Re: Used space from the upgrades

As some packages are replaced they are not immediately removed so one has to use the "apt-get autoremove" command to remove them. There are also some system directories that become replace that can be removed. I suggest the one makes a backup of their SD card before removing software or directories ...

Re: ntfs problem

Unless you are a root user, you must use the "sudo" command to install that package or any package.

"apt-get" is the command to update and upgrade raspbian, so I find it hard to believe it does not work.

It appears one includes the Compute Module 3 (94AC8776) while the other is only the module board (91AC6639). The difference in price is just about the cost of the Compute Module 3. There is also the Compute Module 3 Lite.

Before removing them I would make a system backup and verify that it boots your system and then delete the kernels and see what happens.

You have to find the bottle neck in the long string of connections and eliminate that route.

Re: Pre installed NOOBS for rasp pi 4 ?

Glad to hear that. Now you should run the update and upgrade commands.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Always updates that need to be applied. I would then make a backup of the SD card.

Re: Update freeze up errors

Which version of raspbian are you running?

It looks like you are running jessie. The most current OS is buster. This means not only has jessie been archived but so has stretch.

I would not run the "dist-upgrade" option without making a backup the the SD card.

If you had started with a new SD card, then you could have copied you user files from the damaged SD card. In the future, backup your user directory on a removable device like a USB memory stick.

Raspbian has the best support of the many OSs that can be installed on a Pi. The Pi does not have Google Chrome but instead uses Google Chromium which support use of your Google ID and your Google settings and bookmarks.
