There is a problem with the opkg upgrade, the management page cannot be displayed, please help me

Help !
I see here that there is a command to upgrade all the applications.
“opkg list-upgradable | cut -f 1 -d ' ' | xargs opkg upgrade”

After using it, I find that the admin management page is blank and cannot be accessed. Oh my gosh, this is used by my work unit, the boss will kill me😂
I use x86_64 firmware
Please help me solve this problem

This has been asked and answered hundreds of times, no - bulk upgrading is not a good idea on OpenWrt (for multiple reasons, details you'll find in previous threads). Why do you think that opkg doesn't have an internal upgrade-all command.

Factory reset or flash a newer OpenWrt version and it will be fixed.


@tmomas I really think this should be removed.


Oh my god, I really do n’t know if this problem is an old problem ...
Then I can only solve it by resetting? God, what can I do ... there are a lot of configurations on it?

Can you access the device by SSH?
Take a backup /sbin/sysupgrade -b /tmp/backup-${HOSTNAME}-$(date +%F).tar.gz and copy it with SCP to your PC, flash the image again and restore the backup.

May want a list of installed packages, depending on how things were flashed.

Thank you, just try it.

Thanks for reply……

I'm guessing the uhttpd update got him if he's on 19.07.1.

Maybe add a warning to the LUCI Software -> Updates page and also add a 10 second countdown + warning for the CLI command.

I edited the wiki page by moving the one-liner away from the main options table. I also added cautionary text there.
