I asked for help on this forum recently when I ran into the difficulty described here:
What happened then was that I tried to do an OTA upgrade and it failed because my system failed an `integrity check’ – manually edited files had been detected . I’m writing now to ask for some official
guidance about the extent to which and the ways in which we can modify our systems ourselves
without encountering such problems. The contexts for my request are these:
- Forum posts over the years are full of advice about how volumio installations can be modified by
individual users. How can we know which of these suggestions are safe and which are not?
- Closer to home: I installed the MiniDLNA plugin on one my volumio instances. It didn’t do what I hoped
it might and so I want to uninstall it. But the uninstall process fails with an error message
from systemd saying that the minidlna.service cannot be stopped. I suspect that I could solve this
problem via ssh, systemctl (and maybe apt --purge remove), but would doing that leave me
again with a system that can’t be upgraded?
These are for me really important issues so I hope you can supply some clarification. Thank you for all of your good work.
