Need to clarify the python upgrade process using Octopi .17
What did you already try to solve it?
I have read the guidance out there on how to use the upgrade script but I am "newer" to linux and using these scripts. It is my understanding that I can do an "in place" upgrade to python using this script. I am not clear if I need to download python first and then install or if the script does it for me. If I need to download it first can someone assist with the way to do that?
Have you tried running in safe mode?
Did running in safe mode solve the problem?
You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!)
@Charlie_Powell would it maybe make sense to add --allow-releaseinfo-change right from the get go to that sudo apt update call in your script? I see a lot more people running into this particular problem thanks to the release switcheroo shenanigans in Raspbian.
I've prepped the change (see commit here) to run sudo apt-get update --allow-releaseinfo-change - I realised that somewhere along the line I forgot to add sudo apt-get update in there completely, though I'm sure it was there at some point.
I haven't yet had a chance to test it, and I'm not going to push the change without a few test runs first with so much traffic to the script at the moment... Going to do it (hopefully) this evening.
This worked on my two older pi images and updated them correctly. Stupid question but one of my instances has Octopi .18 vs .17. How to do get that to update. It says it is using Python 2 still from the pop-up in Octo-print.
OctoPi 0.18 shipped with Python 3, so unless something went terribly wrong there, it's running under Python 3 already. Could you maybe have mixed up instances? I definitely restricted the popup to Python 2 and cannot see it under my own Python 3 instances.
Could it be that this is a very early 0.18 flashed from a nightly image a long long time ago? Or did you modify it in any way since flashing? Because it certainly should not be shipping with Python 2.7. This is from a fresh OctoPi 0.18: octoprint-systeminfo-20211013171855.zip (786.8 KB)
Yeah the only 0.18-versioned images that shipped with Python 2 were early nightly builds. I've campaigned for a nightly version tag (like 0.18-nightly) to tell the difference before but got rejected...
You should be able to use the script to upgrade that image as well, as it is basically 0.17 with a different version number.
https://github.com/cp2004/Octoprint-Upgrade-To-Py3 has the details on that, but I think you've already used that on one of them - so you should be able to do the same thing again. I know it says 0.17 only, but it should allow 0.18 as well because of corner-cases like this.
