I’m running OSMC 2020.06-1 clean install, and trying to reinstall Samba which worked great earlier on same version, but now I can’t install it. Tried app-store first but didn’t work, said all packages weren’t installed. So tried SSH by first doing “sudo apt-get update”, reboot, then “sudo apt-get install smb-app-osmc” but then getting “E: Unable to locate package smb-app-osmc”.
No, I don’t have a copy of it. I guess I was wondering if it’s possible to find an old version of it, but maybe not.
When using “grab-logs -A” I get an error message saying it can’t upload the logs:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/grab-logs”, line 836, in dispatch_logs
raise ValueError(‘Upload Returned Empty String’)
ValueError: Upload Returned Empty String
Failed to upload log files, copying to /boot instead. (Unable to verify)
In /boot I find “uploading.txt” but that file tails with some events from yesterday, so it seems the failed installation of samba (that I just retried) wont write anything, at least not to the end of that file.
Any other idea? Is it possible to upload “uploading.txt” any other way?
We only support one upstream distro previous to maintain an upgrade path. This means that we currently support Buster, Bullseye only.
You may want to migrate to a newer version of OSMC. The samba package we provide is a meta package however and just bundles the upstream version of Samba with some overrides, so you could replicate the changes it introduces trivially, but unless you have a reason to remain on an older version, I’d suggest upgrading.
osmc@osmc:~$ sudo apt install samba-common
