<pre>Loading, please wait...</pre>
- Behaves weirdly. For example, your keyboard does not work or you cannot
connect to a network.

## Tails behaves weirdly if an automatic upgrade is only partially applied
Tails might behave weirdly if an automatic upgrade is only partially applied.
For example, your keyboard might not respond to key presses or you might
be unable to connect to networks.
To fix this problem:
### Mount your Tails system partition in another Linux system
1. Start in another Tails or in a Linux system such as Debian or Ubuntu.
1. Open <span class="application">GNOME Disks</span>.
1. Plug in your Tails USB stick that behaves weirdly.
1. If a prompt appears to unlock the persistent volume on your Tails
USB stick, click <span class="button">Cancel</span>.
1. Your Tails USB stick should appear in the left pane of
<span class="application">GNOME Disks</span>. Click on your Tails USB
1. In the right pane, click on the partition labeled
<span class="guilabel">Tails</span>. It should be listed as
<span class="guilabel">Partition 1</span>.
1. Click on the
<span class="button">[[!img lib/media-playback-start.png alt="Mount selected partition" class="symbolic" link="no"]]</span>
button to mount the Tails partition.
1. Click on the link in the right pane to open the Tails partition in the <span class="application">Files</span>
browser. The link should look something like
<span class="filename">/media/<span class="command-placeholder">username</span>/Tails</span>.
### Edit your <span class="filename">Tails.module</span> file
1. In the <span class="application">Files</span> browser, open the <span class="filename">live</span> folder.
Then open the file named <span class="filename">Tails.module</span>
with a text editor, for example, <span class="application">GNOME Text Editor</span>.
1. Add the line <span class="command-placeholder">x.x</span>.squashfs to the
end of the <span class="filename">Tails.module</span> file. Replace
<span class="command-placeholder">x.x</span> with the Tails version you are
upgrading to.
For example, if you are upgrading to version 3.8, you would
add `3.8.squashfs` to the end of the <span class="filename">Tails.module</span> file.
Your <span class="filename">Tails.module</span> file should look
something like this, with different version numbers:
1. Save the <span class="filename">Tails.module</span> file.
1. In the sidebar of the <span class="application">Files</span> browser, click on the
<span class="guimenu">[[!img lib/media-eject.png alt="Eject" class="symbolic" link="no"]]</span>
button on the <span class="guilabel">Tails</span> label to unmount the
partition. If your persistent volume shows in the sidebar, also click on
<span class="guimenu">[[!img lib/media-eject.png alt="Eject" class="symbolic" link="no"]]</span>
button on the persistent volume label.
1. Unplug your Tails USB stick.
Your Tails should now work properly.
