Unable to update Firmware

Hi GrovePi experts,

I’m using GrovePi+ board and recently after the sudo apt-get upgrade / update / dist-upgrade , the firmware_update.sh seems to not function, with the reply as:

Press any key to start firmwre update

Any guidance can be given ?

It would help to know if you’re on a Pi4, and if so, is it the 8G version?

Thanks cleoqc for the reply.

I’m still looking for any guidance to fix the problem that i faced. Appreciate…

After some investigations, doing the dist-upgrade removed the gpio utility. That’s not on our side, but on the Raspberry Pi Foundation side.

I know I worked on this and had solved it, but I seem to have lost the fix. It will take me a couple of days before I can look into this.
Really sorry about this .

Hi there,
I’m having the same problem (and several others). Can you give us an update on this issue?
I can’t execute digitalReads with the board are well. Is this problem related?
Thanks in advance
