I don’t know what is happening but I was doing some heavy back-up on the network when suddenly I lost the samba connection and RPI2 is looping with the sad face trying to load Kodi. The version of OSMC should be the one before the last-second updating.
There are several services broken without any apparently reason and when I try to restart, or reload, them, they fail to reload properly.
I am a bit in panic because I don’t have absolutely idea of the causes and I didn’t figure out any solutions.
UNIT LOAD ACTIVE SUB DESCRIPTION
● samba.service loaded failed failed Samba Server
● smbd.service loaded failed failed LSB: start Samba SMB/CIFS dae
● systemd-hostnamed.service loaded failed failed Hostname Service
● systemd-update-utmp.service loaded failed failed Update UTMP about System Boot
The only thing I would do is scream WTF!!!
Maybe is something easy but right know I am pretty confused, thanks!

Yep, I have the root and the home located in an external hd with its own power supply. Unfortunately It seems I got a corrupted super block and now I must fix it manually, anyway I had better to buy an official power supply the one I have (bought within a bundle) never felt it working well.
Actually I didn’t understand what happened. Basically I believe because the undervoltage many giga of files were somehow copied inside the /media folder so suddenly I had all the root partition completely busy; this had generated all this issues: samba broken, services broken, and GUI broken.
After that I checked all the disks looking for errors and I found clean and working partitions without filesystems corruptions. I lost just few configurations on the Kodi gui, a bit annoying but easy to restore.
Anyway this experience thought the ethernet of the PI2 is not reliable for heavy files transfer, next time I will connect the OSMC hard drive to my computer when I need to copy several giga of folders between different drives.
