I would appreciate if someone can help.
Whenever system try to update after version 2017.03-1 I get a prompt saying that update failed and to report it on OSMC forum. When I go to run on my add-on program “My OSMC” and try to update manually I get add-on error with the prompt to upload log. Upload log also fails and it is instead copied on my card.
Sounds like a connectivity problem.
Can you connect via command line?
Details regarding how to access the command line interface can be found here on our Wiki: Accessing the command line - General - OSMC
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
if that fails let us know what it reports and then also try to upload logs with
grab-logs -A (should give you a URL). If even that fails we look further.
Thank you for fast reply.
It seemed to work but it is very slow. Now i got stuck at 42% in last 20 minutes without moving (Unpacking Webmin 1.850 over 1.831). Should I restart and try again or wait?
Edit: Sorry for my impatience It started moving again now at 55%.
No I suggest you wait. But if unpacking (and not downloading) is so slow than I think you have an issue on your system
You might have a lot of packages or a slow SD card
OK. It finished (at one point I had to restart because it froze) I am now at 2017-06-1. It was very slow but successful.
Another question I have (I apologize if this is not the proper thread to ask) but last month or so every now and then system would freeze and I have to restart. I checked my SD card space and it reads:
/DEV/MMVBLK0P2 used 5.4G available 1.3G Use % 82%
/DEV/MMVBLK0P1 used 41M available 199M Use % 17%
Should I get a bigger SD card? After all I have more than 18,000 TV episodes and 3,000 movies.
Thank you so much for your help. I am always amazed how you guys are so helpful, knowledgeable and fast to help. Kudos to all of you.

Freezes could be a sign of issues with your current SD and as you’ve pointed out your running low on space; so I would recommend replacing. Whats the size is the current SD card? I only asked as I believe the max recommend size is 32gb.
Recommended by who, Tom? Is this a technical limitation or just ‘you won’t want to keep more than that on a device which can die suddenly’?
This appears to the technical recommendation, over at Raspberry Stack.
Although there are reports of success over 32gb, I just think its a bit of hit & miss beyond the limit.
Thanks for the heads-up. I’ve been soaking up info on SD cards this week to see if the installer needs tweaking.
Got the same problem.
On the other hand, updating from the ssh console works like a charm.
ssh update not so successful in my version of this problem. no updates since march get following message in console when i try to update.
W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie-updates/non-free/binary-armhf/Packages Something wicked happened resolving ‘ftp.debian.org:http’ (-5 - No address associated with hostname)
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Well first view indicates a DNS issue. But for better troubleshooting I suggest to upload full logs with
I guess it could be a problem with my VPN configuration maybe.
Looking at your log file I just wanted to say that. Suggest to just shutdown openvpn for the time of the update.
