Are you using eMMC or SD card?
I think I've seen the same syntax error only when I upgraded to the latest u-boot from HardKernel where they implemented some changes for Kernel 5.4+ for device-tree-overlay support.
I haven't had time to check what syntax it complains about, I know the boot.ini from HardKernel works, but that might break parts of this image, as it's not using that particular u-boot or device-tree-overlay.
It also comes with a different version of u-boot.

My guess is that you maybe use a eMMC which had a different system on it previously?
So that might have messed with the u-boot.
Can you try flashing this image on an SD Card in case you have one available?

Yes, i buy two eMMc 128Gb preinstalled Linux from hardkernel, on board are Ubuntu 20.08 i guess. The one of eMMc i purge and write image with "dd"

From SD it start to boot, but then i see Mate and Kodi(after several reboots), and problem with little space on rootfs. I try run "Setup" from Desktop, but this script-menu seems to dont worked. I try "move rootfs to hdd" - it fail because "has not candidate to LVM2", and try "Setup OGST" it fail too.
So i will try manualy apt-get update but in the middle of the work of apt-get, an error came out that the space on rootfs ran out.
At the moment, I don't quite understand how this distribution works. Is this how it should work with limited space? Or did it have to expand to the full size of the microSD (which is 16Gb)? Or do I have the ability to somehow transfer the entire system to eMMC (which is 128Gb), and will I run into the u-boot problem again when trying to start from eMMC?

The image resizes itself on the first boot by default.
This may not work if you have both eMMC and SD card connected at the same time as it may instead try to resize the eMMC.
If you try the image make sure you only have one device connected either eMMC or SD card not both.
Without the resize there will not be enough space on the device to work correctly.

The image will work on SD and eMMC, but I think due to the fact that your eMMC had the images from HardKernel on it they use a different u-boot which doesn't currently work with this image.
And exchanging the u-boot may not be as easy.

I'll try to find out what syntax changed with the newer u-boot and if it's compatible with the older image, but that will take a while.

Yes, now it work. I do first boot without eMMc, then i just simple move /home to eMMc, and now system running on MicroSD but /home with ROMS on eMMc
That's more than enough for me at the moment.
