Debian version / apt-get update


Hi all,

Any ideas please why my version below says 6 (ie squeeze) but then my apt-get update says lenny?

Also can anyone please explain the 404 not found?

Thank you...

I think the reason you are seeing this is because your /etc/apt/sources.list contains lines which say "stable" and lines which say "lenny". This has lead to your system being updated to the present stable (squeeze). The 404 will likely be because, with lenny being older, the particular mirror that your sources.list points to has removed the lenny packages.
The way to solve this is to remove the lines that point to lenny in your sources.list and, unless you want to automatically update to wheezy when that becomes stable, replace "stable" with "wheezy". If you're unsure how to do this then post your sources.list and I'm sure we'll be able to work it out.

Ok thanks - do you mean that my Debian has updated itself from lenny to squeeze automatically without waiting for any command?

Ok here it is, thanks...
Code:
$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian lenny main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-fre            e
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-security lenny/updates main contrib non-free

I think that is what has happened, yes. Looking at your sources.list there's only one line pointing to stable so I would remove that and change the rest from lenny to squeeze leaving it like this.
Code:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian squeeze main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-volatile squeeze/volatile main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-security squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze all
deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze all
I would then run "apt-get update" then "apt-get dist-upgrade" but don't just answer "y" -- check the list of proposed updates. If any, and if there are a lot of packages or kernel packages I may have been wrong in my assessment so please select "n" and post the result if that is the case. If there are no proposed updates, or just the usual couple of small packages go right ahead and upgrade and all should be well.

Changes your sources as follows:

Code:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian squeeze main contrib non-free

# volatile - deprecated
#deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-volatile squeeze/volatile main contrib non-free

# the below line replaces volatile
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian squeeze-updates main contrib non-free

deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-security squeeze/updates main contrib non-free

# no idea what this is but disable it for now as it's a 3rd party repo.
#deb http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze all
#deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze all
Then do:

Code:
# apt-get clean ; apt-get update
Then go and read the release notes for Debian squeeze for upgrading from Lenny to Squeeze. You will need to install the 2.6.32 the kernel first and reboot into it before continuing - the upgrade is not straightforward.

My apologies, volatile is now squeeze-updates, as shown here:
lists.debian.org/debian-volatile-announce/2012/msg00000.html
If you change these it will get rid of the 404.

Do you mean I am still on Lenny even though I get
Code:
$ cat /etc/debian_version
6.0.7
$
?

Thanks...

This was why I suggested running "apt-get dist-upgrade" but saying no to it. If there is a huge list or the kernel is in there then you're not running squeeze but if it's only a few programs or nothing then you are. It is slightly risky in that you have to be very careful to hit 'n' if there's a list. The other think to do is run "uname -a" as that might tell you where you stand.

Hmm, that is a long list. When was the last time you updated? a thought also occurs, what is the result of uname -a and what happens when you do the same (pressing n at the relevant point) with apt-get update?
If this were my personal system I'd go right ahead with the dist-upgrade but if this is a production system or one you can't afford to let fail then more care will be in order.

This would be my first update

I already did that (above) or did you mean something else (like $ apt-get upgrade)?

Well yes it has important websites which I am expecting to move to a different server anyway in a few weeks so I guess I will do that first and then come back to this just for fun.

So anyway should I conclude that it is Lenny even though it says:

Code:
$ cat /etc/debian_version
6.0.7
$
Thanks...

No to hijack this thread but I have some concerning about upgrading in Debian too. I have been Ubuntu user for a while and whenever there is a new distro release the upgrade manager usually does a good job notifying me that a new release is available.

Now I know there is a new release for Debian coming out on 05-05-13. Would I be able to upgrade my release and fix whatever bug I might have or, will I have to do a manual upgrade by downloading the distro into a CD and then perform the upgrade like is done with other distros?

This will be my first time upgrading Debian and I really dont know how is done.

Juc1 Sorry, I meant "apt-get upgrade" rather than "apt-get dist-upgrade" (blame my muscle memory).
If it's your first update that would explain it -- I would wait until you've moved your sites and you don't mind a few problems before running the dist-upgrade just in case.

TroN-0074I haven't done a distribution upgrade myself as I moved to Testing then Sid not long after moving to Debian. As far as I can tell an update by changing sources.list is possible -- I think caravel posted a link to some instructions.

Thanks, Perhaps that will be good for Juc1 to wait for the new release to be available in just few more weeks
