Expedition no longer loads in browser

I ran the following commands in the CLI on expedition.


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y
sudo apt-get install expedition-beta
sudo apt-get autoremove -y
sudo apt-get autoclean -y

sudo reboot


(I used the following command to run them all at once and I also attempted it running them all one at a time).

sudo -- sh -c 'apt-get update; apt-get upgrade -y; apt-get dist-upgrade -y; apt-get install expedition-beta; apt-get autoremove -y; apt-get autoclean -y'


It now reports 0 packages can be updated, 0 updates are security updates when logging in.  It also reports 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove, and 0 not upgraded when running the apt-get install expedition-beta command by itself.


It shows I am running 16.04.6 LTS and says "new release 18.04.2 LTS available" with a prompt to run "do-release-upgrade" to upgrade to that release.


It shows I am running 1.1.6 for the expedition version.


running ps -e shows apache running but when I try to open the browser to my expedition instance, it never times out with any browser errors or anything of that sort.  Instead I just get a blank white page and it never loads/displays anything.  I get the same results on Edge, IE, Firefox, and Chrome.  


Any suggestions/ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Alex in MT.

Re: Expedition no longer loads in browser

I wanted to add that I also have not yet upgraded to the 18.04.2 LTS release because I haven't found anything anywhere yet saying whether Expedition is supported on that upgrade yet or not.


I also ran the following command once yesterday to update the best practice analysis piece too.


sudo bash /var/www/html/OS/BPA/updateBPA306.sh


and at one point yesterday I also tried the following command

sudo service apache2 restart


but whether I do that command or do the command sudo reboot, doesn't seem to make any difference.


I am pretty new to linux so I have pretty much hit the end of what I know to try.

Thanks again to anyone that can offer any assistance.

Re: Expedition no longer loads in browser

WOW.  sorry for my posting for something so silly.  Once one of my co-workers told me they could get to it I realized it was my PC and not the server.  I cleared the cache across all my browsers and now I can get to it again.  I don't understand why or how it worked prior to the upgrade but after the upgrade I was forced to clear my cache to get to it again and it didn't impact any of my co-workers but regardless problem solved.  Thanks everyone :)

I'm facing the same problem once I update the expedition. Also, I follow your suggestion and clear the cache on browser. The problem solved. Thanks for your comment.
