Brief description of the problem

Unable to execute update for rock-ons so the list won’t populate.

Detailed step by step instructions to reproduce the problem

Fresh installation, tried the command via webUI and the pop up appears after 3 minutes.
Tried to yum update and the issue remains. I don’t receive any errors during update.
Server is a HP N36L with 4Gb RAM running on a 250Gb 2.5" HDD.
I have an another one, identical, that does not have such problem. I’ve tried reinstalling over other HDD, but the issue remains.
I even tried on a completely different machine, HP ML110 G5, same result.
I tried to upload the configuration file from the working one but it does not work

there is NO code on the webUI error popup.

@Darkest, welcome to the Rockstor Community. Did you happen to check out this post, it looks like they had a similar no coding message with the same components (/api/rockons/update).

None of that might of course apply to you and you’ve tried that already.

On a side note, if you haven’t found the search function on this forum, the header bar is a little bit funky, if you hover near your name avatar, then the looking glass will show up, like this:



Thanks, the answer was in that thread.
For whatever reason wget wasn’t installed on ANY of my Rockstors, except for the very first working one.
I used a PiHole too, but it was disabled during my tests to be sure that it wouldn’t block anything.

Solved by installing wget…


glad to hear that it worked out! Would you mind adding [Solved] in front of your post, so the next person can quickly identify what might work for them?
