Upgrading Debian 9 Stretch to Debian 10 Buster


Debian 10: Debian is one of my favorite distributions, and it is the operating I use on a daily basis on many computers.

Debian is a free GNU / Linux operating system that provides more than 51000 program packages, compiled and ready for installation and use on your machine.

It is a result of the Debian Project, and is one of most popular Linux distributions.

Few about History

Debian as a project started on 16 August 1993 by Ian Murdock, then Purdue University student. He then wrote the Debian Manifesto, which called for the creation of a linux distribution that would develop in a way open to the spirit of GNU / Linux. Jan Murdock chose the distribution name by combining the name of Debra's then girlfriend with his own (Ian).

Let's say Ian's operating system is based on very large and popular distributions like Ubuntu and Linux Mint. You can add to them almost other 130 Linux distributions.

Below we will see what you can upgrade to the stable version of Debian 9 Stretch in the upcoming Debian 10 Buster which is currently known as testing release.

I should mention here that the testing version of Debian is much more stable than many other "fixed" distributions on DistroWatch lists.

Debian 10 - Let's start:

First we need to update Debian Stretch with all the available packages by running the following commands in the terminal:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

Immediately after we have to add the Depos Buster Repository

sed-i 's / stretch / buster / g' /etc/apt/sources.list

With the above command all repos you use automatically change to Buster repos:

See the image of the command below

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

All repos have been automatically upgraded to:

deb http://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian/ main contrib non-free deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster / updates main contrib non-free deb http: // ftp. gr.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main contrib non-free deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ sid main

So after creating the sources.list of your system use the apt-get command to see the operating system the new packages:

apt-get update

Let's now turn the system into a Debian BusterDebian 10

apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

That was it, enjoy your new system!
