Hello, I don't know if anyone else is having this problem, after downloading the latest Stellarmate OS system and running the software updater, it's hanging on 99% then it comes back saying, internet has timed out. Then I get a firmware error saying the firmware is not on the SD card. Is it a problem with the latest update? I'm using the 64bit version. Thanks in advance.

I had the same error.
I have checked the sd and the boot partition does not contain the files.
If you copy the boot partition from another SD, it will boot.

I've been having the same issue on my RPi4 4Gb. I've also tried running from USB but as soon as I try to update I get the same issue.

Hi,

i got the same error too, with Stellarmate 64bits. I've been able to boot again by copying the files from boot partition of another sd card, but there are some side effect, like no more VNC server, no wifi driver loaded

I have been using stellarmate for a while now and I really love the features it has, still learning as I go. The past few updates has really made the 64bit version feel much more solid. The boys have really done a very good job, congrats to them. But this last update seems to be a glitch of somekind. So now I have to make a backup sd card to install the stellarmate OS on, then run the updates on the backup card to see if it works. Seems to be the safest method I can think of for now.

Thanks for the input folks. I've followed the previous suggestions and found if I copy the complete contents of a working BOOT to a safe place then copy these files including the Overlays folder to the failed update SD card BOOT partition it works. Up and running again.

Could this be specific to the interface you are using? I just 9last night) updated my 64 bit StellarMate OS install, but I did it from the command line using sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade.
I had no issues even with a reboot.

Hi, great news, i tried again to turn on Stellarmate on the same SD card with copied files in Boot partition, and it runs perfectly. VNC server and wifi are back.
I can't figure out why there was no VNC server before, but the issue is solved for my side.

I have always used the software updater app on the SM desktop or from the SM app. I have never had an issue until now and its only occurring on the 64bit ver. the 32bit works fine.

That's good to hear you got it working again, but can you still update without getting an error?

I found out the update is applied, as i've got the version 3.6.0 compiled on 2022-08-18T23:57:20.
sudo apt-get update && upgrade just tells everyhing is up to date, and without any error.

Sorry to hear it does not work for you
