   when I insert login and passwprd in the OMV weblogin i receive the error: "Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory"

The "show details" button tells:
Error #0: OMV\Rpc\Exception: Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/rpc.inc:140 Stack trace: #0 /var/www/openmediavault/rpc/session.inc(56): OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('UserMgmt', 'authUser', Array, Array, 2, true) #1 [internal function]: OMVRpcServiceSession->login(Array, Array) #2 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/serviceabstract.inc(123): call_user_func_array(Array, Array) #3 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/rpc.inc(86): OMV\Rpc\ServiceAbstract->callMethod('login', Array, Array) #4 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/proxy/json.inc(95): OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('Session', 'login', Array, Array, 3) #5 /var/www/openmediavault/rpc.php(45): OMV\Rpc\Proxy\Json->handle() #6 {main}

Googling I found this: https://forum.openmediavault.org/index.php/Thread/22324-Failed-to-connect-to-socket-Connection-refused/

In fact, running "omv-engined -f -d" I am able to access OMV correctly, anyway the problem is the same at the following reboot.

Should that be helpful I am attaching the bootlog.
1. I took the img file "debian-nas-stretch-18.069-armhf.img.gz" from here http://seafile.servator.de/nas/zyxel/images/
2. I installed aptitude and run an update of all the available packages.
3. Other info: OMV version: 4.1.19-1
4. I did not update the kernel. Version installed is 3.2.54.

Thank you in advance for your support.

    I simply updated the kernel with version 3.2.96 and now it runs as expected.
