Failed to eject media warning

New here and new to Linux / Terminal so please be gentle.


I've installed Armbian (Armbian_20.11.6_Rockpro64_focal_current_5.9.14_desktop.img) on my RockPro64... liking it so far.


Issue I have is I cannot eject media from the File Manager GUI. This applies to USB thumb drives and also CDR/DVD drive. Error message reads as follows:


Failed to eject “15 GB Volume”.

Error ejecting /dev/sda: Error spawning command-line ‘eject’/dev/sda”: Failed to execute child process “eject” (No such file or directory) (g-exec-error-quark, 8).


Incidently I have a vague memory of this being an issue when I tested Armbian on a Rock64 board at some point in the past.


Any help greatfully received.
