Mark1 hangs on Yellow eyes


#1

If queried, regardless of what is asked, it replies that it is still booting up. Nothing happens after waiting and sever reboots resulted in the same behavior.

I did an apt-get update and upgrade, looks like that went as expected (no errors)

Rebooted several times, same hang at yellow eyes.

It appears I am hanging on the loading of skills.

I tried a reset and have not been able to get past the yellow eyes.

Hoping this can be of some use debugging the issue:

Hi @adamc1999
Sorry to hear you’re having some trouble with your Mark 1.

Another user had trouble with .git/config being locked and they found that it was because they’d used sudo for a previous apt-get upgrade causing some files to be owned by root. The original thread is here

Could you have a look at the output of find /opt/mycroft/skills -group root?
This will list any files within the skills directory that are owned by a member of the root user group. Ideally it shouldn’t list anything.
