Update for January failed


#1

For the third update in a row, my update is failing.
[Last failed update; first failed update.]

After each of the last two updates, I had to reformat from scratch, and the error would still persist. Both times “hardware corruption” was suggested, but there was no evidence of it in the logs.

Your sources.list isn’t standard. This is likely causing the problem.

That was the source list I was given during to fix the last failed update:


#4

What is the output of apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade?


#5

The system journal is massively spammed by this message:

Feb 05 02:34:56 Oswin kernel: [amlogic] ##### cec write error! #####
Feb 05 02:34:56 Oswin kernel: [amlogic_cec] amlogic_cec_irq_handler(): cec msg status: rx: 0x0; tx: 0x3

which occurs almost 26,000 times in the log. (Doubless more occurred since the syslog has been totally cleared of all startup information.)

The last recorded update in the APT log is for 2018-01-19. @LexPendragon did you once again have the same hash sum errors as in the previous post?

You can see the output in my last post to Sam.


#8

So it looks like you were getting hash sum errors when the connection is unencrypted and now you’re getting decryption errors when encrypted.

Let’s throw a few commands around and see what comes out of the woodwork, if anything. If nothing throws up an error you can Ctrl-C them after a few seconds.

openssl s_client --connect ftp.fau.de:443
wget https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/v/vero2-mediacenter-osmc/vero2-mediacenter-osmc_17.6.0-22_armhf.deb -O /dev/null
curl https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/v/vero2-mediacenter-osmc/vero2-mediacenter-osmc_17.6.0-22_armhf.deb > /dev/null

Since the error refers to GnuTLS, you’ll need to install one package to try this one:

sudo apt-get install gnutls-bin
gnutls-cli -d 1 -p 443 ftp.fau.de

Update: You are getting a very large number of dropped RX packets on your eth0 interface:

eth0: flags=-28605<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,DYNAMIC>  mtu 1500
        inet 192.168.23.16  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 192.168.23.255

        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0
        device interrupt 40  

It might not be the source of your problems but it’s worth noting.

wget gave me this error four times, but eventually completed:

2018-02-05 15:00:38 (3.12 MB/s) - Read error at byte 21069824/39875910 (Decryption has failed.). Retrying.

The last command started out this way:
root@Oswin:/home/osmc# curl https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/v/vero2-mediacenter-osmc/vero2-mediacenter-osmc_17.6.0-22_armhf.deb

And then seems to go off to a lot of binary.

You missed off the > /dev/null part. :wink:

#13

The curl and wget have problems. What about the other two commands?

I’m beginning to suspect something on your network, eg router. Is the router supplied by Comcast?

What does ifconfig eth0 show now?

(I just rebooted because of a lock-up.)

The network is entirely mine: OSMC device to a Unifi In-Wall WAP, to a dumb TP-LINK Gigabit Switch to the Unifi EdgeMax Router, to the Surfboard SB6190 cable modem. Also, there are four other Linux systems on the network that have no trouble getting updates. (Though they are all OpenSUSE.)

To test the network a bit more, I tried the command from one of the other systems:
alexius@Quicksilver:~> curl https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/v/vero2-mediacenter-osmc/vero2-mediacenter-osmc_17.6.0-22_armhf.deb > /dev/null

100 38.0M 100 38.0M 0 0 4847k 0 0:00:08 0:00:08 --:–:-- 6302k

And then tried a different port for the OSMC:
root@Oswin:/home/osmc# curl https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/v/vero2-mediacenter-osmc/vero2-mediacenter-osmc_17.6.0-22_armhf.deb > /dev/null

#15

Nice work. I’ll have to think about this one.

Just out of interest, does

curl --tlsv1.2 https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/v/vero2-mediacenter-osmc/vero2-mediacenter-osmc_17.6.0-22_armhf.deb > /dev/null

make a difference?

And what’s the RX dropped packet count now?


#16

That doesn’t seem to make a difference:
root@Oswin:/home/osmc# curl --tlsv1.2 https://ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/apt/pool/main/v/vero2-mediacenter-osmc/vero2-mediacenter-osmc_17.6.0-22_armhf.deb > /dev/null
% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed
9 38.0M 9 3744k 0 0 1285k 0 0:00:30 0:00:02 0:00:28 1284k
curl: (56) SSL read: error:1408F119:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_RECORD:decryption failed or bad record mac, errno 0

And the dropped packets (after I ran that command) is now at 2.


#17

Basic question: this Unifi In-Wall WAP has how many other devices connected to it by cable?

I assume it’s then connected by cable to the dumb switch and then onto the router, right?


#18

Your assumption is correct, but there are no other items connected by cable.

OSMC ----- WAP ------ TP-Link — Router — Cable Modem


#19

So all your OpenSUSE boxes hang off either the dumb switch or the router, right?

If so, what’s the chance of you getting a long cable and attaching the Vero to either the router or switch?


#20

Half of the OpenSUSE boxes are actually on WiFi (through the WAP that the OSMC box uses.)

I can take the WAP out of the middle and use the uplink to go straight to the OSMC device. Or I can plug my laptop into the other side of the WAP and test it that way. (Whichever I can get to first.) I can report back.
