New Error since update to 4.0

Hello.

I am running prostick Plus with SD CARD image on RP 3 - Since the most recent update I am seeing many cases of dump1090 failing. Here is the log

What do the dump1090-fa logs say? (journalctl -e -u dump1090-fa)

I think this may have come down to a loose connection. Although, nothing was actually “loose” I reseated everything and have not had an error since.

This is normal if after reboot or restart it occurs once or twice then stops. If it keeps repeating, then it needs to be investigated.
