Skyview after update to (unreleased testing version of) 3.7.2: "Refused to connect"

We’re already aware, this was picked up earlier in testing (and we’re halfway through testing a fix). Thanks.

No, there’s no mechanism for this, I don’t know how the -testing repository ended up installed in this case unless it was done manually. It’s not shipped with sdcard images and it shouldn’t be present on anything other than FlightAware test installs.

I am not a “tester,” nor do I know how to obtain any test code… Every couple of weeks, I simply run my standard commands to upgrade my Raspberry Pi:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo clean
sudo autoremove

and the 3.7.2 package came through… I was not ready for the upgrade. It messed up my Skyview, and @wiedehopf graciously helped me restore my map. I later ran the “built-in” FlightAware device command: “Upgrade and restart dump1090” and the above log entries indicated that 3.7.2 had already been installed. The upgrade to 3.7.2. was not normal as it indicated things about “dump978-fa” which I had never seen before.

Hm. None of that should have installed the test repository, and you are apparently the only install to see this.

How did you originally install the image / piaware and have you made any manual modifications other than what you listed above?

Also, can you run:

$ zgrep piaware /var/log/dpkg.log*
$ dpkg -l 'piaware*'

and paste the output?

I have made no manual modifications to the PiAware software since I installed it on the SD card. (The software for my Pi came from FlightAware.) I do routine updates and upgrades to my Raspberry Pi host. I also share my ADS-B data with other services using this Raspberry Pi, i.e., OpenSky Network, ADS-B Exchange, ADSBHub, etc.

What image did you start with - a Raspbian image (which version?) or a PiAware sdcard image (which version?)

Putting other services on the sdcard image definitely counts as manual changes. Can you think of anything unusual you did on around Feb 9, because that’s when it looks like the -testing repository first got installed:

That also looks like you re-installed piaware (not an upgrade, a reinstall of the same version) on that date, and also installed piaware-dbgsym at the same time which is highly unusual, that package is basically never installed ever and there are no dependencies involving it, so pretty sure that you (or a script that you ran…) did something strange on that date. You can maybe look at the surrounding entries in dpkg.log.7.gz to try to work out what was happening on that date. It almost smells like a script that decided to install all packages that start with piaware

At this stage it looks like the underlying cause is that you or a script you ran explicitly installed piaware-repository-testing on Feb 9. To fix this, please uninstall that package, and then downgrade your piaware to a non-testing version. Untested commands:

$ sudo apt-get remove --purge piaware-repository-testing
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall --allow-downgrade piaware-release=3.7.1

It does not look like a problem that affects anyone else as far as I can tell.

Feb. 9, 2019 is when I put my first PiAware system online. It’s been like that for 219 days. I’ve never had a problem until yesterday… but honestly it was my BEST day ever for total planes and positions reported!

sudo apt-get install --reinstall --allow-downgrade piaware-release=3.7.1

This command does not work:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get install --reinstall --allow-downgrade piaware-release=3.7.1
-bash: pi@raspberrypi:~: command not found
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ E: Command line option --allow-downgrade is not understood in combination with the other options
-bash: E:: command not found
pi@raspberrypi:~ $

Ok, well, I guess you’ll need to experiment a bit to work that out - maybe try dropping --allow-downgrade and see if it complains.

Failing that, please reimage and start again. I appreciate this is disruptive when you have other things installed as well (which is why I’m trying to suggest a non-destructive downgrade) but you are well into unsupported territory here; you did something strange to your system back in February, I don’t have an install that replicates your problem and I can’t give you any guarantees that your current system will continue to work when the real 3.7.2 comes out.

I’ll give it a try later in the week. It’s not hurting anything right now. I do appreciate your time. I certainly want to work the “non-destructive” route… Honestly, there was nothing strange done to my system in February 2019. That was my initial image of the PiAware software when I put the FlightAware receiver online. I follow instructions… I’m not much of an “experimenter” yet… I want to learn more about improving my ADS-B reception. It’s all part of the process… so thank you again for your assistance.

This is the best option.

You can probably (I haven’t tested this!) get it working like this:

  1. sudo apt-get install --reinstall piaware-release=3.7.1
  2. it’ll complain about broken dependencies and recommend --fix-broken. Ignore the recommendation. For each piaware/dump1090/etc 3.7.2 package it complains about, sudo apt-get remove that package.
  3. repeat step 1
