I've /never/ not gotten at least a P100 after five attempts immediately after each other. But perhaps try waiting an hour and then do the Factory Reset thing.

I have 2 that are running that same exponent again. The second started ~35.6% again, just like the first, same as yesterday. It is at 88% and I will be going offline with this laptop before it hits 100. At this rate, it will never get done during a single session.

Groundhog day, yet again.

Weird. Sorry about this. I'll have some cycles to drill-down on this tomorrow.

I was able to stay connected long enough for it to complete. It shows as credited.

OK... I've *finally* seen an example of this happening with one of my own instances. And, as inferred, it is because of the cron sub-system not being installed.
Code:
20200331_145125: DEEP: AptA: Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...
Suggested packages:
  anacron logrotate checksecurity exim4 | postfix | mail-transport-agent
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  cron
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 25 not upgraded.
Need to get 68.8 kB of archives.
After this operation, 253 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Get:1 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic/main amd64 cron amd64 3.0pl1-128.1ubuntu1 [68.8 kB]
Fetched 68.8 kB in 1s (108 kB/s)
dpkg: error: cannot access archive '/var/cache/apt/archives/cron_3.0pl1-128.1ubuntu1_amd64.deb': No such file or directory
Weirdly, I have *never* had this problem with my SSH Reverse Tunnels package, which uses the exact same command to install cron.

Does anyone who regularly works with Ubuntu understand what's going on here? It looks like the package was downloaded successfully, but drilling down on the filesystem shows the package is in fact not where it should be.

Now, to figure out how to recover from this rare edge case... Just retrying the install may not be enough, since both the CPUWrapper script and the CPUPayload both attempt to install and launch cron.

If you are using aptitude or apt-get to install packages, be sure to do:

aptitude update

or

apt-get update

Before installing any packages.

Thank you!!! That almost certainly explains the issue.
