    Awesome. well the gui is working it all looks cleaned up now.


    the drives are mounted. I have not rebooted yet. so that might make me a little nervious when i do. (af

    but thank you so much. I will be donating for sure when i get back from work tonight. I do appreciate the forum support!


    As these type of upgrades tend to make one a little nervous when it comes to data. :P

    Here are my results from running the scripts.

    fix5to6upgrade


    purge-union script


    openmediavault-unionfilesystems - moving to openmediavault-mergerfs - done


    Even though i got latest updates to version 5.6.28
    It still shows

    Code
    ii  omvextras-unionbackend            5.0.2                        all          union filesystems backend plugin for openmediavault
    ii  openmediavault-unionfilesystems   5.1.4                        all          Union filesystems plugin for OpenMediaVault.

    Am i supposed to install the new mergerFS plugin and then uninstall unionfilesystems before i upgrade to 6.0?
    The process is not clear.


    I simply looked at the plugin list and saw all my plugins listed as done or moved.

    So assumed omv-release-upgrade would do a clean upgrade

    I wanted to edit this in my post but i hit the character limit.

    How can i update unionbackend and unionfilesystem. I guess i was supposed to update them to new name of mergerfs?

    omv-release-upgrade is missing now. So not sure how best to update those now.

    Code
     dpkg -l | grep openm
    ii  omvextras-unionbackend            5.0.2                        all          union filesystems backend plugin for openmediavault
    iU  openmediavault                    6.0.20-1                     all          openmediavault - The open network attached storage solution
    ii  openmediavault-keyring            1.0                          all          GnuPG archive keys of the OpenMediaVault archive
    iU  openmediavault-luksencryption     6.0                          all          OpenMediaVault LUKS encryption plugin
    iU  openmediavault-omvextrasorg       6.0.8                        all          OMV-Extras.org Package Repositories for OpenMediaVault
    iU  openmediavault-snapraid           6.0.4                        all          snapraid plugin for OpenMediaVault.
    ii  openmediavault-unionfilesystems   5.1.4                        all          Union filesystems plugin for OpenMediaVault.

    I got the latest updates for my OMV and rebooted it and everything was working fine. All my plugins seems to be on the approved list. Just using, luks, unionbackend, and snapraid,

    I typed the omv-release-upgrade and it failed. Here is what i could capture from my terminal.

    It fails when the collectd service fails to restart due to filename being too long. and then all the other packages after start to fail.


    Failed to restart collectd.service: Unit srv-ae0f5928\x2d3495\x2d4ef8\x2d9e08\x2d3cfa3665428d.mount failed to load properly: File name too long.


    Any ideas how to recover?

    Full code at the bottom.

    I am doing a similar setup with luks and unionfs.


    adding nofail to the options of unionfs either in gui or fstab does allow the system to boot instead of crashing to emergency state.


    However after unlocking the luks encrypted drives the shared folder will not mount with nofail in the options of unionfs. I have to remove it and do a mount -a for shared folders to work gain.


    Any ideas on how to fix this? or a workaround?


    I really wanted to commit to encryption and get myself used to it.
