If any of the lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list refer to 'stable', you might get a surprise on your next upgrade! #ReleasingDebianBuster

I have the following repo set up:

deb ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib

deb-src ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib"

Will I still be able to get the latest upgrade?

#Debian #Linux #FOSS


No, and that is by design. The name is meant to pin down the distribution and avoid upgrades.

Thanks for your response. Can I simply add the stable repo to my list, or would I have to update manually?


@squire Just replace "stretch" with "stable" and it will always keep up-to-date with future releases as you run "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade"
