Question about Debian 10

Postby EdwardSanchez » 2020-05-26 06:56

I have Debian 10 testing installed on my PC and I’m wondering if now that Debian 10 Stable is out, will I be automatically switched to Debian 10 Stable or will I remain on a testing branch??

Thanks

Depends on what you have in /etc/apt/sources.list

You are probably running stable, but I'd like to see your sources.list

Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list


Edit: too slow.

And it would depend on if you have run 'apt update', 'apt upgrade', 'apt dist-upgrade ' ,
or installed any packages, depending on what your /etc/apt/sources.list has in it, (all ready said twice now),
https://wiki.debian.org/SourcesList
Distribution

The 'distribution' can be either the release code name / alias (jessie, stretch, buster, sid) or the release class (oldstable, stable, testing, unstable) respectively. If you mean to be tracking a release class then use the class name, if you want to track a Debian point release, use the code name. Avoid using stable in your sources.list as that results in nasty surprises and broken systems when the next release is made; upgrading to a new release should be a deliberate, careful action and editing a file once every two years is not a burden.

The same could be said about avoid using the word "testing", in your sources.list, it could result in your having a testing version.
If you do not understand this, you definitely need to show us your /etc/apt/sourecs.list file
Please Read.. What we expect you have already Done.

But you have to spell the file name right. :D

Code: Select all
/etc/apt/sources.list 
sorry, Any way, if all your sources are Debian stable you should be fine.If your not sure, we need to see what you have.
