In the meantime maybe read some documentation on Debian testing, and get a better idea about how it works, who should use it, etc : https://wiki.debian.org/DebianTesting
Really, the recent OP djk44883 , should have started a new topic, instead if derailing this one.

Good luck! :twisted:

After the freeze it's more than a flood. I don't recall them taking a few days moving jessie > stretch or to buster. The repos, I understand, have an automatic transitioning facility buy then I don't really know. Learned the hard way not to use stable or testing in sources.list because of unexpected upgrades, not that I'm trying to manage it some...
just curious is the issue with my set up or things not quit being ready. Appears other have an issue too so, Yes, I'll wait. - thanks!

Something that doesn't get mentioned a lot after major Debian releases are the translations. They are getting better each time. I believe most DEs are 99% translated to my native language and it's a big feat considering it's not German, French or Spanish :D
GNOME is fully translated and that's one of the reasons why I use it. It gives off that "patriotic" vibe when all programs I use are in my native language.

I think it's important to post this here, as there are still some people who use apt-get:
If you use apt-get to upgrade to buster, you won't be asked about the security repository info changed from 'testing' to 'stable'. Use the --allow-releaseinfo-change option, as Eriberto Mota explains here: http://eriberto.pro.br/blog/2019/07/07/ ... to-stable/ or use apt instead

Once again, apt-get is kept for some scripts, it is obsolete. Use only apt when upgrading, it is better supported.

^Yeah, read some random articles on It's FOSS(hit), it will surely help you understand Debian better than Debian's own devs advices from the micronews and the release notes:roll:

Well, clearly you do not understand what a "subset" is, so maybe you should read some random articles on It's FOSS. It will help you understand what you read in the release notes.

In the meantime, Let me Google that for you.

apt is a subset of apt-get and apt-cache. Or equivalently, apt-get and apt-cache are a superset of apt.

A subset does not make the superset obsolete.

I read the Brief at the top of the article... "apt commands that replace the older apt-get commands." replace older strongly suggest, at least it's on it's way out

Debian 10 Buster installed, upgraded from MX Linux based on Stretch. Finally, absolutely everything works out of the box in Debian, no tinkering or workarounds are needed. Debian really has become stable in recent years. Excited to be Debian user!

Debian 10 turns .6!

------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Debian Project https://www.debian.org/
Updated Debian 10: 10.6 released press@debian.org
September 26th, 2020 https://www.debian.org/News/2020/20200926
------------------------------------------------------------------------


The Debian project is pleased to announce the sixth update of its stable
distribution Debian 10 (codename "buster"). This point release mainly
adds corrections for security issues, along with a few adjustments for
serious problems. Security advisories have already been published
separately and are referenced where available.

Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of
Debian 10 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no
need to throw away old "buster" media. After installation, packages can
be upgraded to the current versions using an up-to-date Debian mirror.

Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have
to update many packages, and most such updates are included in the point
release.

New installation images will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading an existing installation to this revision can be achieved by
pointing the package management system at one of Debian's many HTTP
mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at:

https://www.debian.org/mirror/list
“ computer users can be divided into 2 categories:
Those who have lost data
...and those who have not lost data YET ”
Remember to BACKUP!
