The image file I am using is quite old. How old exactly I am not sure, because this image I have inherited from previous developer.
I have learnt that running:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
Kills the Raspberry Pi. I checked memory consumption with htop, and at the last moment the system was responding I had 10 megabytes left (including swap). Then everything went readonly, the upgrade crashed, not a single command was working (I typed ls, ls command not found, cat, cat command not found). I had to reboot.
I increased swap size to 512 megabytes, and it seemed it helped a little, but Raspbian crashed on later into the installation.
I would like to hear from you guys:
- Did you have a similar error?
- How do I solve it?
- Is there a way to install only some packages and not all of them in one go?
Typical stdout from
apt-get upgrade looks like this:
