Is there a MMC upgrade instruction from debian-mate to manjaro factory (20.06)?
#1
Hi all,

Is there a clear instruction how to upgrade an 1st batch Pinebook Pro with original (Debian-Mate) OS on MMC to the new factory Manjaro or 20.06?
I've already tried manjaro 20.02 and 20.06 on SD and there are fine, so I like to update it to MMC to free up the SD slot.

Another option would be to install it on the SSD and boot from MMC to SSD, but I haven't found a real clear up to date instruction yet.
Or can we have a multiboot bootloader on MMC?

Regards Paul

That's easy-just download the Manjaro MicroSD to EMMC installer from here: https://osdn.net/projects/manjaro-arm/st....06.img.xz, flash it to a MicroSD card, put it into your Pinebook Pro, and follow the on-screen instructions, which will guide you through installing Manjaro to the EMMC. It's really easy, and I have actually done it multiple times. Hope this helps!

Hi I tried that one too, I installed it on SD and it only "installs" on SD, not on MMC. And it has the same filename and size as the SD installer. I however seen that previous versions has a special eMMC file (like  Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-pbpro-20.04-emmc-installer-20.04.img.xz) which isn't there (yet?) for the 20.06 files.

You can also install 20.04 and do the upgrade with the package manager.
There is no need to keep installing every new version.

I tried that yesterday and (after some hassle) succeeded Smile

But it took some effort:
I had to install the 20.04 emmc version to SD (although 20.04.19 and 20.06 exist for SD only).
https://osdn.net/projects/manjaro-arm/st....04.img.xz

Then it hangs and you need to press ESC to enter the menu (found somewhere in the of forums).
Like at https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=9929

The it just installs and works, although outdated.

So I tried to update with the packagemanager but that hangs on a bug in the 20.04 archive,
but that is also a known issue and I found a pacman command to update with overwrite.
Code:
pacman -Syyu --overwrite /usr/lib*/p11-kit-trust.so

Now finally I got an up to date manjaro (I think).

Now Release info:
cat /etc/lsb-release
