You should read my posting in Github:
User bleckdeth has made a simple patch at 16.03.2021.

It works perfect but you have to make it after every LOS Update because LOS overwrites the boot image :-(
Thank you the Magisk is working now!

No, that's not weird. Your picture explains it all.

This is the lineage recovery, not the TWRP. It might work, but I never tested it. So I guess now you tested it ;)
Please flash the TWRP.

If you don't see something like that:
View attachment 5435123
the lineage recovery is installed. The image above shows how TWRP looks like.

The reason for that is (most likely) that you enabled an option that updates/installs the lineage recovery (effectively replacing the TWRP) with every OTA update. This is (in our case) unwanted behaviour.
So the way to go now would be:
  1. Disable this option (somewhere under developer options I think. Maybe @MSe1969 could jump in here. Else I'll have another look in the evening.)
  2. Flash the TWRP
  3. Verify it is the TWRP
  4. Check updating again
Thanks so much! It finally worked. Also thanks to @MSe1969 for pointing out where this setting 'update recovery' is located. It somehow enabled itself once after disabling it but finally I was able to install the October update.
Thanks for your great support and patience!

The "Recovery" should change to "LOS Recovery" to make this clear because it is not the TWRP recovery.
Whilst I agree to your point - I don't see the urge to fork the Updater app just for changing a label. We would have to also translate this into at least the major languages, to let many people benefit... "Cosmetics", if you ask me...

Z1 compact get android 12? This phone can run 12?
Before even starting to consider spending any time on 12, there are for us some prerequisites to be fulfilled. E.g. "LineageOS has started to provide official 12 builds" for any device.
Alone that requirement is anticipated - looking at the previous cycles - to be fulfilled earliest January 2022, but probably even February.
There are more things than that, not going too much into details. So only after that 1st prerequisite is met, we will be able to try finding out, whether this is possible and feasible (which still does not necessarily mean, that there will be a 12 build at all...)

Which Gapps flavor do you use? Pico or Nano as recommend? Or any larger bloat flavor, which is not recommended? Can you produce a log? How much space do you have free on your Internal Storage?

Maybe we understand something different from "fresh install".
I just tried to reproduce your problem on my side. I did the following:
  1. wiped /data, /system and all caches (I'd suggest you to also wipe the internal storage to be completely on the safe side)
  2. installed
    1. lineage-18.1-20211013-UNOFFICIAL-signed-amami.zip
    2. open_gapps-arm-11.0-pico-20211021.zip
  3. reboot
  4. set up google account
  5. Download and install Chrome and a couple of other apps.
I had no issues at all.
Given the fact that no one else here had issues with that before, I'd guess something on your side is going wrong.
Please check the above mentioned steps.

    This thread aims at providing LineageOS 18.1 builds for the Sony Xperia Z1 compact with current security patches.
    You can consider this thread as a successor of our LineageOS 17.1 thread, where you may also find some useful information.
    This is the joint effort of 115ek and MSe1969 (contributions welcome).

    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    /*
    * Your warranty is now void.
    *
    * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. Hard & a lot.
    *
    */

    We offer two build variants:
    A. Standard LineageOS 18.1 build
    This build flavor aims at providing LineageOS 18.1 "as is" with most recent security patches.
    If you want to install Google Apps (GApps) you have to use this build variant.
    You could install additional Google Apps if you want to. This has to be done directly after the lineage installation BEFORE the first boot.
    The smaller the package, the better in terms of performance. (None is of course the most performant). If you want "Okay google" support you need at least nano. Else I'd recommend pico.

    Downloads:
    OpenGapps
    BitGapps
    MindTheGapps (mirror)

    B. Pre-installed microG build variant with additional security patches
    For the security/privacy focused (more details about below feature list, see here)
    • Pre-installed microG and F-Droid same as the LineageOS for microG project
    • Pre-installed AuroraStore
    • eSpeak TTS engine (FOSS TTS solution)
    • Bromite as default browser
    • Additional security hardening features listed below
    • Cloudflare as default fallback DNS (instead of Google)
    • Privacy-preferred default settings
    • Optional blocking of Facebook- and Google-Tracking (Settings - Network & Internet)
    • Optional disable captive portal detection or choose from various providers (default is GrapheneOS and not Google; Settings - Network & Internet)
    • Increased max. password length of 64
    • No submission of IMSI/phone number to Google/Sony when GPS is in use
    • Default hosts file with many blocked ad/tracking sites
    • Privacy-enhanced Bromite SystemWebView
    • Extra control of sensor access for additionally installed user apps (Special access under app permissions)
    • Firewall (control internet access per app - under Trust)
    • Constified JNI method tables

    FAQ
    What recovery system to use?
    Please use this TWRP if you want to use OTA updates and/or encryption.

    What about root access?
    Root isn't included per default (except root over adb, but it's off by default).
    If you want to gain root access to your apps use magisk (everything > 20.4 is broken):
    ANT+ isn't working?
    You need the 2 apps:

    afterwards setting proper permissions is essential!
    1. Go to Apps & Notifications -> See All Apps
    2. Select 'ANT Radio Service'
    3. Select Permissions
    4. Select Additional permissions
    5. Slide switch to allow using of ANT hardware
    This refers to those instructions which worked for me :)
    I've got problems AND have magisk/exposed installed
    We won't support anything related to magisk/exposed/other heavily system modifying things.
    If you're encountering problems please make sure you're using a clean installation (at most gapps) to verify/reproduce the issue.

    Bugreports
    You'll find information about logging here.
    Please also note how you got the error or how it can be reproduced.

    You can dropp apps on android 12 with one finger this very good feature missing from android 11
    I have already explained in detail our approach in regards to coming (or not) to the next major Android release. This approach is for sure not influenced or accelerated by comments, strong desires or feature advertising in regards to the next Android version.
    This is my last comment on that topic, we will from now on ignore any further comments or statements pointing to the next Android release!

    you are a rude person, be a little kind.
    This is completely ridiculous. OP is sacrificing his free time to the community not only by maintaining the ROMs, but also answering SERIOUS questions as accurately as it's possible, yet you're calling him rude even though the 1st post contains the answer for your question, as he said.
