Package Management Not Working Properly

I have just tried to update the packages on my Humax and I ended up having to shutdown the Humax after upgrading each package, a white box would appear with no message in it as if to say there was an error.

I was only able to upgrade one package at a time and then I could not access the Humax after each one from the webif, it now all seems to be ok, but this has never occurred before.

Using :-
Web interface version: 1.2.8-11
Custom firmware version: 3.00 (build 2137)
Humax Version: 1.02.32 (kernel HDR_CFW_3.00)
Loader Version: a7.30

Any ideas anybody ...

Yes, unfortunately this was a fault introduced by the web server software upgrade last month. Every time you install a package it tries to complete the configuration of that package which results in the web server software being shut down halfway through.

This can be fixed by running a package upgrade from the command line but I'd like to try and fix this centrally for everyone as it is still catching people.

Would you be able to run the lig diagnostic and post the output here?
I don't know what a lig diagnostic is so I ran the general diagnostic, does this help ?.

Just type the word 'lig' into the bottom box and then click on Run Diagnostic.

OK, Done.

Thanks - if you run the 'fixpkg' diagnostic that should sort it out for you.
There will be another webif and rs update tonight so that will provide a chance to test.
