When apt asks for your password, use your PIN.

It was a little hard to find, but now that I've registered on the forums, it looks good.  Set aside a good chunk (30 minutes?+) of time for the data to load and set up/execute all the files.  Download may pause from time to time and say things like "missing file"  (or say nothing as it hides - as when it paused for 10 minutes at 95% while updating initramfs while mobian made a new pot of coffee) (and again at 99% at initramfs: generating /boot ...) but it WILL proceed after the coffee perks, and mobian makes a side trip to get cream and then sits down with a fresh cup.  BE PATIENT, and do NOT interrupt. 

THANK YOU, COFFEE FREAK!  +1  +1  +1  +1  +1  +1  +1  +1  +1  +1  (and +1 for humor! and gentle treatment of newbie linux folks)

To quit Terminal, for really new newbies, type "exit" <enter>.  To restart, go to the very top-right corner of your screen, touch the power icon, and choose "restart" or "shut down."

Awesomesauce! That sounds like a good time. With all that coffee I mean. Glad I could help. Smile
