I have problem creating SD card following the procedure in

(Creating an SD Card When a Card Reader Is Available)

$ sudo python3 local /dev/sdb
[sudo] password for user:
Begin to make SD Card...
Please make sure you have installed dependency packages:
     apt-get install -y qemu-user-static binfmt-support gcc-aarch64-linux-gnu g++-aarch64-linux-gnu
Please input Y: continue, other to install them:Y
Step: Start to make SD Card. It need some time, please wait...
[ERROR] Making SD Card failed, please check /home/user/huawei/atlas200dk/mksd/sd_card_making_log/make_ubuntu_sd.log for details!

I check the log file

$ sudo cat /home/user/huawei/atlas200dk/mksd/sd_card_making_log/make_ubuntu_sd.log
Partition naming without p-prefix
Failed: Copy 'filesystem.squashfs' fail!

By studying the, it seems that the failure happens when the script fails to mount mini_developerkit-1.3.T34.B891.rar to the temp dir.

I try to do the mount manually

$ mkdir temp
$ sudo mount -o loop mini_developerkit-1.3.T34.B891.rar temp
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop2,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.

Any clue what is wrong, and how to fix this ?

Hi, make sure the packages you downloaded is correct,
the ISO package name is "ubuntu-16.04.3-server- a r m 6 4.iso".
And the sizes of the mini_developerkit-1.3.T34.B891.rar about 74.14MB
you should use the root user to execute the order,
Then try again, you will succeed.

I check the package integrity, the rar file seems valid.

$ gpg --verify mini_developerkit-1.3.T34.B891.rar.asc
gpg: assuming signed data in `mini_developerkit-1.3.T34.B891.rar'
gpg: Signature made Khamis 22 Ogos 2019 08:36:18  +08 using RSA key ID 27A74824
gpg: Good signature from "OpenPGP signature key for Huawei software (created on 30th Dec,2013) <>"

To make SD card must have the four packages:
