When discussing a problem make sure to provide full logs!

where did you get the .deb for the linux-image (5.10.21-meson64)?


Why didnt you used armbian-config (System -> Other -> Switch to other Kernel) to change the kernel/image?


When you did selfcompile the image via armbian-build-system....did you try to update the packages like u-boot, firmware and so on before the linux-image?

You can't install armbian kernels on the balbes150 TV box builds.  The file layouts are not compatible.  TV boxes are not supported, there are not upgrade paths for the kernels. (Maybe someday, but not today).  Also there are no builds that support the amlogic s9xx cpus after 2020-10-14 as the developer who was working on them dropped support for them at that time.
