I'm new to Debian. I've been using Arch for a while. This error occurs on my new RockPro64 when I try to run "apt update":

This error occurs when I try to install or remove any package:

I'm concerned about x86_64 in this error message. Am I using the wrong mirrors? Here's "/etc/apt/sources.list" file content:

deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ focal main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ focal main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ focal-security main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ focal-security main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ focal-updates main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ focal-updates main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ focal-backports main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ focal-backports main restricted universe multiverse

 

I've already installed openjdk-14-jre, openjdk-14-jre-headless and its dependencies on my system before. without errors. Java doesn't seem to work however. "java --version" command works properly but when I try to run any program then I get SIGSEGV (but I have 4GB of RAM!). I remember that I also got this (SIGSEGV) error before while running apt. Now it always returns this error but before it crashed with "segmentation fault". What's going on?

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

Files you are requesting doesn't come from Armbian repository. From Ubuntu - there is likely the problem. What have you installed?

 

Just openjdk-14-jre and it's dependencies (openjdk-14-jre, openjdk-14-jre-headless, java-common, ca-certificates-java). What are the correct mirrors I should have in /etc/apt/sources.list?

From Armbian perspective all this is third party. Try this:

Java is not my main problem. My main problem is that apt isn't working. Any command (like "apt update", "apt upgrade" or "apt full-upgrade") fails for some reason. Is there any way to fix it?


Perhaps DNS problem? Workaround is adding nameserver 1.1.1.1 to /etc/resolv.conf ... or there is some other network issue.

 

Or perhaps remove /var/lib/apt/list

No. It didn't change anything. I managed to fix "apt update" by clearing /var/lib/apt/lists/ directory. However "apt upgrade still don't work. It gives me such an error:

I never crashed APT to such degree so I am running out of ideas. Perhaps other will have it ...

 

Can you start from a clean image?

 

I would rather not do it because I have already configured a lot, but I think I will have to... I get tons of bugs. Tons of weird bugs. Including my first kernel oops:

Get another SD card and try ... from what you are reporting, we can't rule our hardware related issues.

 

Where we can help little. Also one quick tip is to slightly clock down CPU and set governor to ondemand or performance.

Ekh... I flashed this image again and... This same... I just logged via SSH, ran only 2 commands "apt update" and "apt upgrade", and here I have new error:

It's set to ondemand by default.

I couldn't recreate this problem by using the same image:

apt update

apt upgrade

finishes normally.

You have either broken SD card or broken board.

One of my previous errors:

[...]
Unpacking linux-libc-dev:arm64 (5.4.0-54.60) over (5.4.0-42.46) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /tmp/apt-dpkg-install-KeRyGj/124-linux-libc-dev_5.4.0-54.60_arm64.deb (--unpack):
 corrupted filesystem tarfile in package archive: invalid tar header checksum       <=================================
dpkg-deb: error: paste subprocess was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
[...]

 

This could also be a problem with the internet connection. However, the broken SD card would explain kernel oops and so frequent SIGSEGV when running various programs. I don't think I have a broken board, that would explain SIGSEGVs, but it wouldn't explain so frequent invalid tar header checksums that leaded apt to failure. Obviously, that would be the worst scenario.
