I am running a Raspberry Pi 3 B+. After the update to 6.1 hosed my install, I figured I’d get a fresh build running and restore my data.
However, each new boot fails. Everything seems to work fine- no errors pop up on the screen. Eventually it says “Waiting for the Home Assistant CLI to be ready…” which I’d expect. However, after some time a new message comes up on the screen plugged into the Pi:
“[WARN] Home Assistant CLI not starting! Jump into emergency console…”
No number of reboots fixes this issue, and search doesn’t reveal this to be a common message. If I type “login”, it refreshes the screen, starting with “waiting for the Home Assistant CLI to be ready”, but after some amount of time the same [WARN] message comes up again.
My router sees the Pi on the network, and I can ping it. However, there is no GUI or method to login.
This is happening with a fresh flash, using the 6.1 build following the directions on the website (using Balena Etcher) on a 128gb u3 SD card. I’ve tried a different SD card with the same results. 6 separate flashes, two of which were left for 4+ hours before attempting to reach the CLI/GUI. No change.
I am not familiar with the emergency console and very lost/frustrated. Any help is greatly appreciated
