Started Update UTMP about System Runlevel Changes

Hi everyone,

After the latest update and a restart, my raspberry pi 3b can’t go past the following line:
[OK] Started Update UTMP about System Runlevel Changes

I can SSH into it and I can see all other services running normally like SickChill, CouchPotato and NextCloud.

Only mediacenter service is not running. Restarting the service doesn’t help.

systemctl status mediacenter gives following output:

mediacenter.service - media center application

Nov 01 23:15:08 osmc systemd[1]: mediacenter.service: Failed with result ‘exit-code’.

And here is the log (grabs-logs -A).

Anyone has any idea what happened and/or how can I fix it?

It could be a failing SD card.

I suggest you try to reinstall the mediacenter package from the command line:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall rbp2-mediacenter-osmc

then reboot.

I also noticed this:

Do you have an SSH port open on your router?

sudo apt-get update does this:

I don’t have a SSH port opened on my router. I’m only forwarding the 443 port for the NexctCloud.
What does this log entry mean?

Run these commands:

sudo rm -r /var/lib/apt/lists/*
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall rbp2-mediacenter-osmc

Depending on your Internet speed, the update step might take a while.

It still lools like the SD card might be failing.

Thanks - that did it, it works now.

Any way I can check the SD card, just in case?
