4B/Buster - usb usb2-port1: Cannot enable. Maybe the USB cable is bad?

Fri Jul 12, 2019 4:55 am

Hiya,

Dmesg is constantly reporting :
usb usb2-port1: Cannot enable. Maybe the USB cable is bad?

Testing a thumbdrive out on each port seems to transfer files ok, and placing it into the top USB3 port stops the error until it is removed.
It doesn't seem to unmount gracefully from USB3 either.

I'm using an official 3B power supply, although I don't think this is relevant as there is no under voltage warning.

Is this a known issue with firmware, or am I just lucky?

That kernel is out of date. The current stable kernel is 4.19.75-v7+

Run sudo apt update; sudo apt dist-upgrade -y && sudo reboot to get to a current version. That will also get you the go faster but run cooler stuff.
