My Satnogs station go to wrong


I upgraded my station Linux Debian 10.
The upgrade finished well.

I want to upgrade the Satnogs client Ansimble but I got a warning and error messages
When I ran the system update I got this message

Starting Ansible Pull at 2023-11-19 09:35:58
/usr/bin/ansible-pull -d /root/.satnogs/ansible -U -o -t satnogs-setup local.yml -C stable
[WARNING]: Could not match supplied host pattern, ignoring: satnogsclient

“changed”: false,
“remote_url_changed”: false
Repository has not changed, quitting.

Then I pressed the Apply in the setup I got this error

ERROR! couldn’t resolve module/action ‘ansible.posix.mount’. This often indicates a misspelling, missing collection, or incorrect module path.

The error appears to be in ‘/root/.satnogs/ansible/roles/satnogs_client/tasks/main.yml’: line 138, column 3, but may
be elsewhere in the file depending on the exact syntax problem.

The offending line appears to be:

- Restart satnogs-client service
  • name: Use tmpfs for state directory
    ^ here

Thank you any advice

Good morning Tony,

Just to be sure if I understand what you are trying to achieve.
You where running Debian 10 (buster) and want to update to Debian 11 (bullseye) and get your SatNOGS station to this Debian 11 release?

If this is the case, there is no update, you need to reinstall the station.

Update instructions
Do not attempt to Update through satnogs-setup; it will render it useless!!!

Let me know if this is indeed the case, then maybe I can help you to make this as smooth as possible.

Hi Jan,

No. I just ran the normal update on my Satnogs client from the Satnogs setup.
And after I got those messages.

I don’t want to upgrade Linux 11 I’m happy with version 10.

The latest SatNOGS version isn’t supported on Debian 10, I guess you are running into that problem.

What version is good?

The latest stable SatNOGS client need Debian 11 (bullseye).

I know it needs some updating, but maybe this can help you

Thank you :frowning:

I will install a Debian 10 system and see what happens if I try to install the satnogs client via the ansible option.

Don’t spend time. My system was running with Deb 10 two years ago. I upgrading my Linux to 11.
I will see…

Hi Tony,

I wanted to know what was happening, so I did install a Debian 10 VM.

It all comes down to ansible and the lack of the right version, even after switching to the ansible repository we still are left with version 2.9.27 and we need at least 2.12.

So that is the reason why your update on Debian 10 was failing.

With Debian 11 you will be able to fulfill this dependency.
