Upgrade from 4 to 5

  • Hello, macom,


    I have this small mobo that looks like a raspberry pi called helios4 > https://kobol.io/helios4/


    The HDDs are connected via SATA, it is all set up in its own enclosure.


    I checked in a different thread, that you attempted the full backup using an OMV4 backup plugin, and selected the option "fsarchiver" should I go with that one too? Also, you are telling the OMV4 to store the SD card full backup in the same OMV4 system data drives/ RAID share SMB directory?




    Backup completed:


    Here is how my repos look like:



    Should I remove the plugins before starting the "# ./omv-release-upgrade-5" script?


    Thank you in advance,

  • No idea, how the post ended up in a new thread :/



    Should I remove the plugins before starting the "# ./omv-release-upgrade-5" script?

    Only the ones which you are not using and the ones which are not available in OMV5.

    RE: Why should you use or not use dockers

  • It was moved by I guess an admin ryecoaaron, I think it make sense.

    This is now a pre-upgrade OMV4 to OMV5 discussion.


    Any additional concerns?

  • macom,


    You are right... I also, checked your other thread in which you posted a success restore with a filesystem btrfs? in my case, I am using:

    EXT4


    And this is my current RAID configuration:


    Looks like a not too complex set up I did not configure any other plugins other than the extras repo and the shell in a box. No plex server no docker, etc...


    I am hoping it is OK to move forward...


    What do you think, the worst scenario, re-install OMV5 and you mentioned that the system might recognize the RAID mdadm mirror?


    Sincerely,

  • macom,


    root@nas:~/openmediavault-upgrade-4.7# ./omv-release-upgrade-5


    Is this completed?


    The installation stopped there.

  • shell in a box

    the plugin is not available in OMV5. So remove it.



    What do you think, the worst scenario, re-install OMV5 and you mentioned that the system might recognize the RAID mdadm mirror?

    Should be ok as the drives are connected via sata, not USB.


    Make sure to run the update script in a screen session. The script will run for some time and you want to be able to reconnect to the session in case you loose the connection.

  • No. You need to fix your repos before running the upgrade - RE: omv-extras repos moving to github

  • ryecoaaron / macom,


    I did that before and I was still getting that stretch error when running the apt-get update...

    Code
    root@nas:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# ls -l
    total 28
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 52 Jul 23 23:55 armbian.list
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 70 Aug 1 2019 armbian.list.disabled
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 149 Jul 23 23:55 omv-extras-org.list
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 79 Jul 23 23:53 openmediavault-kernel-backports.list
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 60 Apr 25 2019 openmediavault-local.list

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 450 Aug 15 2019 stretch.list


    Should I delete that file > stretch.list?


    I already completed this

    Thank you in advance,

  • I did that before

    Something must have went wrong because I still see bintray repos and I don't see the omv-extras .bak file. I would delete these;


    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/omv-extras*list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/stretch.list


    Then post the output of: sudo apt-get update

  • ryecoaaron / macom,


    I noticed that in this file > `omv-extras-org.list`


    I still have this:

    Code
    root@nas:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# cat omv-extras-org.list
    # This is file is generated.
    # OMV-Extras repos
    #
    # OMV-Extras.org
    deb https://dl.bintray.com/openmediavault-plugin-developers/arrakis stretch main

    :rolleyes:

  • ryecoaaron / macom,


    Looks better.

    Should I try running the upgrade script again?

    `root@nas:~/openmediavault-upgrade-4.7# ./omv-release-upgrade-5`

    Thank you in advance,

  • What is the output of:


    dpkg -l | grep openme

    apt-cache policy openmediavault

  • ryecoaaron,


    Will do.


    After the dist upgrade completes, should I reboot the system? this is not Windows but, just wondering if a reboot will be required...


    Sincerely,

  • It wouldn't hurt to reboot.

  • Ryecoaaron,


    Noted, I really appreciate the help. I guess Debian has definitely come a long way... five years ago, I will forget it and just do a fresh install... I guess the upgrades are becoming better, tested, etc... I will not claim victory yet, but so far so good.


    I will report here either result good or bad.
