Hello. I have two RPi 1 B+ units loaded with Raspbian Linux 10 and BOINC 7.14.2. Neither are receiving work via Science United. Both are correctly connected as indicated by the --acct_mgr info command results below:

pi@RPi1BPlus02:~ $ boinccmd --acct_mgr info
Account manager info:
   Name: Science United
   URL: https://scienceunited.org/


I did quit and then join the account manager just to make sure of this. The results of a --get_state command are as follows:

pi@RPi1BPlus02:~ $ boinccmd --get_state

Both of these units used to get work, and nothing has changed as far as their configuration. Communication appears to be occurring since both devices are listed as computers in my profile.

I also have an RPi 3B loaded with Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS and BOINC 7.17.0; this device is receiving work.

It's possible that the projects have updated their applications, so they no longer work on those computers.

Perhaps you could remove them from Science United, connect them to BOINC, and then search for projects that have suitable work.

Maybe.
New app of Rosetta@Home, for example, runs only on Rasp4 with 64bit os.

There are complaints regarding the Asteroids ARMv6 app not working in their message forums. They recently updated all their apps.

The Einstein BRP 1.06 app has been broken since Raspbian Stretch almost 2.5 years ago. There is a version that works for ARMv7 (Pi2 and later) but nothing for the ARMv6 (Zero and Pi1).

Side question,
What's the difference between using 'Science United' (I believe is an account manager), and BAM with science projects?

With BAM!, you choose which projects you run.
With Science United, David Anderson chooses which projects you run.

Edit - forgot to add
With BAM!, you can participate in the BOINC community at each project - write on the message boards, provide or ask for help, send and receive private messages, make friends with other users. Fine tune your preferences at each project (which applications to run, which devices to use, whether to participate in Beta testing).
With Science United, you have no access to any of these things.

Les Bayliss, Good to know thank you; both are now receiving work via Science United from World Community Grid.
