"Could not connect to Onion Firmware Server!"

  • I am unable to update my firmware no matter how many times I try. It just cannot connect to the firmware server.

    *My internet connection is fine though.

    @pewpewlasers That's super odd!
    I've installed your exact firmware version on an Omega here at the office and it works as expected:

    root@Omega-267F:~# oupgrade -check
    > Device Firmware Version: 0.0.6 b266
    > Checking latest version online...
    > Repo Firmware Version: 0.1.3 b328
    > Comparing version numbers
    > New firmware version available, need to upgrade device firmware

    Can you please try again? If it still doesn't work, we'll go about manually updating the firmware.

  • @Lazar-Demin sorry for the late response. It still doesn't work not matter how many times I have tried. How do I upgrade manually?

  • administrators

    @pewpewlasers ok, let's do it manually then.
    Connect to your Omega via SSH or serial:

    cd /tmp
    wget http://repo.onion.io/omega/images/omega-v0.1.4-b330.bin

    When the download completes, run:

    sysupgrade omega-v0.1.4-b330.bin

    The Omega will start the update process and will reboot.
    Make sure to not reset or unplug it during the update process!

    Let me know how it goes!

  • @Lazar-Demin I had exactly the same issue with one omega which I did not upgraded for a while. It was firmware 0.0.4.

    wget and sysupgrade worked without problem.

  • It's been some time since I've played with my Omegas. I too was having this exact issue. Doing it manually using Lazar's steps solved this problem.

  • @Lazar-Demin Thank you for helping. I've tried this as well however. I get the following response:
    wget: unable to resolve host address 'repo.onion.io'
