[SOLVED] Error installing wireguard

  • My FreedomBox is plugged into a home router
  • Purchased May 2019
  • Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye) and FreedomBox version 21.4.4.

I clicked to install wireguard and the plinth interfaces gives me this error message:

Error installing application: ‘gi.repository.NM’ object has no attribute 'SETTING_WIREGUARD_SETTING_NAME’

Can you recommend how to fix?
Thanks!

IIUC, if you have fully upgraded to Bullseye, you shoudn’t see this error. What is version of network-manager? RUn

dpkg -l network-manager

Thanks, Sunil. Here is output for # dpkg -l network-manager

The version of network-manager you have is from Debian 10 (Buster) instead of Debian 11 (Bullseye). Please try to run manual update from System → Updates.

Sunil, I ran System->Updates and then tried installing wireguard again, but same error. The output of dpkg -l network-manager is also the same as above.

I had difficulty with this upgrade, and did it manually. E.g., I made the changes to sources.list recommended here

Here is the installation log from my latest System->Updates:

Looks like a bunch of obsolete packages got removed but none were upgraded. Is your sources.list exactly like in that link? If not, could you please post yours?

Try:

apt install unattended-upgrades

Then try upgrade again.
Also run:

apt policy network-manager

and

apt dist-upgrade --dry-run

I double-checked the /etc/apt/sources.list file and it has the same lines as the linked example.

I ran apt install unattended-upgrades but afterwards, plinth doesn’t come back up and I get a " Service Unavailable" message on freedombox.local. I am still able to connect via SSH.

I then rebooted from the command line, but am still getting " Service Unavailable." However, I still have SSH available.

Without yet being able to run Plinth->System->Upgrade, I ran the commands suggested above. First,

apt policy network-manager

network-manager:
  Installed: 1.14.6-2+deb10u1
  Candidate: 1.30.0-2
  Version table:
     1.30.0-2 500
        500 http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye/main armhf Packages
 *** 1.14.6-2+deb10u1 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

and then, second, as follows. Do you recommend I run apt autoremove as given in the output from apt dist-upgrade --dry-run?

apt dist-upgrade --dry-run

NOTE: This is only a simulation!
      apt needs root privileges for real execution.
      Keep also in mind that locking is deactivated,
      so don't depend on the relevance to the real current situation!

Without yet being able to run Plinth->System->Upgrade, I ran the commands suggested above. First,

Somehow, the upgrade process didn’t complete yet. Looking at the list of packages that need to upgraded, I think it is safe if you manually run the upgrade process using apt. Run the following:

apt dist-upgrade

I then rebooted from the command line, but am still getting " Service Unavailable." However, I still have SSH available.

If after a dist-upgrade and a reboot. If things don’t resolve themselves, then collect the logs for why Plinth service is not starting:

journalctl -u plinth

We should be able to fix the problem using the logs.

I ran apt dist-upgrade (which seemed to complete normally) and then rebooted. Freedombox restarts and I know, for example, that Privoxy is running. Looks like syncthing is also up as is SSH.

However, still no response from plinth; still getting 503 Service Unavailable.

I ran journalctl -u plinth and here’s the tail end of the log:

This log shows that systemd explicitly stopped Plinth service (at 09:21:53) after it has been running for a while. I don’t know of a reason why it would do that. What happens if you run:

systemctl start plinth.service

Collect the journal again if it does not work.

When I run systemctl start plinth.service it immediately responds with

Failed to start plinth.service: Unit plinth.service is masked.

journalctl -u plinth doesn’t have any new entries.

Strange. Run this:

systemctl unmask plinth.service
systemctl enable plinth.service
systemctl start plinth.service

Here’s what I get:
# systemctl unmask plinth.service
Removed /etc/systemd/system/plinth.service.

# systemctl enable plinth.service
Failed to enable unit: Unit file plinth.service does not exist.

# systemctl start plinth.service
Failed to start plinth.service: Unit plinth.service not found.

That explains what happened. ‘freedombox’ package was removed during the upgrade process.

apt install freedombox

Indeed this brings Plinth back to life, It feels like I’m back in familiar territory.

I installed Wireguard and it is running so my original problem is now solved.

Sunil, thanks so much for your patience and assistance.
