Until yesterday my Guruplug+ was running fine with a miniSD card and an active, external USB HUB. A usb-2-serial converter, a harddisk and a usb stick were connected to this external hub without any problems.
Then I did a apt-get update and upgrade because I want to install etherwake package. This worked fine as well.

But after a reboot the plug does not recognize the miniSD card nor the devicey on the external hub. Networking is still ok. The dmesg output will follow. At the moment I do not have an idea whats going wrong, I have the suspicion that the apt-get upgrade installed some new packages to my plug, that do not fit very well.

lsusb shows only one entry instead of several:
root@sbeplug:~# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Do you have any idea what's going wrong here or what I can check?

Exactly same problem but i have a sheevaplug.
I had everything working fine - many devices detected on my belkin usb hub no problem, yet while messing around with setenv in UBOOT I did a resetenv by accident and lost all my UBOOT settings. I reconstructed enough to make the plug boot OK from the guide on this site, but now I get the same error message as you.
I also installed a few massive packages on the plug with aptitude.
I have only rebooted 3 times to try to correct this so it may be that the usb start etc.. in UBOOT is the issue here in that its notoroius for not detecting USB devices, or it may be missing a UBOOT enviromental setting

My Usb hub - belkin F5U404 (powered).
This hub, which was working - been right through UBOOT enviromental settings, setting them back to what they should be.

But still no luck in enumerating devices on the usb via

Marvell >> usb start, usb reset, usb tree no matter how many times i do it.

If I plug in my WD MyBook HDD and remove the hub, its detected.

Obviously there is no operating system at this level which removes any possibility of aptitude conflicts etc...

Its either the hubs faulty or the sheevaplug is.

Well well well - the brand new Belkin hub bought from Tesco is the culprit. Lasted all of 1 day working. Tested it on my other computer and still nothing.
Luckly, the sheevaplug is fine.

I'm assuming you have either labeled your USB devices in /etc/fstab or used their UUIDs. Leaving them as /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2 etc can lead to problems on rebooting, since they may remount in a different order -- which can happen on a hub. Maybe not your problem, but it doesn't hurt to do this.

I think the best way to upgrade Debian (assuming that's what you're running) is to do:
#apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
Then check to see what apt will do before saying "yes." Does it want to remove a bunch of things? That may be a bad idea; better hold off. On the other hand, if it looks clean, the upgrade should go well. If you think you've already had an upgrade or package conflict, try:
#apt-get install -f
Then apt will either "fix" dependency problems or report errors.

I use this process on my sidux (debian sid) machines, and it works well. It's also been working fine on the SheevaPlug running Lenny. On the other hand, Ubuntu might be different even though it's Debian based. If anyone knows more exactly about this, please comment.
