Update Problem [fixed in v1.332]

edited September 2019 in Problems Now Fixed
since two days I get an error when trying to update my Kiwi:

It says not connected, but it is. My Kiwi can be accessed from internet, it works without any issues.

Any idea what can be done to solve this?




  • Same problem here, and it stopped to decode wspr.
  • Please install the latest version of the antenna switch extension.
  • Ooook is there a thread about how to do?
  • You may need to uninstall it first

    You may also need to manually delete the switch extension directories before reinstalling, otherwise it thinks it's already installed and the process will not complete.

  • Yes, there seems to be a different bug in older versions of the antenna switch extension that prevents rebuilds.
    To update and rebuild follow these instructions:
    mst    [stop Kiwi server]
    m git    [make sure Kiwi software is updated]
    rm -rf extensions    [remove old extensions build directory]
    cd ~/KiwiSDR-antenna-switch-extension
    gup    [update ant switch from github]
    bash ant-switch-extension-installer    [rebuild ant switch and Kiwi software]
    [Kiwi server should now be running]
    I was able to do this from an old (March 2018) version of the antenna switch without any problems.
  • Thanks for the help!
    However, I decided to give the Kiwi a fresh installation from the scratch, which of course solved it. I also have the antenna switch running, so this might have been the reason.

    It would be nice to get any information when some extensions do have or require a new version. Could this be included into update check, at least to get a message about new versions of installed extensions?

    v1.332 has a fix that should work for any Kiwi "stuck" on v1.329 due to the first antenna switch extension issue. For those Kiwis stuck because of the second issue the manual intervention described above will be required. I have not found many Kiwis with this second problem.
