Been fiddling with my Pi running FPP 2.x, and to confirm it is currently on v2.x-master-581-gcfe97eba. I tried to perform a manual update on the device a few times, through the FPP About page, but kept encountering a fatal error:
Just FYI, I just tried it on a Pi 3B+ and went from 581 to 582 with no errors.
FPP Version:v2.x-master-582-g6ef7b300
FPP OS Build:v2.0alpha
OS Version:Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)
Kernel Version:4.14.26-v7+

What is your Kernel Version?   Possibly you started with an older v2.x image build or possibly using different Pi hardware?


Edit:
Also worked on a BBB with no errors
FPP Version:v2.x-master-582-g6ef7b300
FPP OS Build:v2.0alpha
OS Version:Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)
Kernel Version:4.14.13-ti-r25
xLights and Vixen3 for sequencing / FPP for scheduling and playing / Falcon controllers for pixels / homemade controllers for everything else

You're the second person that has mentioned that issue.   It looks like a config update didn't work at one point.   From the command line, can you do:


cat /etc/fpp/config_version


and let me know what it says?   Then do 'echo 29 | sudo tee /etc/fpp/config_version' and then redo the manual update and see if that helps.    In the update to config_version 32, it should have install the required dependencies.   For some reason, it looks like it didn't on yours, but I have no idea why that would happen.

Version Info
FPP Version:v2.x-master-582-g6ef7b300
FPP OS Build:v2.0alpha
OS Version:Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)
Kernel Version:4.14.26-v7+
I believe it is the same version I started with in 2.x. I downloaded the latest image from the site, the one labelled FPP-v2.0-Alpha-Pi-20180315.zip.

I'm using a regular Pi 3, as well. Is 582 the latest version? I am still having problems with making FPPD start, whichever version this is.


UPDATE:

cat /etc/fpp/config_version
32


I'm trying the manual update now, just did the second command... Stand by.

The manual update still failed. At the end, I saw the same failure as before. Attached is a pic of the start, as well as the .txt of the full log.

Looks like something has corrupted the apt-get/dpkg database.   Can you run the command mentioned in the update log ( sudo dpkg --configure -a ) , reset to config version 29 again, and redo the manual update?

That seemed to bear some fruit there, Dan. It's in the process of updating right now, but it still seems like it has gotten past the hurdles already. Thanks!

Okay, yes, the update was successful. It still shows its running 582, so I assume that is the latest version. The upshot, though: FPPD is working, and it is playing sequences without any apparent issue, now. Thanks again, O Linux Master! :)
