I did not tell you to add the line.
I informed you that 5.17 was not (yet) in SID.
Now if you add experimental, I assume you have some practice with it. If not .... you will have to learn by yourself and evaluate your risks.
Code: Select all
apt list plasma-workspace

You can try Neon OS or Arch or (IIRC) OpenSuse Tumbleweed if you really want to try Plasma 5.17. Sid will get it when it's ready.
And yes, using experimental is a Really Bad Idea® unless you want to, you know, experiment.
