**What is the problem?**RPI cannot find serial port after upgrade 1.8.1
What did you already try to solve it? Looked for solution in Community
Logs (syslog, dmesg, ... no logs, no support)

My RPI 3b+is connected through wifi to my network, and was working flawlessly on Octoprint 1.7.3. I decide to upgrade to 1.8.1 and now it will not connect to the printer. It keeps saying that it cannot find the serial port. The funny thing is that I can still see the print through the webcam. Just for whatever reason, it will not connect to the printer. Luckily, I rarely use Octoprint to print anyway, I primarily use it to watch the prints. However, I do like knowing the CPU temp etc . Any responses will have to VERY basic in terminology because I'm not very computer literate. I was surprised I even got this thing to work the first time.
I have exactky the same problem. Working fine before the upgrade to 1.8.1. It was driving me nuts trying to find an answer. Nothing works, plenty of advice to shh into your device and dmesg command. Looking at the information by this action it totally wiped out the tty which identifies the serial port.
This is obviously a software problem as many people are reporting the same fault once upgrade. Is there a way to put this to Octiprint admins as a focus?
Looking at your log in your own post your OS version is one that came with OctoPrint 1.8.1 to start with, not been upgraded from anything previously. Did you make a fresh install instead of upgrading in the UI?
Try and SSH into the Pi and run dmesg -w, plug in the printer and you should see new output relating to the new USB device, or some errors. If there is no reaction, then either the cable, printer or USB port is not working. You can try with other USB devices and cables to find a working combination.
Charlie definitely the RPi as i have tried 3 new serial cables today and none work. I linked the printer through pronterface and the serial port works on port 115200 on my Mac and it recognises the printer. I can home it with pronterface. i have ssh dmesg -w into the RPi and this issue what i get back:
Thx brother. A recommendation I got on another board was to simply change the USB port on the Pi. I did, and it worked. Damned if I know why that would matter when the connection was intact just seconds before the update........but, it did. THX for the help.
