Kernel update issue after August 2023 update

I got the following error while updating the Aug update:
The 4K restarted but when I try to playback a show the video is almost at a standstill but the audio is fine. It also pops up the buffering wheel.

Can you post full logs please…

Hopefully I did this correct.

Thank you. Can you try to update using the My OSMC add-on again. If that fails I would suggest to connect to you box via ssh and run…

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Did your system have very high uptime? I can see the issue and have seen it on other user’s systems a couple of times. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to precisely track down the root cause yet. I am hoping this commit may be useful in the near future and reduce the incidence of this happening or fix it completely.

Checking for updates again or updating via the command line as suggested by @darwindesign should solve your issue.


I am not sure of the uptime but I do not think it was long, maybe 3 weeks?

I tried the update through osmc first and got that the syatem is up to date. I then ran the update coomand line through ssh, it reported the following

I have rebooted the device and the issue is still there, any idea where to go from here?

What issue is there exactly? Your logs show that the kernel was upgraded successfully now and there are no further updates.

I’ve moved this to a separate topic so the release thread doesn’t get too crowded.



Looks like my Thank You, all good, got lost in the switch. Again thanks for the quick responses!
