FIX FOR PIAWARE SD CARD IMAGE
Above post is applicable if your install had dump1090-mutability.
For my Piaware SD Card image with dump1090-fa, I noted following after auto upgrade to fr24feed ver 1.0.19-2 and version 1.0.19-5:
- There was no problem of "Ajax call failed. The Skyview map displayed OK.
- The page ip-of-pi:8754 and ip-of-pi:8754/settings.html will not load sayaing “Problem loading page. Unable to connect”.
- status of fr24feed is failed:
[FAIL] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process ... failed!
pi@piaware:~$ sudo systemctl status fr24feed
● fr24feed.service - Flightradar24 Decoder & Feeder
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/fr24feed.service; disabled)
Active: inactive (dead)
Fix 1 of 2
Open file /etc/rc.local for editing
pi@piaware:~$ sudo nano /etc/rc.local
sudo systemctl restart fr24feed above last single-worded line (i.e. above exit0)
The file will become like this:
# By default this script does nothing.
sudo systemctl restart fr24feed
Save file (Ctrl+o) and close file (Ctrl+x)
- After reboot, check status
[ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
[ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2018-01-20 20:04:36.
[ ok ] FR24 Link: connected [TCP].

Fix 2 of 2
The page ip-of-pi:8754 and ip-of-pi:8754/settings.html will start displaying after Fix 1, but from settings page, the “Save” and “Restart” buttons are missing, and instead there is a remark “Config file is open in read-only mode and cannot be modified from within the application.”
Give following command, then reboot.
sudo chmod a+rw /etc/fr24feed.ini
After reboot load page ip-of-pi:8754/settings.html and you will see the “Save” and “Restart” buttons.
If these buttons still dont appear, clear browser cache (Ctrl+Shift+Delete) and Reload Browser (Ctrl+F5).
