    Is this running on raspbian with a desktop?? That is a bad idea...

    I understand where you are coming from but let me explain why I ended up with a desktop so hopefully a better setup will result from our conversation that will be usable for other OMV beginners too.


    1) my linux command line skills are maybe 2-3 on a scale of 10 (=noob), therefore I spend hours searching for a command that solves a given issue quite frequently. This is much easier addressed with a browser readily available on the system being worked on.
    2) this is my 'development/integration' system, I've a second 'production' system that is build from raspbian lite (without desktop)
    3) currently both use 8Gb SD cards but I've 32 or 64 Gb SD card available.
    Issues:
    1) writing an image to them took such a long time that I preferred to use the small sized ones
    2) I didn't see an easy to use solution for creating a backup image file from an SD card regularly.
    Instructions at rpi doc are written for an expert, cover only cloning to another SD card but not HDD and mention nothing about a solution that would work on Windows (the common work environment for 80% of new users)


    Maybe there are better approaches to overcome these issues?


    update: while reading OMV 'Getting started" documents in above provided URL, I just found "The Cloning Process for USB thumb drives and SD-Cards on a Windows PC"

    Had to be done via the cli sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get full-upgrade but the changes seem to be more in reference to raspbian although there is a new buster lite.

    yes this is basically what I did, but instead of " full-upgrade" I had used " upgrade" which consumes more disc space



    What is the output of:
    dpkg -l | grep -v ^ii

    I was too fast in clsoing it.

    getting below error after applying the latest raspbian 20200205 update, any suggestions?
    I've posted it on raspberrypi.org forum too
