Upcoming Debian 9 Update (9.4)

An update to Debian 9 is scheduled for Saturday, March 10th, 2018. As of now it will include the following bug fixes. They can be found in "stretch-proposed-updates", which is carried by all official mirrors. Please note that packages published through security.debian.org are not listed, but will be included if possible. Some of the updates below are also already available through "stretch-updates". Testing and feedback would be appreciated. Bugs should be filed in the Debian Bug Tracking System, but please make the Release Team aware of them by copying "debian-release@lists.debian.org" on your mails.

wow!! this is exciting!!

Stretch 9.3.0 is still installed in sda on the ResearchBox. It is partitioned with / /swap and /home partitions. I should be able to load this as a replacement for the 9.3.0 that is on sda now.

It would be interesting though if an apt-get full-upgrade is all that is needed as this is just replacing 9.30 with 9.4

I've only just migrated to Debian from LMDE2 last month so I'm still really learning the ropes here.

Thx, for informing us. That's exactly the date I want it come.
I've take a break polishing packages for 3 days by now.

9.4 is just a minor release, it's 99,9999% chance that nothing will break after normal upgrade. When it comes to updates, Debian is different from other distros. Even major release upgrades are very reliable.
With that said, there is nothing exicing about this release apart from newer kernel (that you already got via security updates) and few important bugfixes.

Yes, exactly. Apt update, apt upgrade and apt full-upgrade.

Yes, exactly. Apt update, apt upgrade and apt full-upgrade.


interesting

it would seem that using apt is a bit different from using apt-get

from the Debian Handbook it seems apt is "the right way to do the upgrade

excerpt
For more important upgrades, such as the change from one major Debian version to the next, you need to use apt full-upgrade. With this instruction, apt will complete the upgrade even if it has to remove some obsolete packages or install new dependencies.


Unlike apt and aptitude, apt-get doesn't know the full-upgrade command. Instead, you should use apt-get dist-upgrade (”distribution upgrade”), the historical and well-known command that apt and aptitude also accept for the convenience of users who got used to it.

from the man page for apt:
full-upgrade performs the function of upgrade but will remove currently installed packages if this is needed to
upgrade the system as a whole.


the above suggests full-upgrade should do the whole job -- ?

apt update

Just.This. No need for complicating easy stuff.
Code: Select all
apt full-upgrade

in Debian is used to upgrade from one major version to the other (example from Debian 8 to 9)

Mike, here's a video of my 9.1-9.2 upgrade so you know what to expect, and so that you can see how simple the process is in Debian.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QnldXkOLAY

Notice that I use
Code: Select all
sudo apt full-upgrade


since I have always used full-upgrade out of habit. I didn't know that apt upgrade was sufficient. So I've learned something in this thread - thanks None/Wheeler.
