Description: 

 

The problem happened again when I upgraded from 6.3.3 to 6.3.4

 

How to reproduce: 

 

  • Copy all files from previous testing version of the system to new USB stick
  • Re-initialize make boot
  • Start system
  • Add new license key
  • Check for updates in Plugins section
  • Install latest unRAID Server OS 6.3.4

 

Expected results: 

 

  • System upgrades without any major issues.

 

Actual results: 

 

  • VM section in the main menu disappeared. The menu item was not present, however, I was able to visit the page directly via URL.
  • All shared folders which most of them was private or secured for a specific user become public
    • I was unable to change it back. Each time I did the change and save the previous public setting appeared.
  • The plugins section lack the all installed plugins.
  • After the restart system won't boot (tested just once)
    • Failed to load ldlinux.c32
      Boot failed: please change disk and press a key to continue.

Those directory bread errors indicate a problem with the flash drive, try a different port, USB2 usually works better than USB3, but if they continue replace flash drive.

Probably your root cause of everything is that your flash drive has managed to either corrupt itself or wound up dropping offline.  (Those "directory bread" errors)

Hi guys,

 

Thanks for the fast response!

 

I did not understand the "previous settings" advice from the  @bonienl

Thank you anyway.

so I tried the advice from the @johnnie.black & @Squid

 

And it seems that USB3 was the problem!

I was able to upgrade the system to the latest version and running system without any problems so far.

 

I wanted to use UBB3 in good faith for better speed: UBB3 port + UBB3 drive, but it is clear now, that is it not well supported.

I am now using USB3 drive in the USB2 port.

 

Thank you very much for the help!

Not much point, since the USB is only used to initially boot up the system.  After that, its really only used if/when you change a setting.  But the problems are also stem from a combination of factors:  stick, USB controller, motherboard.  IE:  USB3 works perfectly for most, USB2 doesn't work for some, etc....
