Upgrading the Debian to 10.4 by DVDs.

Postby hack3rcon » 2020-06-04 17:51

Hello,
I downloaded the Debian 10.4 DVDs and upgraded my system to 10.4, but when I want to install "strace" , then it ask me to put the old DVDs? I removed the old repositories from the source.list file, but the Debian need the old DVDs.
Why?

Thank you.

What does your sources list say?

Can you copy and paste here, so we can look at it please?

Same answer. A usb of some sort is cheap and good enough to hold your pool. I used a phone for a few years to hold a current pool with extras. After awhile you start to know what you need and that pool shrank to 2.1 GB before I stopped doing it that way. Now I would run the upgrade on an image of the offline computer, in a vm on an online computer. Then scarf the contents of /var/cache/apt/archives/ to the the usb, or phone, and run scanpackages to create the package index file, take that to the real machine, done.

As mentioned in the other thread, this way gives you the chance to include any deb you find missing.
