FIX for App upgrades (missing ".../ix-applications/catalogs/" contents )

Mar 2, 2024
This may be a problem unique to me as my trueNAS Scale install process had a small hiccup, but I was trying to update plex and it gave this error

[ENOENT] Unable to locate 'plex' at '/mnt/(drive)/ix-applications/catalogs/github_com_truenas_charts_git_master/charts/plex'

This was after updating truenas scale to "Cobia" (, which I only updated to because plex said I couldn't keep it on Angelfish and still update it.

I also got this error in there somewhere:

[EFAULT] Failed to clone '' repository at '/mnt/secksyboi/ix-applications/catalogs/github_com_truenas_charts_git_master' destination: [EFAULT] Failed to clone '' repository at '/mnt/(drive)/ix-applications/catalogs/github_com_truenas_charts_git_master' destination: Cloning into '/mnt/(drive)/ix-...

So anyway, turns out my '/mnt/(drive)/ix-applications/catalogs/' is empty and it's supposed to have a lot of stuff in it.

I'm not sure if it's supposed to work this way, but I manually copied this github into it:

Contents of this:
Goes Here

(you'll need to create the directory under that name)

I did it through SMB after lowering permissions on the directory but probably should have done it through the command line.

Anyways, plex upgraded after I transferred all that and I lived happily ever after. I hope this helps someone!

I have a similar problem of yours but on stable Scale.

My content follows:

root@XeoNAS[/mnt/XeoPool/ix-applications]# root@XeoNAS[/mnt/XeoPool/ix-applications]# ls -long
total 28
-rw-r--r-- 1  76 Mar 28 12:58 app_migrations.json
drwxr-xr-x 5   5 Feb 28 20:16 backups
drwxr-xr-x 2   2 Mar 28 12:58 catalogs
-rw-r--r-- 1 338 May 30  2022 config.json
drwxr-xr-x 2   2 May 30  2022 default_volumes

-rw-r--r-- 1 229 Mar 28 12:58 migrations.json
drwxr-xr-x 2   2 May 30  2022 releases

Do I need other contents?

I start thinking into an issue.
