omv-release-upgrade errors out

  • Just tried to omv-release-upgrade from OMV5 to OMV6, but the upgrade errors out with the following message:

    Looking into dpkg -l, I get:

    root@MyRS:~# dpkg -l | grep openmed                                                                                                                                                                                                             ii  omvextras-unionbackend          5.0.2      all    union filesystems backend plugin for openmediavault

    dpkg -C yields:

    Any advice to resolve this, or should I restore my backup or install cleanly?

  • I've been able to solve two issues:

    1. I had a problem with collectd because I changed my domain sometime ago. Found the solution on this very forum: #RE: collectd configuration
    2. The Brother printer drivers were no longer needed anyways, so I simply purged them

    Running omv-upgrade succeeded now. YAY! I could also log into the OMV6 GUI and "apply changes" as requested.

    Now my Raid, my mergerfs and my extensions are not showing, but it seems I've advanced...

    dpkg -C does not return any errors anymore.

    It seems the old unionfs and mergerfs extensions have not migrated correctly, probably because the migration was interrupted by the collectd error. Is there any way to migrate those "after the fact"? As I'm on OMV6 already omv-release-upgrade obviously does not longer exist...

  • I think, I've got it! :)

    Here what I've done now:

    3. Reactivated the missing extensions/plugin via

    dpkg-divert --remove --rename /usr/sbin/omv-mkaptidx
    omv-mkaptidx described in many other places on this forum

    4. Received loads and loads of RPC errors when looking for my RAID and mergerfs. The solution was very simple. I only had to remove the old "version 5.x" mergerfs plugin. After I've purged it, Raid and mergerfs reappeared. No RPC errors anymore...

    It seems everything is working now! YIKES!!! :)
