I'm trying to reinstall Raspbian Stretch Lite version to make a fresh install on my Rpi 2 B. I use to follow the every same steps everytime I do this;

sudo raspi-config //to expand file system 
reboot
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

the downloads end well then when it tries to install the packages this is what I've got:

There is nothing I do different from the other times... And I tried it with different SD Cards.

This time everything works but when it comes to the upgrade I got errors.

I'm completely lost so I asked for your advises. Thank you for reading, I hope someone will sort me out of this

  • What OS? You say "trying to reinstall the OS" - WHAT did you ACTUALLY do? – Milliways Mar 30 '18 at 23:08
  • I use Raspbian Stretch. my pi is running a homekit server as main function – doodoovane Mar 30 '18 at 23:09
  • DO NOT post detail in your question - NOT comments. "running a homekit server as main function" is NOT what YOU did - did you do a fresh install? What commands did you enter? – Milliways Mar 30 '18 at 23:12
  • Yes I made a fresh install as always. I flash my card using Etcher with official Raspbian image. Then the steps are: sudo raspi-config ===> expand file system reboot sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade and this is where I'm stuck – doodoovane Mar 30 '18 at 23:13
  • as always? do you do fresh installs regularly? why? – scitronboy Mar 30 '18 at 23:17
