Updated my OMV NAS to latest 2.X

It has been a while since I built my own NAS, it was running DEBIAN from the start but I've somehow installed OpenMediaVault somewhere between 2009 and 2015 :) It has been quite a long time since I last turned it on and it had OMV version 0.5.29. The last time I tried to turn it on was a month or so ago and it failed to start but somehow when my daughter asked if she could retrieve her old backup files, it started without a problem. When she was done with her tasks, I used the chance to update the OMV to the latest one, 2.X. Had few hiccup updating from 0.5 to 1.0 and then to 2.0 but everything was resolved (yes, who else did I turn to other than Uncle Google). After successful upgrade, I shut it down without any problem.

The problem came back this evening when my daughter said she need to copy few more files. Pushing the start button will start the fan/light for few seconds and it turned back off. Tried few times without success, changing power cable etc won't solve the probl…
