OTA update won’t work on my rPi 3B on Volumio 3

Hello everyone,

I got a problem with my upgraded version of Volumio on my raspberry Pi 3B. I upgraded from Volumio 2 to Volumio 3(.175). Since the upgrade I can’t do any OTA updates. There is always the message “please wait” and then nothing happened. I tried an optional DNS server but that won’t fix the problem. My rPi is connected through an internet cable. I hope someone can help me on this. I think it’s a bug.
Thank you in advance.


Hi Eldin. That’s odd. When you upgraded from v2 was it an OTA or a fresh install? I had various network issues until I did a reflash on the SD card. Might help to send system logs Sending logs for troubleshooting - Volumio Documentation

i would try switching off all the plugins and try again… it worked for a other update problem.

Hello Simon,

Thankyou for your answer. First I tried the OTA update but that didn’t worked quite good so I did a fresh installation. I tried to make a sys log. I hope I did it right, this is what came out:

Does your current Volumio version function ok, apart from the inability to OTA update? If so, it would be useful for the devs to get a complete system log after you have tried to initiate an update. So, reboot and try to OTA update, and then follow the details in the following link (as already givem by @SimonE) to get a system log. (Your log above is not complete)

Would you share some system logs please?

A quick fix would probably be a reflash of the latest version, but that doesn’t help in catching the cause of your initial problem.
