Stuck on package reinstallation after 2.2.1 update



  • I did the automatic update to version 2.2.1 a couple of hours ago.  The system is still stuck on the page saying that packages are being reinstalled and telling me not to make any changes from the GUI.  According to the logs however, nothing has happened for over an hour.  It sure appears to be hung.

    Am I safe to do a reboot and see if that fixes things or will that only make them worse?

    The last of the logs read:

    If you waited an hour, you can go to Diagnostics : Backup/Restore

    There is a checkbox at the bottom of that page :      Clear Package Lock

    and hopefully all packages installed correctly.



  • That removed the notice not to change anything from the GUI.  Hopefully I didn't just turn off the Check Engine light without filling up the oil first.

    Two services aren't running. One wasn't running before the update but as I never use it, I didn't care (Darkstat Bandwidth Monitor, which always seems to stop working anyway).  The second is Secure Shell Daemon which I've not noticed before.  If I start the service it stops immediately.  As I'm not connected via SSH at the moment perhaps it's not needed currently?
