Looking at these logs, I think this is to be expected since the update has removed…?

How can I make sure that the update was installed correctly? I can provide further/complete log files if required.


Got the same during update… would be nice if somehow warning of the expected issue was provided in some manner.

Same problem, I refreshed the page and the GUI reappeared…

This wasn’t exactly expected. It just happens when the GUI refreshes in the wrong moment. There is nothing dangerous happening here. Just reload it and you are fine :slight_smile:

Cool. At least this thread will save those that see it will know it is informational.
