One question though, why does it take forever to update initramfs?
I started the update at 9:00 in the morning, and it got up to "update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-5.13-sunxi64" at 99% a few minutes later.
It's almost 16:00 now, and "update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-5.13-sunxi64" is still at 99%.

I just made the switch to bookworm from an older bullseye install 2 days ago. Everything was installed within 30-45 minutes. My PP is the UBports edition with the upgraded motherboard, Mobian running on SD card.

An entire day has passed, and it's still "generating" at 99%.
Last time I canceled that update pretty much destroyed the OS though.

Edit:
Went ahead and killed the update process, removed the lock files, and did a "sudo dpkg --configure -a".
Now it finished "generating" after just a few minutes.
Wish I had thought of doing so before though.

At least it worked! I hate being in that position where if you cancel something it is likely to break your system but it is also taking hours when it should take minutes.

Just a Note, or observation,
  I have noticed when Mobian is in "Deep Sleep"

If you give the power button a quick jab,  nothing  '"appears to happen"'.

BUT  then wait about 4 seconds and try again,  and your lock screen will appear quickly.

While it does appear to start almost instantly when a call or a new text comes in.

Starting from deep sleep using the power button can take a few seconds.

So don't keep jabbing or holding the power button,  you may actually damage your installation, (then you would scream faulty software)
