Hi Basil,

 

I ran your script sequence from the previous note-

sudo su

apt-get update

apt-get install --fix-missing

apt-get dist-upgrade

 

As requested, here is the console output from that session:

The above obviously did not change the outcome of an attempt to install synaptic (tried again anyway). Then when running “sudo apt autoremove” afterward, dpkg still borks with an error code (2) – it is apparently unhappy because “ 'rpi-eeprom-images' contains empty filename”:

This is getting off the beaten DRAWS track, so tell me if you don’t want to go there…

 

Thanks for trying to help.
