FS#3417 - /etc/config/luci seems to be corrupt, unable to find section 'main'

Supply the following if possible:
- Device problem occurs on
- Software versions of OpenWrt/LEDE release, packages, etc.
- Steps to reproduce


OpenWRT 19.07.4 on xRX200 rev 1.2 (BT Home Hub 5A) with all packages up to date.
After running the router for a while I’ll try to login to the page and get this error:
/usr/lib/lua/luci/dispatcher.lua:426: /etc/config/luci seems to be corrupt, unable to find section ‘main’

This would normally be accompanied with the 5GHz channel set to 149 (which is a paid-for channel in the UK).
Checking /etc/config/luci looks fine to me and sometimes service rcpd restart works but other times it leaves Luci in an unusable state.

Are you sure it's really running 19.07.4 and not an older version like 19.07.3?

There was a regression in libubox that could cause rpcd to fail to start, and it gives this kind of errors. See  FS#3177 

But this regression has been fixed in 19.07.4:
