Hi

I upgraded Ubuntu from 16.04LTS to 18.04LTS, and now the scan is stuck. e.g.



This page shows the progress of each phase of the scanning process.

Discovering files/directories: /mnt/music/Music (8104 of 8104) Complete 00:00:02

Scanning new music files: /mnt/music/Music (7435 of 7435) Complete 00:00:35


Abort scan



It's been like this for an hour. Does anyone have any suggestions? It still plays music, but a "clear and rescan" just does the same.

Many thanks


Jim

Was it an upgrade or a clean install? Reason I ask is perhaps it is a permissions issue with your music directory and files

Upgrade...permissions seem okay, but lack of logs is a worry.

I'm going to try a fresh install on a new VM.

Many thanks for the reply, much appreciated.

I gave up and did a fresh install of Ubuntu. Working like a dream again :)

Looks the same as this issue:

As a fresh install is not an option for me, I am still looking for a good solution.
