I'm little bit confused, my setup:
Device: OnePlus5T (dumpling)
ROM: LineageOS for microG 17.1
Recovery: latest Lineage Recovery (20201222)

First thing, I don't get: the OTA updater suggest to update the same version I'm running on (LineageOS 17.1 from DEC 3).

When trying to update, I get error 21 and the message "failed to verify whole-file verification" along update aborted.

I installed lineage Recovery, with TWRP LOS would stuck in a bootloop.

I've read that I should turn of verification in the recovery. Lineage Recovery doesn't has this option (along many other features TWRP has).

My question: is it safe to flash TWRP now? Could I switch back to Lineage Recovery if LOS fails to boot with TWRP again or could it break my installation completely?

Any suggestions?

I do not use lineage recovery just makes problems .I use the twrp in the OP thread .

Normally you can install it via twrp or via terminal on PC
adb devices
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot devices
fastboot flash recovery recovery_image_name.img

But I would do the whole thing via the PC.

That the update continues to be displayed is normal.
Just ignore.

However, I use OrangeFox Recovery and have no problems with it

And here for oneplus 5

My knowledge on MicroG is rather limited. I can only find benefits that it is lightweight compared to GPM/GAPPS.

Are there any benefits in comparison with tracking services or would I then have to avoid micro-g and gapps alltogether?

Hello Exodusnick,

I have tried to install via ota, but still I get the signature verification failure, and there seems no option in the recovery (lineageos; not twrp) to install it anyways.
Can I sideload the by ADB the linked zip above without a loss my data on the phone?

Thanks for your help!

Is but strange with me it worked wonderfully via OTA . You can also download the build via the download link and then install via twrp or sideload.

Your data will not be touched
Thank you!
Maybe the problem occurs due to the recovery (lineageos) I installed?
For long term I would like to use OTA again. Before I upgraded 17.1 I had TWRP installed, may be I go back to that, and try it for future OTAs?
...
I found out and installed TWRP. Now I will wait for the next OTA.

These days orange Fox recovery has very good support and reputation. May be worth checking that out. TWRP seems to be a mix and match lately..

Yes, I use Orange Fox Recovery Download link I had posted here a few days ago .
Thanks, I installed OrangeFox recovery for a try.

I have installed lineageos for microg version
lineage-17.1-20210115-microG-cheeseburger.zip;
now I use use internal Updater and let it check for new updates, and it shows no new updates. But on the website I can find already two newer downloads.
Does anybody have the same behaviour/problem?

I just figured out that my ROM is not from lineage.microg.org,
but from los-legacy.de, - that will be the reason, because there is no update yet.
