Issues with Mobian 20210314 (data and updates)
#1
Hello,

used for a while Plasma KDE (still too buggy, for me) and Phosh OS (working fine) and now decided to give Mobian (20210314) a try (on this forum, it is highly appreciated). So, flashed a SD with it. 
Unfortunately, data download never started working (although, I have the 4G symbol activated and four bars). Of course, set the APN.
Calling works fine, SMS works (but no audio signal and light blinking when I got the message) and WI-FI works as well but, oddly, using it, my phone is unable to download updates ("The following packages have unmet dependencies").

Any help for the two issues?

Many thanks.

Hi there - I would try get the mods to move this to the PinePhone/Mobian forum!

Under Settings, Mobile do you have Mobile Data enabled?

In general I don't get that with Mobian - it means apt has got its knickers in a twist which is a generic Debian issue you can ask Prof Duckduckgo about. But on the basis it is uncommon in Mobian I would recommend doing your download/flash again in case something is corrupt there.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Started Bionic minimal - now "groovy", Openbox desktop for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/f2fs/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced

Ops... wrong forum, sorry for the oversight.

Anyway, thanks dukla2000 for your answer and... yes, data enabled.

Asked Prof. Duckduckgo, before posting the tread: the steps suggested to fix the problem require an OS update, after the terminal work.
That's why I wrote about the updating issue in the same thread.

Think that the easier way for me is to reflash the SD and hope for the best.

Ciao

Have you read this mobian blogpost?
https://blog.mobian-project.org/posts/20...pam_issue/

There they write:
Quote:You will get some mysterious “Cannot update due to unmet dependencies” error in the software app if you try. So for the initial update, we recommend performing a manual update in the terminal (a great way to familiarize yourself with the terminal and Debian’s package manager called apt).
For this drop into the terminal King’s Cross (also called kgx, it has a subway logo). On the terminal issue:
Code:
sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade

sudo apt autoremove

That's great, actually, I'll take a note, for the future!

Anyway, after downloading/flashing my SD again, as suggested, everything is working fine.
The OS immage was corrupted, indeed.

Problem solved Smile

Thanks again for your help!

Ciao
