Hi, on moving from 17.1 to 18.1, following exactly the official instructions for upgrade, I had a similar issue to what is described above. Came to the PIN enter page and it would not accept the PIN. Eventually I had to reinstall from scratch.

This week I installed the weekly update on Monday using the Updater app in LOS 18.1 official. When the phone rebooted, it went to the screen to enter the PIN. It accepted my PIN and said it was starting android but then it went back into the boot animation again for a long time and eventually failed producing the message in the LOS recovery, "if this keeps happening you may need to wipe phone". Indeed it kept happening and I had to wipe the phone and manually install from scratch. I had a seedvault backup this time so restored from that during the "set up" process after the wipe and reinstall (but so much is left out of the Seedvault backup, it was a lot of work).

For future updates, is it safer to install them manually? Even if it is less convenient, I would probably go that route in future if it reduced the risk of a bootloop.

Many thanks!

The OTA app should work fine... strange that this happens. It would be helpful to attach logs if it happens next time.

I've had our testing team test this - we could not reproduce the issue when we used LineageOS Recovery and MindtheGApps.

hello,
I have downloaded today's update, but when i proceeded to install, i got the error in the recovery:
E:Error opening trace file: no such file or directory (2)
E:Failed to read /cache/recovery/block.map: No such file or directory

I did exactly the same thing as usual- downloaded the update and used LineageOS recovery to install.
Not sure whats wrong this time.
I did manage to restart and still using the phone as normal
Any advice?

Edit: i forgot to mention that i was doing that without connecting to PC, i was only using my phone and it was working great until today.

hello,
OTA update not working for me again.
After downloading files, and beginning installation, i got the messages in recovery:

E:Error opening trace file: No such file or directory (2)
E:Failed to read /cache/recovery/block.map: No such file or directory
E:Map of '@/cache/recovery/block.map' failed
E:failed to map file
E:Error exit from the fuse process: 1
Installation aborted.

OTA installation was working before, i used Lineage recovery on my phone, and system updater which downloaded 685MB package.
Any tips how to apply the update, and make OTA work again?
Many thanks in advance

I had to manually update recovery from fastboot and then had to download the update file and flash it from the updated recovery...

Same here.

Did the update manually, through ADB sideload.
Now, everytime I start Android, I can't type the password completelly. The system interrupts me, shows the logo animation again and then asks the password again, and only then I can finish typing the password.

You are coming from which rom? I installed over 17.1, my phone was pin locked, seens a bug on android 11 maybe, to backup data i used the MTP on TWRP.

From Lineage OS 18.1. I had the 2021-07-21 version.
I did the update manually through the Lineage Recovery, using ADB sideload and it worked. It's only a convenience problem.

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

    Instructions:
    • Download the latest build, recovery image and GApps (if you need them)
    • Flash the downloaded recovery image via fastboot
    • Boot to recovery
    • Format system and perform a factory reset
    • Reboot to recovery
    • Flash the latest build
    • Flash GApps and any other necessary add-ons

    What's working:
    • WiFi
    • Camera and Camcorder
    • Bluetooth
    • NFC
    • Fingerprint - Oreo firmware required
    • GPS
    • OTG
    • Video Playback
    • Audio
    • RIL
    • VoLTE
    • USB tethering/audio
    • SELinux: Enforcing

    Known issues:
    • VoWiFi

    Reporting Bugs
    • All bugs should be reported here: Issue Tracker
    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
    • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
    • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
    • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
    Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

    Hi, normally I post here only when there is a problem. This time I wanted to post just to say everything has been working very smoothly for weeks and I really appreciate all the work that goes into making that happen!

    Thank you! Just curious, what was the core reason of the issue?
    It was a problem with the F2FS driver.
