Unable to write temporary log to /var/tmp/uploadlog.txt


I wanted to create a log
grab-logs -A

but had a problem

Unable to write temporary log to /var/tmp/uploadlog.txt

even so this file does exists
could create it with sudo and changed access to 777.

I upgraded to OSMC 18.1 but kodi is not starting.

only the sad smily…

thanks for your help


Sounds like a filesystem problem. Try instead:

dmesg | paste-log
cat .kodi/temp/kodi.log | paste-log


hi thanks
indeed, looks like a space problem
will check


cat .kodi/temp/kodi.log | paste-log


looks like the space problem was the root cause that kodi is not starting.

will check now the nightly kodi


Which would also explain why the grab-logs couldn’t write the file :wink:


I still can not manage to upgrade to Kodi 18.
still running 17.8 after

I did comment this line and
#deb http://apt.osmc.tv jessie main
deb http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc-18 ./
to apt sources

osmc@DEVosmc96RPI2:~$ sudo apt-get install rbp2-mediacenter-osmc
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
rbp2-mediacenter-osmc is already the newest version.


sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Version: 17.8-114

How do I get 18.1 nightly get installed?



Don’t comment this deb http://apt.osmc.tv jessie main!
Just add deb http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc-18 ./ additionally

this is Kodi 18! It is just named as 17.8!


ok perfect, thanks, than it worked:slight_smile:


by the way do you know this issue?
Use of uninitialized value in hash element at /usr/bin/apt-show-versions line 578, line 3167.
this appeared just recently while upgrading


No clue
