Upgrade Sparky from 5 to 6

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

To make dist upgrade from Sparky 5 to 6 do:

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

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


So it should look like that:

 deb bullseye main contrib non-free
 deb-src bullseye main contrib non-free
 deb bullseye-security/updates main contrib non-free
 deb-src bullseye-security/updates main contrib non-free
 deb bullseye main non-free

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


So it should look like that:

 deb core main
 deb-src core main
 deb potolo main
 deb-src potolo main

4. Refresh package list:

 sudo apt update

5. Install sparky6-apt package which has to remove sparky5-apt:

 sudo apt install sparky6-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
