Attempted Jessie to Stretch, failed, likely dead on reboot.

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I tried to update jessie dismally, here:

https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9984-apt-get-update-pointing-to-404-not-found-ip-151101240204-80/?do=findComment&comment=79685

 

Since then, I have been attempting to update to strech, I feel like I got close, but it's failed and I strongly suspect, my next reboot will hose it.

(I will not reboot it, linux is wondeful!!)

 

I updated my sources.list file to have the following 4 values.

deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian stretch main contrib non-free
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian stretch-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free
 

 

the apt-get update and apt-get upgrade (appear) to be working fine.

apt-get dist-upgrade will spit out the following:

Errors were encountered while processing:
 network-manager
 initramfs-tools
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Upon further investigation I have done the following tips in this post precisely

http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?p=122113#p122113

These have failed, it outright refuses to get network-manager on there.

Job for NetworkManager.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status NetworkManager.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

journalctl -xe will produce the following:

May 25 15:33:28 orangepizero systemd[17220]: NetworkManager.service: Failed at step NAMESPACE spawning /usr/sbin/NetworkManager: Bad file descriptor
-- Subject: Process /usr/sbin/NetworkManager could not be executed

 

When I begin to google that information I start reaching even less google hits and possibly even a bug?

https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GCEA_enAU767AU767&ei=K9ToXI64A6LYz7sPvr2qwAE&q="NetworkManager.service"+"bad+file+descripor"&oq="NetworkManager.service"+"bad+file+descripor"&gs_l=psy-ab.3..33i160l2.9570.14812..14992...3.0..0.276.4626.0j13j10......0....1..gws-wiz.......0j0i22i30j33i21.bL0kzS4p6yg

 

Finally, when I log in to the system remotely it even says :
 

"ARMBIAN 5.73 stable Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 3.4.113-sun8i"
"Kernel was updated, please reboot "

 

 

However, I feel this is very unwise, until I can be certain that the update and upgrades and clean and autoremove and all the commands to maintain the system at least spit back results indicating success.

One last reply:  here's the full output of the 2 main large errors, sorry quite large:

As much as I wish i was a lot smarter and had more time - I will not attempt "takeover.sh" which sounds like a super cool way of rescuing a hosed system.   - Complicated and powerful but not something even close to my skillset, super cool though!

Also this after running

apt-get remove --purge network-manager
