Short version. Etcher throws the error “something went wrong, If it is a compresssed image…” immediately after I click on Flash.
Details: I first started trying to flash to a Wyse 3040 (2gig, 8gig). I used xunbuntu (trial mode) and the first time I tried it worked great and it flashed from the HA url. But I saw that after I did a restore from my existing HA Rpi, that I had little memory left. So I thought I would install to SSD plugged into a usb. I got the above error. So I tried again to install to the internal memory again and got the error. I downloaded the file and used it directly. Nope. Tried unbunu and linux mint live. Nope.
I also have a Wyse 5060 (2 gig, 64 gig) and the same as above just trying to get in on the internal memory.
The above error comes about 2 seconds after clicking “Yes flash the disk”, as if the disks are not letting Etcher write the data. Do the partitions have to be created/formatted in a certian way?
I have installed Debian 11 and then HA on both Wyes, so I know both units work. This is driving me crazy.
Any help/hints are appriciated.
