I’m going to use this instead of a new thread. I followed the upgrade (apt, reboot, satnogs-setup). The satnogs-setup shows 0.9 in the setup of it- so it is updated. However the station dash says it is still on 0.8. I can’t find anywhere in the local logs or local interface that show the version number, but by exploring I see 0.9 and such:
$ ls -al /var/lib/satnogs/lib/python2.7/site-packages | grep satnogsclient
drwxr-xr-x 6 satnogs satnogs 4096 Feb 20 21:49 satnogsclient
drwxr-xr-x 2 satnogs satnogs 4096 Feb 20 21:49 satnogsclient-0.9.dist-info
Is this just a lag on the station dashboard? Is there a version indicator I can see in my local dash?
Hi. I followed the upgrade instructions to the letter. However, my client wouldn’t start. Systemd ran in an apparently endless loop restartíng the satnogs client and each and every attempt ended with the sad message:
Exception: SATNOGS_STATION_ID not configured.
At closer inspection it turned out that /etc/default/satnogs-client was empty.
Luckily I had a backup of the file (I have been in this business too long not have backups!) so now my ground station is up and running again.
I just thought I would bring this to your attention, so you can update the upgrade instruction to include this issue.
I am sure that I did not select Reset Configuration during update. The configuration was indeed absent or empty. I can’t tell, because I manually entered my station ID when I saw the error message. Been there before. The file migth even have been absent before I started the update. You never know with software
Anyway, let’s just put this aside as an odd happening.
