O - https://github.com/OpenMediaVault-Plugin-Developers/packages/raw/master/install | bash

    And bingo I see everything I'm supposed to see there...finally was able to manage Portainer, etc...

    I think my installation had been broken for a while, as any upgrade from terminal or webgui gave some errors.. My system feels 100% clean. I am sorry for all the output, but this might help someone else who borked their system.

  • I got the same issue apparently...

    The ssh works and the VNC as well but nginx is non-updatable... and I cant find a way to get OMV web gui back to work any help would be helpful...


    I tried

    $ sudo apt install --reinstall --install-recommends nginx

    No success. I thought it was because I had clone my original SD card but can't find a link between cloning and the upodating...

  • I guess this solved my problem:


    Anyone using rpi-clone to automatically "live" backup the whole Raspi boot micro SD?


    the /var on the clone SD card was missing due to rpi_clone exlusion on live backup, this was triggering the ERROR and the failure of the webguy nginx server to start.
