after Thu Aug 08 08:08:08 UTC 2019 updates getting "rfkill: Cannot get wiphy information"


Hi, just applied Thu Aug 08 08:08:08 UTC 2019 updates to one of rpi3, as I've been doing all along and have not had any issues.

Today trying to bring up wireless I'm getting
Quote:
rfkill: Cannot get wiphy information
when doing
Code:
/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -B -iwlan0 -Dwext -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
in the same wireless start up script I've been using wtihout any changes.

Code:
lsmod | grep brcm
brcmfmac              311296  0
brcmutil               16384  1 brcmfmac
cfg80211              614400  1 brcmfmac
I've just started looking into things, thought maybe someone else is looking into theirs.

Maybe this is the reason from dmesg

I've been doing updates weekly, not sure why I didn't have a problem sooner, I'm looking into this post, Raspberry Pi 3 B+ Wifi NIC not found I'm going to see where that leads me.

Which Thu Aug 08 08:08:08 UTC 2019 updates did you install specifically?

All of them. Thank you Penthux for chiming in.

NEVERMIND, don't know how this post work-around for the missing RPi3 & 4 wireless firmware didn't dawn on me.

Solution was upgrading 'sarpi-hacks' packages for the Raspberry Pi 3.

I've been using same start/stop wireless scripts for years, found something new to me that -Dwext isn't needed.

Thanks Exaga!
