What do you mean by "initial update" and "updates"? Software app? Pacman command? Should I be using different pacman flags than "-Syyu"?

Bingo! I will use that resource in the future, thanks.

I was hoping frequent upgrades would deliver that "sweet spot", but I was also checking the reliability of full system upgrades by package. Arch had a good run through May and early June.
In the meantime I decided to try Mobian-Phosh again.

* Stuck with an even earlier version of Firefox in ESR
* Battery life seems comparable to other distributions (contrary to previous experience on PP circa six months ago)
* Better usability in Phone app - proximity to face toggles display
* 2 successful upgrades by Software app (no more manual full system upgrades from command line for now), including one today
    * In between, unresolved dependencies prevented Software app from upgrading anything, but dependencies were eventually resolved

So I am happy with Mobian.

grinzie: What I mean by initial update is directly after the initial flash, then reboot, when ready do a pacman -Syu as the initial update (if applicable). After that install apps that you like ie, Libreoffice etc and then reboot, do another pacman -Syu to update new apps (again as/if applicable). Check the device out and if it fits your requirements and performs properly - DONT TOUCH IT !!!   Big Grin
