I just updated using apt-get dist-upgrade after SSHing on my Mark 1 as it was stuck on 0.8.17 since I received it.
After update and reboot, system is working, Mycroft is listening and speaking, but eyes and screen are both off and not working anymore.
How can I fix this?
Thanks for your help.
Hi @kalon33, thanks for flagging this with us. There are a couple of things to try here.
- Firstly, given you’re comfortable doing
apt-get on the command line, I’m going to assume you’re comfortable with log files. Can you please have a read through the
mycroft-update.log file at
/var/log and see if there are any errors?
- If so, try running
sudo apt-get update and identify if there are any other packages that need updating.
dist-upgrade will try and be smart and prioritize certain packages for update to resolve conflicts.
- Eyes and screen both being off indicate a possible LED display issue - if they were working previously it’s unlikely hardware failure, but more likely a dependency on which the display relies.
Please let us know how you go.
Hi @KathyReid, thanks for your help.
- Except these two warnings from dpkg, there’s nothing unusual for a apt-get log:
dpkg: warning: 'ldconfig' not found in PATH or not executable dpkg: warning: 'start-stop-daemon' not found in PATH or not executable dpkg: error: 2 expected programs not found in PATH or not executable Note: root's PATH should usually contain /usr/local/sbin, /usr/sbin and /sbin
- According to
apt-get, there’s no package to upgrade. Is there a specific package, config files or something for the display?
- What’s weird about this is that they were working perfectly just before running
apt-get dist-upgrade, eyes were still lit immediately after update, and a reboot switched them off, and they didn’t turn on (both screen and eyes) since.
@kalon33 OK, we’re going to try an update of the Mark 1 package. Do
apt-get install -f mycroft-mark-1
and let me know the output of
OK, just launched it, will give you the result at the end, but mycroft-mark-1 and mycroft-wifi-setup were, for an unknown reason, not installed on my Mark 1.
Wait, I’m not sure of that, because I don’t remember if apt-get would say it’s a reinstall or just an install.
here is the apt-get log:
sudo apt-get install -f mycroft-mark-1 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

And for good measure let’s do a reboot by pressing the top button for 2 seconds, and rotating the button till you see “REBOOT”, then press the button.
As the screen was off, I couldn’t, but I restarted using the good old
sudo reboot using SSH, and now eyes are lit and screen is working now
Thanks for your help!
Are the eyes moving now when mycroft is active or not?
Also, is there some progress with other languages support (notably French, Italian…)?
That’s great! Thanks for confirming @kalon33.
The eyes blink when a command is issued, but don’t move.
Regarding language support, that’s coming along slowly, but you can read more here:
