I bought a new raspberry pi zero w. I flashed the raspbian lite image on a sd-card, the pi booted normally. But when I try to update it with

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

I get the following error

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get update

Its happening for both, update and upgrade, even when installing packages. I also tested the with my raspberry pi 3B+ and the same sd-card and usb cable/power adapter, there works everything without errors.

Does anybody has an idea what causes this or better how to fix it?

Possible Solution?: The first time I tried two (different) 32GB SD-Cards. I just found another 8GB and tried it with this one. And guess what, everything worked on the first time. Just to be sure I flashed a 32GB card again and it did not work. As far as I know the pi can handle 32GB cards. Seems strange to me.

This is a typical behavior I have seen with a "weak" SD Card. It sometimes works or not maybe depending on different hardware because of very small different electrical characteristics. You wrote that you always use the same SD Card. I suggest to try with another SD Card to exclude that's not the reason.

  • I edited my question. You are partly right. I tried two different 32gb cards, both with the same behavior. I then found a 8gb one and gave it a try. It is from the same manufacturer as one of the 32gb cards, but it worked on the first try – Timo Aug 13 at 18:54
