I tried after reset board. The Arduino IDE is run with sudo. Still get error message "Firmware Upgrade Error: mkdir".
BTY, the upgrade notification shows it will use image(782) to replace firmware(1). Thanks for your help.
We will try it with Ubuntu 12.04, we have been using 13.10 without issues.
Make sure the serial port is available (you should see a check next to it in the menu). You might need to reboot your PC if you can't get the COM port working. In addition, make sure that the USB light is on and that you've plugged your USB cable into the correct USB port. You must have the power cable plugged in (first) and then the USB cable.
My COM port works well and it can be found in /dev/ttyACM0. The Arduino 1.5.3 can also set port info. In upgrade process, version query is also successful. I used USB port near to network adaptor (Tagged "USBC") and it works well. I tried reboot PC and it does not work.
Anyway, thanks John.
I will find a 13.04 to try. Actually, I started with my Window 7 desktop. However, it cannot update Gadget Serial V2.4 port driver successfully. So I switched to Linux.
I am curious that in <Getting Started Guide> page 5 step 4 item 7 for drivers update, it says linux-cdc-acm.inf in hardware/arduino/x86/tools will be installed. Is this driver file correct for Windows?
Though I'm not Jorge and it's been a week since then Yes, that's a correct file - I used it without any problems to install the driver on my Win7 x64
The board we got is green color. I learnt from some colleague that the green color board is old, and the new Galileo board should be blue color. Is it ture?

Typically boards of a single revision will all have the same color, but when things get manufactured in large numbers, that is not always the case.
All Intel boards should have a board identifier built into the board. Here is mine from my Galileo board. The number G87173-204 (the last 3 digits typically indicate new revisions of the board)
If your board has a different number, it is a different revision.
I have an old development board (Kips Bay - engineering sample) that is green. The "Galileo" development board that was handed out at the Rome Maker Faire was blue. Where did you get your green board? Is it an engineering sample board? I am guessing that the green board, if it is a engineering sample, will need different firmware and will use a different IDE software than the blue Galileo boards. I will see if I can confirm that.
My one is blue, just like chofrock's one, the number ends with 204 too. And the sticker at the back says "Rev D, Typical".
Was this mkdir issue with old board revision solved?
I have a board with version G87173-203 and I am also running on firmware upgrade error: mkdir.
Can you please point me to the right firmware for board version 203?
On 1.5.3 install, I have sysimage_00782_capsulefull_noreset.cap.
Thanks and regards,
Got the old board to work with Adruino.
Firmware upgrade from Adruino GUI doesn’t work for first time on the old version. You need to manually upgrade the firmware as mentioned in “12. Manually update your board firmware (optional)” of the getting started guide.
But you will need a serial cable for the same (one with 3.5mm jack connecting to board and other side with DB9 and I got one made by following schematics mentioned in community)
Now board boots to Linux and I can see the logs from serial log.
Adrunio GUI upgrade now tells that firmware version on the board is matching.
