Hello,

i did an update of the system (apt dist-upgrade), and after the system doesn't start anymore.

 

I use internal MMC, so I tryed to use last Armbian buster (Armbian_21.02.3_Helios64_buster_current_5.10.21.img) from sd card and it works.

I mounted the MMC, fsck and finally chrooted into it and did an apt update and dist-upgrade,

 

I atach the console log, the system hangs on Starting Kernel.

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

Can you try to boot from the SD card again, mount the eMMC and edit the /boot/armbianEnv.txt to increase verbosity (defaults to 1 which means less verbose, maximum value is 7).

Please then post the logs.

I found the errors! The /boot/armbianEnv.txt was corrupted, I replaced the file using that one from sd card, and then changed the UUID of the roor partition.

Nicely done. Corruption of the armbianEnv.txt file is one of the remaining nagging issues on the Helios64.

I suspect it is linked to the system instability but I've not been able to pinpoint the exact issue so far.

When I had it happen to me during an update it added/rewrote some text and added gibberish(special characters).  I was able to edit it to match some of the examples and put in my UUID and it booted right up.  I unfortunately don't have any screen shots or anything to show.
