amtm AMTM reports bin.entware.net as unreachable

Upgraded to latest asuswrt-merlin version (386.7.2) last night. This morning, AMTM's manual check for updates shows two things of concern.

1. No update for Entware:
Code:
 ep manage   Entware packages         upd err

2. Note at bottom of AMTM:
Code:
! Entware: bin.entware.net unreachable
 Everything's up to date (Aug 03 2022 08:25)

No issues pinging or loading bin.entware.net by hand, so I checked installed packages, which shows this at the top.

Code:
Collected errors:
 * parse_from_stream_nomalloc: Missing new line character at end of file!
 * parse_from_stream_nomalloc: Missing new line character at end of file!

This router runs Entware armv7sf-k3.2, if relevant. A simple force update to AMTM v3.3 didn't help, so I worry there's something deeper going on. Where should I go next?

Did you try a reboot (via the GUI) and then wait 10 to 15 minutes before testing for functionality again?

It would also help if you let us know what router you have too.

Thanks, should've said this is an Asus RT-AX58U, reported as "RT-AX58U (armv7l) FW-386.7" in AMTM. I rebooted it, waited 15min, and tried to update entware packages, with this output.

Code:

I was able to reach https://bin.entware.net/armv7sf-k3.2/Packages.gz from a web browser on the same network without issue. A ping test to bin.entware.net also worked as expected.

Code:

Any guess what's happening in AMTM that could fail to make the connection? Is there a simple text error (Missing new line character at end of file) in one of the dependent files?

Does this command work?
Code:
wget https://bin.entware.net/armv7sf-k3.2/Packages.gz -O /dev/null

Also check this:
Code:
which wget

Maybe your USB drive is corrupted, mounted in read-only mode or out of space.

Try:
Code:
touch /opt/tmp/testme

ls -l /opt
ls -l /tmp/opt
df -h

I'm at a loss as to why amtm doesn't seem to be able to download that file when it works fine from the command line. Have you tried amtm again? Maybe it was a temporary problem with the site.

P.S. rm /opt/tmp/testme

OK, sounds like one of those small issues that can follow a dirty update to the latest wrtmerlin. Will set aside time to do a clean install and see if that solves things.

Experienced the update err this morning with amtm, restored a backup i had of the JFFS partition and a reboot
That solved it for me

Ha, now know I should've backed up JFFS before the update. Will run a clean install of the USB stick.

...although, now that I think about it, is there a less-impactful way to reinstall/repair entware than zapping everything on the stick?

Code:
 This router runs Entware armv7sf-k3.2
See available packages list here:
https://bin.entware.net/armv7sf-k3.2/Packages.html

1. Update and upgrade Entware packages
2. Show installed Scripts and Entware packages

Enter selection [1-2 e=Exit] 2

Collected errors:
* parse_from_stream_nomalloc: Missing new line character at end of file!
* parse_from_stream_nomalloc: Missing new line character at end of file!

Seeing this simplistic error when I list installed packages makes me think there's one or two files that need a follow new line to make everything happy again, just not sure how to locate the right files.

Is the date and time set correctly on the router?

It appears to be some sort of certificate problem. There was a similar sounding issue with the RT-AC87U caused by the router's certificates having expired. Have you done anything on your router that might effect certificates?

I just update latest firmware 386.7.2
Isn't it certificate /rom/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt from firmware?

I'm going to reply in your other thread here as your problem is different than the one originally discussed in this thread.
