I upgraded one RB112 from 2.9.24 to 2.9.25 and now its not working any suggestions how to fix this mess?

I guess the package was broken, now how do I fix it?

Here's the terminal output

Reboot, yes? [y/N]:
system will reboot shortly

Stopping services...

Why mikrotik does not ZIP the .npk?

Does anybody has an idea why Mikrotik guys does not ZIP .npk files in order to avoid this "damaged" packages downloads in the future?

Is a lot easier to re-download a damaged ZIP that netinstall again a router, dont you think so?

I had to netinstall 3 2.9.18 to 2.9.25 upgrades this week on RB112's. I did not change the file or redownload it, it worked on 3 of them, and 3 of them it failed on. Some I used FTP, others I used Winbox drag and drop, and it didn't seem to matter (3 good ones were combinations of both also), and 1 was lost with a direct ethernet connection.

All the same downloaded file. Does MT have a checksum on the NPK file, or does it blindly install it?

Thks sergejs, but I guess you mean the "all packages" file isnt it?

And I guess the file that is or was damaged was the one hosted at Mikrotiks USA server; because I downloaded it again and upgrade again the RB112 and had the same result, then I tried to netinstall that same .npk and netinstall crashed, then I downloaded the .npk from Latvia server and everything just went OK.

That does make sense, I think I might have redownloaded the file after I had a problem from the first one now that you mention it.

Well ... it was upgraded using a FTP client....
The Netinstall method was used after the routerOS got screwed up by the damaged .npk file.
