Last Friday (July 19th) I did
sudo apt-get update and
sudo apt-get upgrade, then I shut it down. Today, I tried to power it up, but nothing appears on my screen. My HDMI cable is working properly, so it's an issue with how it's booting.
Raspbian is installed on a external SSD, and has worked fine until now. The SSD seems to be ok (I can view its contents).
I would very much appreciate any solutions, or even suggestions.
The red light is on, and the green light blinks intermittently. Power is being supplied to the USB SSD.
I believe the problem is that the Pi no longer tries (?) to boot from the SSD, is there a way to test if it does try to do so?
If that's not the case, then it tries to boot but something goes wrong? Why don't I see anything?
I haven't ran
sudo apt-get updateand
sudo apt-get upgradein a while, before running it on Friday. Perhaps this had something to do with it?
The contents of
/boot are corrupt. I tried booting with the
/boot of a backup, and it works -- with tremendous errors as the Kernel used is out-of-date and it says "Failed to start Load Kernel Modules" before checking my SSD ("0-100% Complete..." -- for what, I don't know.) Once it loads (with the old /boot), the keyboard is unoperational (though it looks fine).
Clearly using the old
/boot is not the solution, but at least I now know that my problem is in
Perhaps using the old
/boot is the solution, if nothing else can work. However, when I use the old
/boot, my keyboard doesn't work and I get
[FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules. I believe the cause of this is different kernels. How do I fix this, or, is there a fix without using the old
Would people please give me a zip or a tarball of a recent
/boot? To do this, you could
cd /boot then
tar -cvzf boot.tar.gz *.*; upload
boot.tar.gz online (for example, use Dropbox or Google Drive). I would like a couple, so that at least one should work.
