MM electron command not found after update



  • My MM will not start up anymore after performing the update. I updated with the git pull command in the MM folder. Then I got this error:

    0|mm       | A JavaScript error occurred in the main process
    0|mm       | Uncaught Exception:
    0|mm       | Error: Cannot find module 'module-alias/register'

    Searching the forum it seemed like this had to do with forgetting about including the npm install command. So that is what I did next. Both with the git pull and the second attempt with npm install I forgot to stop MM with pm2. Then I got this message about electron not beeing found:

    0|mm       | npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in:

    Then I tried running the installer supplied by Sam, as sugested in several post. Running the command “bash -c “$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts/master/upgrade-script.sh)” apply” didn’t throw any errors but after rebooting MM was not working. pm2 logs mm gives the same electron error as before and here is the log form the upgradescript:

    So it seems Electron is up to date, but somehow the command isn’t recognized. What can I do to solve the error?



  • @sdetweil
    Just booted the MM and it is working again. Do no know why it now runs ok and yesterday not (didn’t do anything new). So I guess this topic is solved.



  • @HarrisonHeroux do an
    npm install
    In the MagicMirror folder
