I'm trying to grade a RPi-3B, running Buster, to Node-RED 2.0.5
After the upgrade Node-RED gives loads of error message, I suspect because nodejs is still v8.17.0
I used this bash script. This is a screen-shot of the update report.
Any suggestions on what I could try next to update Node.js to v12 ?
What does the install log show?
What does this show?
apt policy nodejs
I don't think that is the issue, it says it is installing 12 but ends up with 8 so something odd is going on.
pi@RPi_138:~ $ apt policy nodejs
E: Invalid operation policy
I've just cleared the logs as they are lengthy and will do another install and will then post the log.
Are you sure you are running Buster?
I suspect that could be the problem, this is the result of doing lsb_release -a
I was sure I upgraded Stretch to Buster. I'll go through the steps again.
I always use
pi@testpi : ~ $ cat /etc/os-release
PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)"
SUPPORT_URL="RaspbianForums - Raspbian"
BUG_REPORT_URL="RaspbianBugs - Raspbian"
pi@testpi : ~ $
Thanks to everyone who tried to help me yesterday.
I spent 3-hrs yesterday whilst the RPi-3B was updating from Stretch to Buster only to be hit with some error messages about pkgs!! If I'd known it was going to take that long I wouldn't have bothered and would have gone immediately to plan-B.
Plan-B. This morning I've flashed a brand new SD card with 2021-05-07-raspios-buster-armhf, installed Node-RED then used the above script to get to v2.0.0-beta.2 the did an update to get to Node-RED v2.0.5 and can report everything is working fine.
Thankfully I backed-up the project area from the old SD card and will copy this over to the new one.
Plan B - Always the better plan in my opinion
