The new kernel just installed is:

Note the build date, almost 6 months ago.
If you uncomment the last line of
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ayufan-rock64.list you can get Ayufan's recent
pre-release updates. They work much better for me.
Also Ayufan has promised a new official release after the release of
Ubuntu Bionic Beaver which is due in a few days.

I used aptitude to upgrade 2 kernel files that pulled in 6 or 7 more. I
assume its trying to reboot, but did not close the two logins I had into
it, so they are locked up until I go out and to a powerdown reset I
expect.  Its nearly 2 am, and the door that gives me quick access to
where it is would wake the missus, so it can sit and stew in its own
juices till daytime. For a change, aptitude did not erase 90% of the
system according to the action trace it left on the konsole screen here.

And the trace ends there. I'll see if I can get it to reboot in the

Now, about the afu locale, the list file in /usr/lib, contains no en_US
entries.  And the locale shown on its own terminals, the first in some
list I've not found yet with grep, shows as aa_DJ?  And nothing I do
changes it. My logins from this machine show the correct en_US.XXX and
work as expected, but its own terminals orage and menu's are afu.

Maybe this will fix that...

Thanks Chris.

Selecting locales after "sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales" fixed the locales problem for me.

However I must admit that I am running the (Debian derived) Ubuntu Xenial Xerus not pure Debian. Worse it is on a (RK3328 based) Scishion V88 Piano TV box not a real Rock64 :( However I don't see why things should be worse with Debian Stretch on a real Rock64.

I hope I haven't misled you into bricking your Rock64 :(
(Luckily unbricking should be fairly easy.)
