0x87 Front-end lock failed

Good day,


Error: `0x87 Front-end lock failed` when decoder is updating.

I keep getting this error and having to send the decoder in for manual upgrade. But this happens every time there is a new upgrade available. It's one of many decoders at a guesthouse and a real inconvenience to guests when this happens.

I need to wait for it to boot and then press cancel on the upgrade screen before it tries to download and upgrade automatically. But there does not seem to be a way to cancel it permanently and it reboots every day at 3am and tries to do the upgrade again (and fails) unless someone cancels it.

Is there a way I can manually do the upgrade myself instead of sending it in every time?
