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:


So it should look like that:

 deb buster main contrib non-free
 deb-src buster main contrib non-free
 deb buster-updates main contrib non-free
 deb-src buster-updates main contrib non-free
 deb buster/updates main contrib non-free
 deb-src buster/updates main contrib non-free
 deb buster main non-free

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


So it should look like that:

 deb core main
 deb-src core main
 deb nibiru main
 deb-src 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
