Problem: Pi4 and Library Update - never finishes?

I can no longer ssh in, nor even ping. So I power off and back on, and try again. After starting up, I see a fraction of my music library seems to be indexed, or in the most recent case, nothing at all seems to be in the library. I kick off update again, and it seems to do the same thing - eventually, I can no longer reach the pi over the network.

Is there anything useful to try to look at to determine what is happening here? Is my library (1.1T) just too big? Other than setting timezone, setting up wifi ssid/password, setting the audio config for X400 v3.0, and adding the nfs mount, it's stock config. Just now, I've turned on the debug logging to see if that might shed any light in logs. I've poked around a bit in /var/log after a restart, but nothing stood out (to my noob eyes).

MPD is known to crash during Lib update when running the 64 bit kernel.

Otherwise the symptoms suggest something external to moOde software for example a bad SDCard, power supply, network issue, hardware issue, 3rd party software or tweaks installed, etc.

Okay, I wondered if it was not hardware. If anyone else has the same DAC (X400 v3.0), and can recommend a power supply, I'm all ears. I'll try swapping out what I have now.

Also, I just bought the SD card (128g and I forget what brand), but same thing there - maybe it's not working correctly. If someone has recommendations of good SD cards (and sizes) I'd love to hear them.

I did try Volumio before this, and had a few quirks - like it being impossibly slow on doing a search for example. Also, if I turned the volume completely up, it would cause a restart. I'm not sure if that was overheating or related to bad/underpower PS.
