[SOLVED] openHABian stuck on ssh connection

Hello Community,
after I read the announcement from @ThomDietrich I followed the his guided steps.

Before I updated via openhabian-config I got the normal ssh startup screen like this

But now the whole top part with is Missing.

I have to press ctrl+c

I know this seems like a minor issue, but I use Emacs to edit my files via tramp mode, but now It gets stuck because of this. Also I would like to get this back it was very useful sometimes.

That’s not normal! We should be able to fix this. When did you last update openHABian? Before trying anything else, could you please go through these steps and see if it changes anything:

  1. Update
  2. Upgrade
  3. Basic Setup
  4. Samba
  5. frontail (while you are at it, you might like this)
  6. Basic Setup

After this it should work.

Never updated via openhabian-config allways used apt-get update and apt-get upgrade etc.
I will try these steps and will call back.

Tryed theese steps. Sadly it did not help. The display message comes from FireMotD if I understood the logs right.

When running /opt/FireMotD manual I got this message.
sudo ./FireMotD -U
[sudo] password for openhabian:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run ‘sudo dpkg --configure -a’ to correct the problem.

Okay good/bad to know I am not the only one :slight_smile: Thanks for your work. Should I open a Github Issue?

It’s definitely related to https://github.com/willemdh/FireMotD/commit/b3e92aa2fab44928b534b6e9aced1c6a6b69ba9b

Looking into it now

Hi I have the same problem, do you have a recomendation?

For now just press Ctrl+C to ignore the issue. I’ve contacted the developer and hope he will respond quickly on the bug.

Maybe one should have the promting of upgrading removed untill there is a working solution that works.

I’m expecting this to be fixed in the next few hours.

@BrutalBirdie, @Moellegaard and everyone else affected by this, I’ve implemented a fix on the openHABian side. Please execute “Basic Setup” from the menu to get a working version of FireMotD.


Can confirm this is working again. Thanks @ThomDietrich for this quick fix.
