hmm I've updated the image recently.. let me try it and I'll report back if I can reproduce it or not.
Did it work anytime since last month for you or was it always like this?

I've looked at /var/log/history
It did update, quite at the beginning.

Thanks a lot for this image. As I've been having issues with upgrading it to stretch, but I have found a way, here is a quick post. (A typical symptom of this problem is to have apt update stuck at "working". For some reason it does not report /usr/lib/apt/methods/https has crashed.)

Install from scratch works well, and at this point /usr/lib/apt/methods/https also works. Updating the packages using jessie also works.

If I replace jessie by stretch in the apt/sources.list (and subdirectories), after the update /usr/lib/apt/methods/https segfaults. It's interesting to see that the upgrade to apt-transport-https is held back, but doing a dist-upgrade does not fix it, it still segfaults.

To get it back to working, I did this:

Code: Select all

apt remove apt-transport-https
apt autoremove
apt install apt-transport-https
I now can update from the repository.

Maybe I grabbed the wrong one. When did you upgrade and where exactly do I get the proper image?

To be honest I'm not so sure anymore.
I've updated the XU3/XU4 image, but maybe not the other images.
I still haven't had time to test it yet, but the latest image should always be on the first post for downloading.
I'm also not sure if I will be able to update the image this month, as Christmas is around the corner and I will be visiting my parents for a while.

Thank you so much! I was about to give up on my U3 and order a new board and then I found this image.
Worked like a charm!
Thanks again!

glad you like it.. there's tons of software available for the U3 available for that image.
try apt-cache search odroid to see what i'm talking about.
If you have issues with the image let me know.

Hey meveric

Kudos for this Jessie image. I'm into Debian and its derivatives (trying to avoid Ubuntu as much as I can as I prefer minimal stuff) and thanks to you I got my U3 on Jessie which I managed to upgrade to Stretch. It's quite a shame that there's no more support for the U3 which has such interest (judging by the posts online and also the number of posts in the Hardkernel forums).

Not sure what the implications of running Stretch on the U3 with the old kernel 3.8.13.30 rather than 4.x really are in terms of security & performance... But looking at the attempts by many it seems like it is a tough task to get new kernels working on this good old board.

Cheers & Keep Up the good work... Hardkernel should give you a medal! ;)

I still supply software for Debian Jessie, which should run fine on the ODROID U3.
So it's not entirely dead yet.
Debian Stretch normally requires Kernel 3.16 at minimum as there are some syscalls that will not work without it and you will see many entries in /var/log/syslog cause of the missing syscall with Kernel 3.8.
I know there are some people already using Kernel 4.x (or even 5.x) for the Exynos 4 series of ODROIDs.
But I haven't had time to investigate.
Wished I had, as the board Exynos 4 series is still one of my favorite boards, and some of them I still use today.
