initfs: update: handle no images to update

Notify the user if image wildcard expansion fails instead of printing
message about failing to find partition to flash.

The update script errors with the message that it can't figure out what
partition to flash for /run/initramfs/image-* if there are no images

Build Status


OpenBMC uses Yocto/Open-Embedded for a build system, which supports an out-of-tree build. It is recommended that you create an empty directory somewhere to hold the build. This directory will get big.

On Ubuntu 14.04 the following packages are required to build the default target

sudo apt-get install -y git build-essential libsdl1.2-dev texinfo gawk chrpath diffstat

On Fedora 23 the following packages are required to build the default target:

sudo dnf install -y git patch diffstat texinfo chrpath SDL-devel bitbake
sudo dnf groupinstall "C Development Tools and Libraries"

To start a build:

cd <builddir>
. <repodir>/openbmc-env
bitbake obmc-phosphor-image
