No able to upgrade new flashed Pi

Sun Aug 01, 2021 11:06 am

Hi,

I have a problem updating my newly flashed Pi4

I did

Code: Select all

 sudo apt update 
And it worked fine. (37 packages can be upgraded...)

So I did

Code: Select all

sudo apt upgrade
It started out fine

Now it is stuck at 44% not doing anything.

So I thought that I might have made a mistake while flashing or something else went wrong.

I flashed the SD card again downloaded the Lite OS (I don't need Desktop as I am connected via SSH) and now it got stuck at 48%

I can't figure out what the problem is. The LED code (7 short flashes) tells me "Kernel image not found". How can this happen while updating? This is not my first time using Raspberry Pi and I am sure that I did nothing wrong while flashing the SD card and I tried using another SD card getting the same result.

full-upgrade recommended over upgrade:

If its a kernel update on a slow SD card there is a very slow section in the the upgrade, got me a bit worried on a Pi0 the other day.
