Airplay was working without any problems, but after upgrading to 2.692 from 2.673 using the web interface I lost it. It seems that the upgrade stopped airplay service from starting after boot, as
ps aux | grep airport
returns nothing and executing
fixes the problem.
I could not find any logs:
$ systemctl status shairport-sync --full ● shairport-sync.service - Shairport Sync - AirPlay Audio Receiver Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/shairport-sync.service; static) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2019-12-22 07:56:55 UTC; 6min ago Process: 1365 ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/shairport-sync --configfile=/tmp/shairport-sync.conf (code=exited, status=217/USER) Main PID: 1365 (code=exited, status=217/USER) Dec 22 07:56:55 my-volumio systemd: Starting Shairport Sync - AirPlay Audio Receiver...

Seems to be the same problem as reported in Shairport fail, Volumio 2.163, RSP2, HifiberryDIGI+ from May 2017 (???).
