[RPi4] Missing cmdline.txt and config.txt on latest SNAPSHOT

Hi everyone,

Doing a sysupgrade with the latest SNAPSHOT results in the following error, caused by missing cmdline.txt and config.txt:

root@RPi4:~# sysupgrade -v /tmp/openwrt-bcm27xx-bcm2711-rpi-4-squashfs-sysupgrade.img.gz
Fri Mar  8 12:06:41 UTC 2024 upgrade: Reading partition table from bootdisk...
Fri Mar  8 12:06:41 UTC 2024 upgrade: Reading partition table from image...
Fri Mar  8 12:06:42 UTC 2024 upgrade: Saving config files...

tar: boot/config.txt: No such file or directory
etc/config/attendedsysupgrade
**(snip, snip)**
etc/uci-defaults/10_disable_services
tar: error exit delayed from previous errors
Failed to create the configuration backup.

Therefore sysupgrade exits and OpenWRT is not updated.
Should I force upgrade (i.e., is this an expect change, for instance to prepare for RPi5 support) or is the image currently broken?

Thanks for your time

There have been issues with system upgrade lately perhaps your running version got with this issue https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/commit/14ac91c68c0e17b8ec705256f0d9092bfb899466

Oh, that is likely it (or, at least, the other issue referenced there).
Many thanks for the help, I'll have to draw a plan to workaround this issue (worst-case scenario I'll just do a clean flash).
