Password initialization button 'stuck' and login via ssh = WARNING: POSSIBLE DNS SPOOFING DETECTED!

Hi there,

I have seen some posts on here about the loading screen being stuck upon initialization or perhaps after updating. Using all the recommended hardware for the Raspberry Pi node set up and accessing through Ethernet on my Windows 10 laptop:

  • I go to umbrel.local on my laptop browser (firefox) and there is a brief loading screen with the Umbrel sign
  • Then the ‘Welcome to Umbrel’ page comes up, and I can make the ‘Start’ button a darker shade of green upon moving my mouse over the button.
  • Then I begin the process of initializing my username and password. First the username comes up for me to enter
  • I type in a username, I move my mouse over ‘Next’ button and it turns a darker shade of green, just like in the welcome screen immediately before. I click on it and I am then brought to the password initialization page.
  • I enter a password of my choosing. I move my mouse over ‘Next’ button to set the password and the button does NOT turn a darker shade of green upon doing so (like the two other pages immediately before this one). I click on it anyway, and nothing happens (I cannot progess from this page father down the initialization process. I took a screen shot of that password screen ‘sticking’ or ‘freezing’, for you to look at.

I assume from this that it is ‘stuck’. Many posts describe something similar in experience and use the word ‘stuck’ to describe not being able to get through the initialization process or the loading process etc.

I then attempt to login using ssh. When I enter ssh umbrel@umbrel.local into the command prompt, I get the following (Note that I also try known_hosts script, which to be fair I do not know if I am doing right):

C:\Users\itadmin>ssh umbrel@umbrel.local

The ECDSA host key for umbrel.local has changed,
and the key for the corresponding IP address 10.0.0.29
is unknown. This could either mean that
DNS SPOOFING is happening or the IP address for the host
and its host key have changed at the same time.

IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!
Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
It is also possible that a host key has just been changed.
The fingerprint for the ECDSA key sent by the remote host is

Please contact your system administrator.
Add correct host key in C:\Users\itadmin/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.

C:\Users\itadmin>ssh/known_hosts

Thus it is difficult to determine what to do, without the ability to debug it using ssh. many thanks for the help.

  • On what device / OS you are running Umbrel Raspberry Pi
  • How is your Umbrel connected to the Internet Ethernet
  • What type of drive you are using SSD via USB

I have the same problem- did you get a fix?
