Problem with Debian in dragonboard410c,auto reboot then not working

Hello,
I am trying to install Debian from sd card to eMmc, it’s almost 1.6 Gb in size and called “Dragonboard-410c-sd card-installer-buster-359” following a method from here https://www.96boards.org/documentation/consumer/dragonboard/dragonboard410c/installation/

and even its installed successfully but after some time its reboot automatically then Debian never wake up again, I don’t know what actual problem is, nothing is shown on a display.

I was done installation so many times but the result is same.

I’m using HDMI for display and when the hardware is rebooted then user-led 1 and 2 continuously blinking and after some time led 2 is off, only led 1 is continuously blinking.
is it watchdog problem ?

Do you remove SDCARD or switch off SD boot after installation ?
Any serial console output ?

Thank you for reply,
yes after successfully installation I remove SD card and turn off SD boot option on board,nothing is shown after reboot on monitor.
means when installation is completed,system is even boot up and i run sudo apt-get upgrade command then after sometimes it will reboot automatically and then never woke up(HDMI not working)

sudo apt-mark hold linux-image-4.14.0-qcomlt-arm64

There’s an issue with the way the kernel is updated currently. Once you’ve done this make sure not to let synaptic or aptitude upgrade the kernel either.
