At first I tried to run all as non-root user and use sudo ;-) Later I reverted to root user, which is more convenient and easy (even though less secure ;-) Error(s) "Authorization failure: -155" were encountered in root mode :-( unfortunately.
2) Message boards : BOINC client : Boinc on ARM (Message 84233)

Post:
I wanted to run some BOINC project on my mostly idle router Turris Omnia (CPU: Marvell Armada 385, dual-core 1.6 GHz; open source Turris OS, based on OpenWrt - for more see https://doc.turris.cz/doc/_media/omnia/omnia_datasheet_1gb_rgb.pdf).

I installed Ubuntu Xenial in container and BOINC there. SFSG.

Because I encountered repeated errors "Authorization failure: -155" issuing many boinccmd commands, I removed BOINC installation from the container and reinstalled it. But this error persisted even after purging and reinstalling BOINC!

In next attempt first boinccmd was OK, but next commands ended again with the same error - even though this command was OK,
boinccmd --lookup_account https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/ `mail` `password`

following commands were not:
boinccmd --project_attach https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/ `account`
Authorization failure: -155
boinccmd --get_state
Authorization failure: -155


Moreover, in latest attempt - purging BOINC from container, and even removing /var/lib/boinc-client directory - boinccmd --lookup_account command eneded with the same error "Authorization failure: -155" :-(

Could anybody please advice?

I'd like to know whether Ubuntu Boinc client will run on ARM CPU (Armada 38x). I tried to search community message boards to no avail. Thanks for help.

It would be nice if there was a possibility to upload partially completed task - I repeatedly lost quite a lot of CPU time being not able to meet task deadline :-( As retired person I can't allow PC run round the clock any more :-( Moreover, I prefer to use tablet prior PC for reading mail, browsing topics of my interest on web etc... thus I power PC only sparsely nowadays ;-) It's critical when I have to leave home for longer time (for holiday, e.g.) and there is no possibility to finish computing in time.

Similarly, I'd like to be able to download tasks of some size only (for the same reason).
