Upgrading from 9.0.2 to 9.2: Problem with VSFTP plugin

  • Hello there,


    Been running LibreElec on a RPI 3B+ for a while. Saw a new beta was out, and installed it manually (downloading the file from here: libreelec-rpi2.arm-9.1.001.img.gz), plopping it in the .update folder and rebooting the device.


    Upon rebooting, I was greeted by the "red look" of LibreElec, informing me that the boot had failed. I went looking in the log files and found this:


    Code

    After SSH'ing into the system and removing the plugin (by rm -rf on the folder), I could successfully boot. I then tried to reinstall the plugin from the addons menu, which failed, with these messages in log:

    Code

    The references to "9.0" in the URL there made me think my repository info was maybe out of date? And surely, after a refresh, only version 1.0.1.1 was an install option, which installed fine and works (now playing some music over SFTP).

    I don't know if this is related to the 9.2 image, but since I'm running a pretty vanilla libreelec (no extra/custom repositories, no funky addons, ...) I thought it would be wise to report anyway. AFAIK the vsftp plugin is an official kodi plugin as well - since SFTP support was removed from Kodi Core recently, I can imagine a lot of people have this installed.


    Full crashlog attached.
