Recalbox 18.03.30 does not update to 18.04.20

  • Hello everyone,

    I am running a 18.03.30 on my Raspberry Pi 3b and now I get a notification that a new version (18.04.20) is available.
    Wenn I start the update, the new version seems to download just fine (244 MB as far as I remember).
    After that the system is restarted to install the new version.
    This however seems to fail;
    the system boots to the Recalbox Intro Screen, then suddenly reboots again and loads the
    old version 18.03.30.
    I have about 16 Gig free space on my card, so that should not be an issue.
    Is there an update log file I can check if there are any errors? How can I help to identify the problem?
    I tried to find if there are other people who have this issue, but unfortunally was not able to find a similar problem.

    @rastamannu your file system is corrupted on your SD card:

    [   18.946111] EXT4-fs (mmcblk0p2): Couldn't remount RDWR because of unprocessed orphan inode list.  Please umount/remount instead
    [   18.954178] EXT4-fs (mmcblk0p2): re-mounted. Opts: errors=remount-ro,data=ordered
    [  301.307175] EXT4-fs (mmcblk0p2): error count since last fsck: 12
    [  301.307204] EXT4-fs (mmcblk0p2): initial error at time 315536411: ext4_lookup:1584: inode 33528
    [  301.307216] EXT4-fs (mmcblk0p2): last error at time 1519757637: ext4_lookup:1584: inode 79667

    What kind of SD card do you have ?

  • @oyyodams Its a Transcend Extreme-Speed Micro SDHC 32GB Class 10 card.

    That's quite strange; everything else seems to work just fine. Could this be caused by overwriting the card with Etcher? I had a 4.x Dev Branch on it before that was no longer updateable so I've decided to reinstall.

    Do you think this could be fixed by a manual umount / fscheck?

    @rastamannu you can try, but you should consider to buy a Sandisk class 10 😉

  • Thank you for your help!
    Fixed with a manual fscheck; system updated to 18.04.20 successfully and seems to be stable.
    I'll keep an eye on the sdcard, but for now everything looks fine.
    Thread can be closed, have a nice evening everyone!
