I haven’t been able to get an update to work since January. every time the update fails I end up having to manually re-install version 2018.01-1 because it’s the last one that actually works.
Here’s the details: Raspbery Pi 1 v2 with a hard wired internet connection not wi-fi and a USB install to a hard drive…
On bootup with version 2018.01-1 everything proceeds as normal. But after any update the bootup fails.
Tonight I let it update to the latest version and it now fails to find the hard drive and halts the bootup. On screen reads as follows:
waiting for root filesystem device /dev/sda1 (that’s as it should be so far) then we get:
Fatal Error: could not find root file system /dev/sda1 - if this is a USB install please check the USB drive is connected.
OSMC initramfs Rescue Console.

And that’s where it stops every time…
I’m not even able to ssh into it, because obviously it hasn’t even booted. It’s not a faulty card, or a faulty hard drive or anything hardware here that has a problem. As I said if I re-install 2018.01-1 as a USB install from scratch, it all works fine. But it won’t work with anything beyond that. It’s something to do with the software configuration beyond version 2018.01-1
It’s not the first time I’ve reported this, but I still don’t have a solution or a reason it’s happening
Is there a known fault and solution please?
