INDI_asi_ccd driver crashes after stable release update?

Anyone else having problems with ASI driver crashes tonight in SM OS? I just updated (stable) using the command sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade
on StellarMate OS and now my indi_asi_ccd driver is crashing instantly on start. Relevant log bits below. Any clues on how to get happy again?

[2020-05-08T02:07:22.521 GMT INFO ][ org.kde.kstars] - Build: 2020-05-04T11:08:22Z

[2020-05-08T02:16:44.177 GMT CRIT ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - INDI driver "indi_asi_ccd" crashed!

After this, I tried to go to the nightly build, but the command wasn't recognized on SM OS. I googled for this and saw that when this happens, a package install is required:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

After this, I tried the stable and nightly baselines again. Neither of the commands work:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/indinightly
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/apt-add-repository", line 95, in <module>
sp = SoftwareProperties(options=options)

(self.id, self.codename))
aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for Raspbian/buster

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ppa-purge

Given I can't get either of the first commands to work, I didn't try to execute the follow-on commands. I think I'm still on STABLE.
So, without the package updater app working, and neither of the command line functions working, I'm out of ideas. WTH?
Next, to try and see if I can manually force the indi_asi_ccd driver update. Good thing it's a full moon.....

Note that if I try to run indiserver from /usr/bin with the indi_asi_ccd driver, I get the following:
indi_server ./indi_asi_ccd (from /usr/bin):
indiserver indi_asi_ccd
2020-05-08T07:46:02: startup: indiserver indi_asi_ccd
2020-05-08T07:46:02: Driver indi_asi_ccd: indi_asi_ccd: symbol lookup error: indi_asi_ccd: undefined symbol: _ZN4INDI7CCDChip8setFrameEiiii
This pattern repeats until the 10x tries limit is up....

Thanks, Doug

I have the same issue, but with both the indi_asi_ccd and indi_qhy_ccd drivers. I traced it to /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libindidriver.so.1.8.6. If I relink the /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libindidriver.so.1 to the .5 version - all works.

Anyone fix this yet ???

I was lucky to have an extra raspberry pi that I had not been updated yet and that I knew worked. So I found the /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libindidriver.so.1.8.5 (.5 version) from there and copied it over to my defunct updated pi.

I'm not sure where you could find the .5 version - perhaps someone could help answer that??

But here is what I did: I copied (scp) the libindidriver.so.1.8.5 file to my defunct update raspberry pi and placed it in /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/ directory, then:
cd /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/
rm libindidriver.so.1 # this was a link to the .6 lib
ln -s libindidriver.so.1.8.5 libindidriver.so.1 # now links it to the .5 lib

And started this up and voila, qhy and zwo were now working.

But the real issue here, is can someone please fix this in the release code?? This is sort of a show stopper ... !!

I did an apt purge, then a reinstall - it still does not work, now I'm getting the error (for both indi_asi_ccd and indi_qhy_ccd):
symbol lookup error: indi_asi_ccd:
undefined symbol: _ZN4INDI3CCD9ISNewBLOBEPKcS2_PiS3_PPcS5_S5_i
(this is a different undefined symbol)
Once again, relinking libindidriver.so.1 to libindidriver.so.1.8.5 works.

Was this fix put in the release or do I need to download the new one separately?

Did you try to install INDI manually from source? There is most likely another INDI installation that this is getting linked to. Check /usr/local

No other INDI source. I had removed and purged everything.

I do have another Raspberry Pi that I can load a fresh Ubuntu onto and install a fresh/virgin KSTARS/EKOS/INDI on - I'll do that right now and let you know what happens.

I created a fresh Ubuntu V20.04 sim and placed it in a 4G RPI4 then:
apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa
apt update
apt -y install indi-full kstars-bleeding
Noticed that in /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/, libindidriver .so.1 is linked to the .5 version:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Apr 25 20:03 libindidriver.so.1 -> libindidriver.so.1.8.5
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1189152 Apr 25 20:03 libindidriver.so.1.8.5

kstars --version says 3.4.2

Which works.

Is this right - was the fix to go back to .5 version?

That's the stable version, but I don't have any issues with 1.8.6 either on any platform.
