openHABianPine64: fatal: bad object HEAD

Concerning the Pine64 implementation.
I have tried to update the system using sudo openhabian-config. It fails on apt with unresolved dependencies(?).
I tried the advised apt-get -f install to no avail.

Then I resorted to re flashing the SD card. Since I have backups and I know how to use them…

This also fails with
Updating repositories and upgrading installed packages... FAILED

So I am lost. Anyone willing to guide me? For starters… Is the Pine image still functional?

If you are trying to install snapshots, they are broken at the moment.

Thanks Vincent. Do have suggested path for me to follow? I followed the steps in the config tool which lead to unresolved dependencies and then the steps in the documentation which also fails.
The only thing I have is a backup, running OH2.3.1 and is not updating anymore. I’d like to progress some day.

Would switching to RPi ensure a smoother ride?

I would do a fresh debian install for your platform and then add openHABian on top or a simple apt install of openHAB.

What is exactly broken? Builds 1534 and 1535 work pretty well for me.

Cool, back on track, then

I really appreciate your help but I will not do a full install myself. I have enough experience with linux to know that will lead me into days of fixing problems. This is not very 2019…

Please help a little more with getting my Pine up to date.

I have restored the Pine to the working version of september 2017 (my backup). I have fixed package repository location for grafana which has apparently changed.

But apt-get upgrade keeps failing on the Grafana package:
