debian update.

This is a relatively cautious procedure. More steps than you're used to but way less than a rescue. As a user with sudo privileges:

df -h / /var # check available space. Stop if space is low.
# This may report the same volume twice depending on whether /var has its own file system.

sudo apt update # get new package lists

sudo apt upgrade -d # check how much space it wants to use, then download updated packages

sudo apt install thunderbird firefox-esr tzdata # upgrade a few big packages to get them out of the way

sudo apt upgrade # install all the remaining new packages

sync # flush all file system caches to disk

sudo reboot # test the upgraded system is bootable and switch to current kernel and systemd
