Unable to upgrade Home Assistant core: it spins a long time, reboots, but still at old version

My HA is installed and running on Pi 3+ with HAOS.

When upgrades are available, I’ve always had to press the “upgrade” button about 3 or 4 times over a span of a couple of days (it takes maybe an hour to attempt, then reboot), but in the past it eventually would “stick.” But with the upgradefrom 2024.5.4 to 2024.6.1 (now 2024.6.2) it just won’t finish. I have been unable to locate any meaningful error messages. Tried searching through old Forum messages for others with this problem, but can’t find any help there either.

Any ideas?

I have not encountered this error myself but you may want to try increasing the Swap File Size to 2GB:
