  1. A huge THANKS. That is all that was needed. Sorry that this Linux newb didn't understand that option in armbian-config. I froze the u-boot and kernel and updates ran without any damage.
  2. Thanks very much for the help. I really appreciate it. As I said in my other reply, I am doing my best to comprehend all of the intricacies of Linux in general and how it relates to Armbian and the OPi PC2 specifically. I will try your suggestion, but not sure how/where I can do so. The only other Linux style environments that I have access to are a Raspberry Pi (locked into Retro Pi) and a Chromebox.

Maybe I am expecting too much. Again, forgive my ignorance of the Linux world. I am trying very hard to learn. The curve is steep when you've been Microsoft only for a 30 year career.

I typically install Armbian updates and reboot every few days. After installing an update a few days ago everything became corrupt and the board fails to fully boot. This was confirmed on the console. There is a fair amount of text. One of the first
