Receiving "Error: System service failed"

Hello, I’m having some issues I was hoping I could get some help with. I had to reflash the SD card for my Umbrel due to an issue and after flashing it, the Umbrel GUI now shows “Error: System service failed”.

I ran ~/umbrel/scripts/debug --upload and it came back with this:

The debug script did not automatically detect any issues with your Umbrel.

I also ran docker container ls and it looks like there are no containers? I would think LND should be there, if not more.

Does anyone know what the issue could be? Would it be due to the Umbrel OS being different from the flashed OS? Or something else?

Thanks in advance.

Is right there the error…
So your update is not finished.
In the troubleshooting manual there’s a section about manually update. See there instructions about how to deal with this “an update is already in progress”

Thanks you’re right. It’s all good now thanks for the help.
