Debian :: Dedi Server Don't Reboot After Wheezy / Jessie Upgrade
Jul 26, 2015
I have upgraded my debian server on april when Jessie came up, but I *forgot* to reboot at this time. As a new kernel* was released this week as a security update, and since my server installed it (via unattended-upgrade on security packages), I rebooted it last night. It never came back online.

I have access to a rescue boot (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS), and tried to analyse the failure (by mounting /sys /dev /proc and /boot and chrooting), but without luck so far.
As it's a dedicated server, I don't have access to the console. What I know :
No log in var/log since the failed reboot. I don't know how to have/find others logs.Previous kernel was 3.2.0-4-amd64, new is 3.16.0-4-amd64, What I tried without luck) :
Change the booting kernel, via update-grub. Tried 3.2, 3.2 with sysvinit and 3.16 rescue mode I think. I should have done it right, but without console it's hard to tell.apt-get update/apt-get upgrade/apt-get dist-upgradeadding nomodeset to kernel load in grubWhat I haven't tried :
update-initramfs, I don't really know why it would block the boot
I upgraded my Wheezy 7.8 to make sure all packages were installed Before taking the next step to upgrade to Jessie.I upgraded to Jessie and it seemed to run OK....but after reboot I had no network Connection..I checked ifconfig and the wrong network card mac address is being assigned to the wrong card....?I have a clonezilla server on my server, so this was my network interfaces before and after upgrade

I even checked nano /etc/resolv.conf and sure enough my gateway was the same for my Internet eth0.When I ran ifconfig I could see that the eth0 mac address was set as eth1..I tried to reset my drbl for clonezilla but that only sees the vmware Connection and not my actural cards.. have taken alook at /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and the assignment is right but not ifconfig?
With "quiet" removed from the grub linux line, I'm getting the following error messages when the boot hangs up early in the boot process (19.768231 seconds into boot).:

is it possible to simulate upgrading a Squeeze installation to a Wheezy or Jessie installation, on a OVH server ?I would like simulate upgrading server, and if not problems, upgrading in real time.I don't do that manipulation, and I don't do mistakes on a production server.

The screen then clears and an underscore is displayed as the sole character at the top left position of the screen. The system hangs at this point. During installation, I rejected two changed files: /etc/init.d/bootlogd and /etc/libreoffice/sofficerc. For both, I opted to keep the installed version (the default choice of the installer) rather than replacing with the new version. The first might be related to the problem, although it seems to be responsible only for logging the boot process, and I would not expect this to compromise booting.
In case this information is useful, sda1 is mounted at /, sda2 is swap space, sda3 is extended, and sda5 is a logical partition mounted at /home.
I am able to boot into rescue mode, but other than that the system is not usable. Unfortunately, no useful error messages are given to aid in diagnosing the problem.
I've changed my /etc/apt/sources.lst file to use "jessie" repositories instead of "wheezy". I then ran synaptic and updated everything (there were loads of packages, something like 2000 to update).

After this I rebooted. The grub menu shows as usual with the background image I'd set and the operating systems as usual (including Windows 7) however there is no longer a 5 second countdown and when I select *any* menu option, it asks for a username and password.
I don't know what username and password it's asking for as I never used to have one set!!! I did have a username and password set up so that if you wanted to edit a grub menu option so I tried that but to no avail.
I'm using MBR/BIOS not EFI.
I have done on previous releases, but this time it hangs on me. It's "only" a Virtualbox, so I can reproduce it.

The wheezy already runs systemd, and is fully updated to to latest packages. Does not run any graphical.
Edits the source.list and does
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get upgrade # Did on one upgrade
$ apt-get dist-upgrade
It starts to upgrade (complains about missing version in libpgp-error), libc is installed, but at some point the systemd is running at high CPU and a dpkg seems to be stalled.
Should I disable systemd on wheezy before? This might not have been tested so much.
Does upgrade from wheezy to jessie modify print drivers....

I've upgraded a server on our LAN from fully functioning Wheezy to Jessie. All seems fine except remote administering using Putty from my windows workstation when issuing reboot from command line, it goes down and reboots but stops at login prompt asking for username and password and does not come back on the LAN network. This server does not normally have a monitor or keyboard so my ability to remote admin this server in effect is disabled.

If I log on, it will come back on the LAN network. I've checked the logs but can't see any errors. Is it in the configuration of Jessie somewhere or perhaps a Grub issue. I have 5 other production Wheezy servers that I intend to update to Jessie once I understand how to deal with this problem.
Upgraded webserver to Jessie as an upgrade to Wheezy produced errors, and before reboot everything was up and running, but as all upgrade docs and info I read, I rebooted the server. However it never came back. I have the original backup files before I did the Wheezy upgrade. I also have access by Rescue to the server.Made a back up of critical files and have a 24GB tar file and I can connect by SFTP.

how to check the Debian files... Grub etc.. I would prefer to find the issue than start again.I am not able to sudo from Putty. I cannot run apt-get update. I did go to chroot, but then I get unable to resolve host errors and Could not open lock file because Permission denied errors and asking if I am root.There is information by googling for start up issues, but as I am working remotely with a Rescue set up, a lot of the commands I see and have tied do not work.
I've had a weird issue recently with Java/Spring. Basically, it would work on all machines but my trusty Debian box. Macs for devs, Ubuntu for production and some devs have it too. This annoyed me, because of course Debian is the greatest and it must work there too! Also, Java is based on the whole write once run anywhere concept, I have never really had a problem with code behaving differently on different Java installs of the same version, even on completely different OSs it seems to behave itself very well.

I moved up to Jessie and the problem goes away. I can only conclude that some library that is called by Java got upgraded, somehow influences the order in which Spring resolves its dependencies. Probably the fact that other devs build on Ubuntu and have got it working there, and the upgrade to Jessie brings my libs more in line with what Ubuntu will be running has done the trick.
I already have a Notebook with windows (for some reason it needs 3 partitions..) and wheezy. When I installed wheezy I create 2 logical partition inside a primary one: one logical for /home and the other one for filesystem. Now I would like to overwrite wheezy and get get jessie, but without touching windows and home.

Im running a dedicated game server for ArmA-II. There is a server.cfg file that directs the server to output to a log file all server events, such as game issues from clients and the server itself.The value in the server.cfg file looks like this: logfile="server.log";How do I set it up so that the dedicated server outputs this information, not only to the log, but also to my screen? Would this be done from the server.cfg file?

Before moving to Jessie I have upgraded the original Wheezy; after the upgrade the version was 7.8. Everything went well till I executed "apt-get dist-upgrade". Errors where generated. As suggested I tried the "apt-get -f install"; but it did not go smoothly either. However, so far, I am accessing the desktop and everything seems fine (although I did not do anything fancy yet). The version recorded is 8.0. Thus, should I worry about the error messages generated?
Please find the log file here: [URL] ......
Note that I put the log file on Google Drive because each time I clicked on "add file" in the "Upload Attachment" tab when editing this message I got:

I did an in-place upgrade to Jessie today and I can only get the GNOME Classic desktop, which I have to select when I log in. I had started to get used to the default desktop in Wheezy, so I'd like it back if possible. When I select gnome system default, I get my desktop, but no menus or anything I can click on at all. All I can do is ctrl-alt-delete and reboot or shutdown. I run it on a Lenovo Ideapad U410.

I am using a 3rd party kernel driver that does not support udev properly. When I was using wheezy I placed the required device files in /lib/udev/devices.

The udev in jessie does not appear to support this. Is there any way to have udev create these device files or will I have to create then using a script at boot-up?
I just installed wheezy and upgraded to jessie. I had previously gotten sound working in wheezy by installing the flashplugin-nonfree and flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound packages, after configuring my headset in system settings. However, now I can't get sound to play in firefox. I've installed flashplugin-nonfree, flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound, and pulseaudio, still without luck. The volume is turned all the way up in alsamixer, sound tests play fine, and I can play music in VLC without any problems. This leads me to believe it's not a problem with drivers, but with some package I'm missing that will allow firefox to play sound. Sound wasn't working in the default video player either, before I installed the flash plugin. Is there something I'm missing?

Also, sound doesn't play on Konqueror either (KDE browser), which seems to indicate it's a problem with flash and not with firefox itself. After removing the flash plugin and installing pepperflashplugin-nonfree to ensure the pepper plugin was used instead of flash, sound still would not play in chromium, so I reinstalled the flash plugin and still don't have sound in any browser.
Used to be, when I connected my phone and turned on USB Storage, it would automount, and I'd get a popup window asking me what I wanted to do (open and view files, or import photos with gthumb). I would just choose open and view files, move photos, music, etc. back and forth...

I would see the device listed in pcmanfm or thunar. Now, nothing happens. I do not get the popup, nor see the device in any file manager, etc. When I do fdisk -l, I do not see the phone listed, but when I do lsusb, I do see it.
Code: Select allBus 008 Device 067: ID 0482:0734 Kyocera Corp.
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
It's a Kyocera Hydro Elite, an android device, set for USB Mass Storage upon connection. The phone knows when it's been connected and gives me the option to turn on the mass storage, which used to trigger the popup on the computer, but the computer no longer responds.
I have thunar-volman and mtp-tools installed.
I don't seem to have any relevant entry in /etc/fstab. Not sure if I did before upgrading to jessie from wheezy or not... I don't believe so...don't think an upgrade would wipe anything from there.
Why I'm not getting access to the phone now? Or how I can mount it without knowing it's location from fdisk? I do not use gnome, but rather plain openbox.
I run Debian with Gnome on a beat up workhorse ThinkPad. I upgraded to Jessie last week with just one issue. Before the upgrade, I could plug in a USB drive (I use a couple of WD MyPassports most often) and they would mount, read, and write without a hitch.

Since the upgrade, when I plug in a USB drive, the file manager (3.14.1) sees the drive, but when I click on the drive to access/mount it, I receive a dialog box reading: Oops! Something went wrong. Unhandled error message: Error when getting information for file '/media/user/MyPassport1': Input/output error.
If I hit the little “eject” button in the file manager, then mount the drive as root from a command prompt [e.g., mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/external] I can run a directory of the drive, but ls -l /media/external fails. From the command prompt I am unable to perform reads or writes to the drive.
Rebooting into recovery mode (i.e., without Gnome), I get the same behavior with CLI messages reporting I/O errors with the drive. I can run a directory, but ls -l, reads, and writes fail.
This behavior is the same on all three USB ports. It is not limited to these MyPassport devices.
The drives work flawlessly on another headless machine upgraded to Jessie the same day. And on another still running Wheezy.
If I boot the ThinkPad from a live CD (Mint 14, I believe) the USB drives mount, read, and write fine.
My BIOS is up to date, 1.52.

.. with various parameters, nothing works. The laptop seems to power off, but after a sec it restarts/reboots. I've Googled high and low, but there's very little on this topic. Maybe it is specific to the current kernel in Wheezy? I'm not suspecting a harware failure, since this was not happening with Windows installed.
This happens on me with Wheezy on a HP Elitebook 8530w.
I have installed no updates and made no changes to configuration in any way. Computer has been left on for some time. Finally rebooted to clear any caches. When it came up again the system does not recognise the monitor. So I get the default resolution. Not hardware as a windows install comes up fine.

Using Wheezy with MATE
Running on Haswell
Installed backport to stop crash on exit 3.13-0.bpo.1-amd64
I have tried several versions of live CD. These all give the same symptom - which is why I tried the windows install. So I suspect this is something to do with recognising the onboard graphics in Haswell.
I have googled and found, however, means using a shell script. This seems rather drastic and I don't want to go that way unless there is no other possiblity of a solution. In that post the output of xrandr is posted so doing the same here.

I created a script myshutdown.sh in /etc/init.d/ to shutdown rTorrent if the reboot or shutdown now -h command was executed.
#rTorrent Shutdown Script
echo "Shutting down rTorrent!"
kill -2 `pidof rtorrent`
I set the file as executable.
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/myshutdown.sh
I inserted a symlink in the rc0.d directory with the process order K04.
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/myshutdown.sh /etc/rc0.d/K04myshutdown.sh
I also inserted a symlink in the rc6.d directory with the process order K04.
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/myshutdown.sh /etc/rc6.d/K04myshutdown.sh
Apparently rc0.d is for shutdown and rc6.d if for reboot
After reboot it appears that rtorrent does not run (I cannot connect to rtorrent via rutorrent) but really what is going on. I am trying to do this because rtorrent does a hash check on all files if it is not shutdown properly. I just want it to shutdown automatically and safely, before the system shuts down.

Was running Mint. But after taking an update a few weeks ago the network stopped working. After a lot of time and effort decided to give up on Mint and switch distros to Debian 8 Jessie.
But after changing the Network settings from default DHCP to my usual IPV4 static 10.net configuration and rebooting the network will not work.
I have several systems on a 10.100.0.0/16 LAN behind another Linux system acting as firewall/gateway.
Now, after about 7 hours of mining the Internet, I still can't get basic networking to work:
- Have tried a few combinations, with and without Network Manager and eth0 in interfaces
- /etc/network/interfaces is configured with a static IP and relevant parameters
- ifconfig shows eth0 and the correct information
- netstat -rn shows the basic default route to the gateway
- have tried with IPV6 enabled and disabled; it is not used on my LAN
The box is a desktop system, ASUS Maximum VI Formula mobo with onboard Ethernet, dual GTX 780 cards. Nothing very weird.
It all LOOKS right, but ping can't get off the box "destination unreachable", and no other system on the LAN can ping it.
I'm amazed a basic static IPV4 network setup completely breaks it. This is my main workstation - a dual-boot system where Windows runs fine - so it's not hardware.
EDIT: This has been solved. See the solution post: [URL]
I got "stuck" with stable up to now and want to upgrade to Wheezy. But, although I've done this before, I'm having a dependency problem I wanted to ask about before breaking my system somehow. This is the /etc/apt/sources.list, ready for Wheezy:

So, I regularly use aptitude as my package manager. After updating the database with aptitude update, trying aptitude full-upgrade gives me a huge of conflicts.
But, if I use apt-get dist-upgrade, I get no conflicts. if I dist-upgrade with apt-get, will that affect my daily usage of aptitude (which I prefer)? I know APT is a single database and apt-get and aptitude are just different interfaces, but I guess differences might rise when marking packages as automatically or manually installed.
