Upgrade Sparky from 4 to 5

It should work with no problems, but remember: You do that on your own risk!

To make dist upgrade from Sparky 4 to 5 do:

1. Backup your personal files to external disk or partition.

2. Change Debian repositories from stretch to buster at the file:

 /etc/apt/sources.list

So it should look like that:

 deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free
 deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free
 deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main contrib non-free
 deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main contrib non-free
 deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main contrib non-free
 deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main contrib non-free
 deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org/ buster main non-free

3. Change Sparky repositories from tyche to nibiru at the file:

 /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky.list

So it should look like that:

 deb https://repo.sparkylinux.org/ core main
 deb-src https://repo.sparkylinux.org/ core main
 deb https://repo.sparkylinux.org/ nibiru main
 deb-src https://repo.sparkylinux.org/ nibiru main

4. Refresh package list:

 sudo apt update

5. Install sparky5-apt package which has to remove sparky4-apt:

 sudo apt install sparky5-apt

6. Refresh package list again:

 sudo apt update

7. Dist upgrade now:

 sudo apt full-upgrade

If any problem run:

 sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a
 sudo apt install -f
