I used the setup-odroid which comes with Debian-Stretch-1.0~RC2-20180403-XU3-XU4 and immediately after update - upgrade I used setup-odroid (because I experience the 'card stuck in ...' error). It runs to completion, but the /boot/boot.ini is not correctly set:
it contains

setenv bootrootfs "console=tty1 console=ttySAC2,115200n8 root=UUID= rootwait ro net.ifnames=0"

with nothing set for the UUID.
in consequence the system does not start again.

(suggestion- it would be simpler for debugging if not a LVM but just the partition would be used, then the correct UUID would be accessible with blkid)

The latest version of setup-odroid uses /dev/mapper/hdd-root instead of UUID, but you have to update the system first before you use it.

Code: Select all

apt update && apt upgrade && apt dist-upgrade
Although the bigger question is why UUID is completely empty it might have encountered another issue, probably the process did not work at all (already existing partitions or something like that).

Using standard ext4 partition has other drawbacks.. for example that you can not change the partition size on the fly, that's why I opted for LVM instead.
