Zero w shut down during apt upgrade


#1

Hi!
My zero w always shut down whenever I try to upgrade the os (rasbpian jessie 17/04…) I tried different SD cards and different power supplies on both my pis without success.
Any idea what causes these issues? The power supply provides up to 1.5 A. Do I need more?! I have never experienced anything like this with my pi 3 using the same power supply…

Cheers
Daniel


#2

what does the process say, or log if it’s not possible to catch it as it happens? Could it be that you have no space left on the SD?


#3

If you’ve recently re-formatted an SD card for use with your new Pi, did you remember to expand the filesystem in the raspi-config menu? If your SD card is over 8GB big, you may need to expand your system so that it can update.


#4

The process just freezes completely, just like so:
26 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0 B/79.0 MB of archives.
After this operation, 4,548 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

Unpacking tzdata (2017b-0+deb8u1) over (2016j-0+deb8u1) …

And then it just freezes. Syslog give no info, you just see some arbitrary entry, and the next one would be info on starting up again (after I reconnect power). I had expanded my system to full capacity of 16 GB, 14 Gigs free…

[Update]
Okay, it seems to be the SD card. I monitored dmesg and eventually got this output:
