Hey everyone, long time no see.
My friend has an interesting problem with his Switch. He is currently on FW 10.2.0. And he can't update it no matter what he tries.

Trying normal System Update via Nintendo servers gives him: "Error Code 2002-0038, Not enough free space in the save destination".
Trying daybreak, he gets: "Failed to prepare update. Result 0x00004c02"

What he tried to fix it:
4 different SD cards (all of them as fat32 and exfat)
Format the switch (still says "not enough space"). Both his SD and eMMC are totally empty.
Launching daybreak in apple and app mode.
EDIT: Multiple different firmwares from different sources. Daybreak always said that they were ok.

But no matter what, it just won't let him update the Switch.
Guys, do you have any idea what the problem might be?
Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Has he tried using ChoiDujourNX?
