Facing unmounting issue on Mender 1.7.0 - Yocto sumo

Hi,
I’m currently using mender 1.7.0 server and Yocto sumo branch on i.MX8 platform.
The Rocko and 1.6.0 were worked on the same platform.
But, I’m facing the below issue on Mender 1.7.0 with Sumo branch:

  • The mender artifact update will fail with an error saying “error: update image installation failed: invalid argument

By default, the inactive partition is mounted on the platform (even for mender 1.6.0 with Rocko). But it shows some issue for unmounting the inactive partition on sumo with mender 1.7.0.

When I manually unmounted the inactive partition, then it worked!

I have given the complete error log from the server side below:

The corresponding screen shot is given below:

May I know what is the issue and how to properly resolve this one?

Similar thread on the mailing list.

I would focus on making sure that the inactive parts are not mounted, they really should not be.
