Watch out for your system clock , when upgrading.
Somehow (on my PP CE edition) it FSCK's up and TimeWarps to year 2115 , happpend 3 times now.

If the sysclock is that much wrong , then the repos used has expired , and gives an error.

*** Update fails

root@mobian:~# apt update

Why doesn't the OS do a hwclock -s , during boot ??


/Bingo

Well a dist-upgrade , just installed this one :
Get:1 http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye/main arm64 systemd-timesyncd arm64 246.1-1 [124 kB]

Will that solve the TimeWarp ? , or just keep the clock sync'ed like NTP ?

Yes, you should definitely upgrade mobian-* as they will replace systemd-timesyncd with chrony, which is way better at keeping the system clock in sync.
I think 'sudo apt upgrade mobian-base' (maybe followed by another dist-upgrade) should be enough.

No 'time' problem when running 'Nightly Build' releases.

Remember to do all the 'region & Language' fill-in the blanks caused this problem before.

Well that : sudo apt upgrade mobian-base
Did not go verry well.

The upgrade went fine , but the following update/upgrade killed the ssh server , and Kings-X showed it hang in dpkg install "some account stuff"

I waited like 20 min , still hanging.

Decided to reboot , but then the phone booted until the "Console screen" where it shown tty01 , and mobian login.
Never started the GUI or showed a keyboard.

I could ping the ip , and connect via ssh.
But never logged in via ssh , as it asked for pwd , but never got further , just hang in the ssh login screen.

I had no alternative but to :
Install the latest nightly on my 32GB SD
Resize the root partition w. gparted to "32GB"
Insert & boot.

I had hoped , NOT to have to do custimizations once more.
Especially because i have  2 WiFi AP's , and mobian does NOT like that (asking for pwd all the time).

I found & imlemented a trick here
https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=10966

And have to do that again , plus the "Static MAC" for getting the same DHCP and a bit more stuff.

Well i like the way Mobian is going, and it is 2 month since i last did a full SD reinstall ..

I just need Signal in order to make this my primary phone, is anyone pushing/begging Whisper ???

Thanx goes to all involved developers/resources Cool

/Bingo - Who's off to customize the phone again

I understand everything must be set-up again with a 'fresh' install, and that can take some time.
However it will not be as 'patched-up' as an older updated & upgraded install ?
* especially this time, since the clock system has been completely replaced.
But that's just my opinion.
