Raspbian for non-RPi doesn’t receive upgrades except packages. Since this is probably Jessie based, even packages are not getting updates anymore.

Better try this:

Preparation Make sure you have a good & reliable SD card and a proper power supply. Archives can be uncompressed with 7-Zip on Windows, Keka on OS X and 7z on Linux (apt-get install p7zip-full). RAW images can be written with Etcher (all OS). Boot Insert the SD card into the slot, connect a cable to your network if possible or a display and power your board. (First) boot (with DHCP) takes up to 35 seconds with a class 10 SD Card. Login Log in as: root Password: 1234. Then you are prompted to change this password (US-Keyboard setting). When done, you are asked to create a normal user-account for your everyday tasks.

Chromium on arm is currently broken. we made a workaround, an update to latest working one … apt update and upgrade and it will work.

Okay cool, I did a update + upgrade and Chromium is now working which is really great thank you and I am loving Armbian with desktop it great, again thank you
