I have a Raspberry Pi 4 4GB. I had sucessfully installed HA by flashing an image to an SD card using the process described in the website. It worked well and I was loving HA and my new automated life until i clicked on update 3 days ago. HA stopped responding and I couldn’t connect to it with SAMBA or CLI. I had a recent backup of the configuration so decided to do a clean install then restore the configuration.
I used exactly the same procedure as the first time, the only difference is I’m using the new OS version. I have tried multiple times using the instructions here https://www.home-assistant.io/getting-started/ . Every time it gets to the point where I can connect to HA with a browser. The “Preparing Home Assistant” message comes up, but it never gets past that point. I have waited up to 12hours.
I have tried version 5.8 64 and 32 bit images. Also tried the 5.9 version in case there were some bug fixes. No change.
I can see on my router console that HA is connected to the router and I can ping it’s IP from my PC.
I connected a keyboard, mouse, monitor. The system boots successfully to the point where I get the Welcome to Home Assistant message. I can login using root and get the welcome to home assistant command line message.
After a few days of frustration, I decided to install OpenHab Habbian OS. That worked perfectly which proves there is nothing wrong with the PI, SD card, network etc. After about an hour fiddling with OPenhab I realize why most people are choosing HA and went back to trying to get HA working.
Here is a shot of the logs, stats and info of the install.
I ran the Core Update command and get Command completed successfully reply. I assume this means it is able to connect to the internet to check for updates.
I’m out of ideas. Greatly appreciate any suggestion to fix or troubleshoot this
