I have been going round in circles on this for months (spend an hour or two crash crash crash, then come back to it weeks later), and can only assume hardware error by this time, having tried several sd cards, multiple light installs and most recently a high end data profiled card.
The zero fails every time on apt upgrade or any other even slightly ‘weighty’ install and even a gentle minor update from a fresh light install.
I am always running this headless with the latest light version.
I have tried several power supplies and using various iterations of usb and soldered direct power connectors, including the smoothest of 5v via more than one ATX power supplies.
I bought this zero sometime ago from pimoroni and have had this issue from the start, yet with always so much else on I have taken a stop start approach.
So any trouble shooting tips and or suggestions very very very welcome.
thanks in advance
