Autoupdater and reboots



  • Description

    seems that the autoupdater may not be rebooting and shutting down instead. Also, the web interface keeps showing that the router would be rebooted but never gets updated. I have to go physically reboot usually twice to get the system back up. (but web interface doesn't come up (see Bug #1502: web interface needs to be manually started)

    That is also not normal behavior, and not something that anyone else has seen that I'm aware of. Between your previous report and this one I'm guessing you have some other unrelated problem on your system. Please use the forum to diagnose issues, if a bug has been determined from that information, then it can be entered here.

    hardware is Watchguard x1000 with VPN accelerator, 256mb RAM and 40gb HD

    this has been happening since I moved to RC1

    The firewall will reboot once the operation is completed.

    if i reload the same URL I now get this:

    Diagnostics: Firmware: Auto Update

    Packages are currently being reinstalled in the background.

    Do not make changes in the GUI until this is complete.

    I've seen this before and it seems not to ever go away



  • hours later and gui still shows:

    System: Firmware: Settings

    Packages are currently being reinstalled in the background.

    Do not make changes in the GUI until this is complete.

    (with the graphic)



  • I came back to this a few hours later and the browser was still showing the disk heads moving. I did a browser reload and it finally went away.

    1. it seems u need to reload the page
    2. it also seems to take a long time might be better to have a % indicator as well
