The issue continues for me.
is not found.
I tried every suggestion here, even adding the .htaccess.
But I really don't understand what "media directory being out of date" means. I already copy files from a working version into the website.
1. Open up app/etc/di.xml find the path “Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Symlink” and replace to “Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Copy”
2. reload page it will work great!
On Ubuntu 16.04, using apache2 I was also facing same issue.
Activated the mod_rewrite module with
sudo a2enmod rewrite
and restartd the apache with
sudo service apache2 restart
My issue resolved.
You need to make sure you have all the .htaccess file in the right locations for this to work.
There are .htaccess file in:-
Just copy them from a previous installation and then it should work.
