Fwupdate target tool in legato 19.02 issue

Dear all,

We have a strange problem after installing the legato 19.02 system. (We have used fwupdate download from an old version)

After the install checkStatus is OK for some time/reboots but after shortly it goes to (not clear why):
root@swi-mdm9x15:~# fwupdate checkStatus
Connecting to service …
Bad status (Unknown����)̾08��), install not possible.

What is strage that after that fwupdate only recognizes absoulte paths even it is in a “good” state.
start downloading: "fwupdate download /home/root/newSys.cwe "
Can’t open file … : “fwupdate newSys.cwe” (in the directory)

But anyway it seems to not working right even if it tries to install the image.

What I have noticed that something has changed with the links from 19.01 to 19.02:
19.01 --> /legato/systems/current/bin/fwupdate
19.02 --> /legato/systems/current/appsWriteable/tools/bin/fwupdate

Does anybod have any idea?

Best,
tom

UPDATE.
After legato 19.02 install, rebooting the device with “reboot” command does not reproduce the issue, But after power reset it will appear.

Apparently it is not just this version but other version are also effected. We have also tried with different module. (WP85, WP7607) I am not sure if we should be worried about this…I guess the only option is to look into the source code.

@tomalex,

1- In the fwupdate --help, it’s mentioned that “fwupdate checkStatus” is only valid for DualSys platform = check the status of the downloaded package (DualSys platform only) … and with WP we don’t have a DUALSYS
2- You use which release? and i don’t understand how you use fwupdate download from an old version, normally when you install a new legato system you get the fwupdate that comes with.
