I was updating from the October build to the latest version which was only released a couple days ago.
My pi started freezing about a month ago, and last week the freezes had become very frequent (almost daily). These freezes would happen only if the system had been idle for more than a few hours. I figured updating could help with the issue but the update didn’t go as planned either.
Mid-way through the update. I got a bunch of errors and I’m quite sure it’s stuck now. I can ping it but can’t SSH. After the above-mentioned freezes, I wouldn’t be able to do either.
Are those changes still there after a reboot?
Definetly suggest to do a image of the card and test the card with h2testw. If card OK you can write the image back. If H2testw fails you can dump the card.
Yeah. All the new packages are there. Skin changes too. I modified the menu for example, and every change was kept.
Pi seems to be back to the way it was: Daily freezes. When it freezes, I can’t SSH into or even ping the device. The SD LED never lights up, and all I see is the thermometer icon on a black screen. I’ve checked the logs but I really can’t see what could cause it to overheat. Again I emphasize this only happens when the device has been idle for a while (more than a few hours).
I looked at those threads. One user had a bad power supply, the other was overclocking, this guy had a library 370 subfolders deep… I have none of those problems. Nothing described in those threads applied to my pi which is why I opened this thread in the first place. Nothing in the few threads marked as solved helped me at all.
Nope. I only see the thermometer icon after booting while everything starts up (or during a library update). Also, the pi never freezes in these scenarios. After a few idle hours, however, I see a black screen, an unresponsive pi and the thermometer.
I’m watching a 1080p video right now at 58 degrees.
