"Unable to download updates: The following packages have unmet dependencies:"
Happy :-) Flashed a new image to the eMMC and all is very well again. :-)
Used the instructions I found here https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?...ight=flash
And a flashing prog. called Etcher from Sourceforge.
The latest nightly seems pretty snappy compared to the version the phone shipped with and has quite a few other nice refinements - like network settings up where you can easily find it. Default encryption is gone, but that makes for a better first user set-up experience and can always be added later, I guess.

Note to anyone wanting to flash eMMC; 'jumpdrive' as referred to on the forum is a piece of software NOT a type of memory card from Lexar.
Just for clearance sake: apt-get or just apt if you prefer the apt, can handle such situations.
If you do just
[sudo] apt upgrade
it is only upgrading already installed packages. if some have new dependencies you can install them using
[sudo] apt-get upgrade --with-new-pkgs
or with
[sudo] apt-get dist-upgrade
. the exclamation around "sudo" means that this is only needed if you aren't root.
Thanks Cybercow.
Been using Linux for a couple of decades and have
managef to get by with very little terminal knowledge.
(no, "terminal knowledge" is not a medical condition)
No excuse now that my Pinephone will be on
the road with me.

As per this blog post it should be:
sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade
sudo apt autoremove

But I also saw and performed these ones, from their Troubleshooting page:
sudo apt-get install packagekit-tools
sudo pkcon repair
sudo pkcon get-updates
sudo pkcon update

My experience with Debian for more than 2 decades has proven me that you should be careful with "dist-upgrade", it can potentially break the OS since it installs literally every single update (even if it's conflicting for example), which is why I prefer to recommend "upgrade" instead.
I generally only use "dist-upgrade" when upgrading to the latest or next Debian release.

Good to know it represents a metro, didn't even know that.
