I’ve been using Etcher without issues for several months. Recently I updated Etcher to 1.7.1 in arch linux and when I try to flash an ISO file I get this error message at the end: “Something went wrong . . . Cannot read property ‘message’ of null”. I flashed the same ISO with Rufus (Windows) without issues.
same happening here. cant find any solution
Under Ubuntu as well as in Windows Etcher recently throws this error …
Just tried with 1.7.0 and it works!
Welcome to the balena Forums.
Please could you provide details of exactly which ISO file you were trying to flash and what type/size of device you were using. This will help us to try and reproduce the issue here.
Thanks - Mark
It seems the problem has been reported here too.
So I signed up to just say I have the same problem. I thought it was my iso that I repeatedly redownload with md5. Same goes in windows. Though, I can boot to my usb.
I have the message cannot read property ‘message’ of null my version is 1.7.1 and I tried to flash ef981e841a0928b8dd164cda09db0e89 elementaryos-6.0-stable.20211130.iso
(the hash is a md5 hash)
Hi, we really appreciate everyone letting us know this is a recurring problem, we don’t have a solve yet but I wanted to let you all know that the issue has been raised internally and we are working on it.
It seems a fix has been committed for the next version
@tabas thanks for being alert, yes v1.7.3 should make the problem disappear.
