nanoPi R4S 23.05.2 Attended SysUpgrade Issues

Hi guys, i am attemting to upgrade my nanoPi RS4 with 23.05.0 which should be upgraded with an attended sysupgrade to 23.05.2. The image get's built and on install it errors out with:

Fri Nov 17 19:02:08 2023 upgrade: The device is supported, but the config is incompatible to the new image (1.1->1.0). Please upgrade without keeping config (sysupgrade -n).

The config was restored from an ER-X and runs since weeks without an issue.

Any hint's how i can fix this issue and finally run the attended sysupgrade?


By literally doing what the message tells you to do.

NOPE i do not what the message is telling me :slight_smile:
Found the answer because of an hint of pmendla on github here:

That also did the trick for me.
Maybe (very likely) the issue was from porting/restoring my ER-X config on the nanoPi R4S.

Just for others with the same issue.
To solve it do the following:

  • Connect with ssh to the openwrt device
  • nano /etc/config/system
  • Search for:
    config system
    option compat_version 'X.X'
  • put the requested version number in from the log message, in my case it was requesting 1.0. So i changed 1.1 to 1.0
  • CTRL-X > Y
  • do attended sysupgrade again, this time it worked
