After 2.8 I'm having tons of issues. What are the steps from square 1 to get this working?
So I am trying to download the MM software after the update on July 1st. It won’t work anymore. First dependencies didn’t install, then node wasn’t up to date. Please someone help. Help me fix this!!!
After a whole bunch of trying things I ended up here
pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ pm2 status all ┌──────┬────┬──────┬─────────┬────┬─────┬────────┐ │ Name │ id │ mode │ status │ ↺ │ cpu │ memory │ ├──────┼────┼──────┼─────────┼────┼─────┼────────┤ │ mm │ 0 │ fork │ errored │ 30 │ 0% │ 0 B │ └──────┴────┴──────┴─────────┴────┴─────┴────────┘
More than likely u need to do
In the MagicMirror folder, and in each module folder that has a package.json file.
@sdetweil aright. I’ll try that however I’ve done it before and no luck. How would I do it for the other modules and package.json files. All I know what to do is just to type the command
But It doesn’t work
@Gomalley case sensitive, must be
Look in the modules folder and each of those for a package.json file.
And if u find one, then in that folder do
You could also try my update script. I haven’t tried it over an attempted update
So I deleted everything and I started over. On a new load of raspbian without doing the MM bash command, I typed
It gave me this:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ npm install npm WARN npm npm does not support Node.js v10.15.2 npm WARN npm You should probably upgrade to a newer version of node as we npm WARN npm can't make any promises that npm will work with this version. npm WARN npm Supported releases of Node.js are the latest release of 4, 6, 7, 8, 9. npm WARN npm You can find the latest version at https://nodejs.org/ npm WARN saveError ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/home/pi/package.json' npm notice created a lockfile as package-lock.json.

After this I tried your new code and I got this:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ bash -c "$(curl -sL https://www.dropbox.com/s/4qod39yi8ek0feu/upgrade-script?dl=0)" bash: line 24: cd: /home/pi/MagicMirror/installers: No such file or directory bash: line 26: cd: OLDPWD not set doing test run = true bash: line 61: /home/pi/MagicMirror/installers/dumpactivemodules.js: No such file or directory update log will be in /home/pi/upgrade.log bash: line 70: cd: /home/pi/MagicMirror: No such file or directory bash: line 72: cd: css: No such file or directory saving custom.css cp: cannot stat 'custom.css': No such file or directory bash: line 75: cd: OLDPWD not set fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git fetching latest revisions fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git MagicMirror git pull failed bash: line 183: cd: css: No such file or directory restoring custom.css cp: cannot stat 'save_custom.css': No such file or directory rm: cannot remove 'save_custom.css': No such file or directory bash: line 188: cd: OLDPWD not set bash: line 210: cd: OLDPWD not set
Should I try running the original bash command?:
bash -c “$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/master/installers/raspberry.sh)”
@Gomalley you are missing some fundamentals.
THIS is called install
git clone .... copies the code from github to your system at this point it will not run you need to change to the MagicMirror folder and execute npm install so that all the additional node routines needed are loaded onto your system
now, once you have installed
there are updates every quarter…
so, then in the MagicMirror folder you need to download the new code OVER the prior code
so, you do
cd ~/MagicMirror git pull
but we are in the same position as during install…
routines we need may have changed, or we may have decided to use something different
so, once again, to get all the updates for other code we use
cd ~/MagicMirror npm install
BUT there is one more step…
any modules YOU installed may have dependencies too
SO, they (like MagicMirror) specify those dependencies in a package.json file
so, we need to look thru ALL the non-default module folders looking for a package.json file
if we find one, we need to run npm install in that modules folder too.
repeat til all module folders with a package.json file
the install script (raspberry.sh) does the
npm install in tghe MagicMirror folder.
my update script
does all the update steps… (I just added a check for the MagicMirror folder being present)
but you had to have done the install steps first…
npm install by itself without download any MagicMirror code doesn’t do anything useful, as there is no package.json file in the uses home folder by default.
@sdetweil I tried putting npm install into the modules and vendor folders but there weren’t that many json files in that directory.
@Gomalley no. In the modules/MMM-??? Folders for the modules u have installed in addition to the base MagicMirror
@sdetweil when i go to /home/pi/MagicMirror/modules
these are the folders present: Default, node_modules, README.md
If i further click into default i get a ton more (alert, calendar, clock, compliment s, currentweather, helloworld , newsfeed, …) Other than the magicmirror program, I have not installed anything else
@Gomalley ok, wasnt clear u had just the base MagicMirror.
If you do pm2 logs, what does it show?
Also, what does npm -v show?
U may need to upgrade npm
npm i -g npm
Then do the npm install again in the MagicMirror folder
