So far pretty good. I upgraded my 5289 to buster today. Does seem there's a bug in openvpn plugin for networkmanager though, as my VPN's stopped working from networkmanager but still work fine from a console. Other than that, everything seems great so far. Nice having fairly recent software again!!

I've been running Buster when it was testing so inversely Bullseye is now test. Yet when I change my sources.list...
"all packages are up to date"?
Not to discount Buster's release but where's Bullseye?

My question is how do I upgrade my Buster to Testing?
I want to run Debian testing, which is what Buster was, can I just try a dist-upgrade or what?
Any help appreciated!

That's how I understand it's suppose to work. If your sources.list used testing you should continue running testing regardless of it's code name.


I use the name, so I can control the upgrade (got hit on a stable upgrade unexpectedly). I'm having same issues, I've changed buster to bullseye so I can continue running testing and there is no upgrading. I've even tried using "testing" and for fun used both
Code:
apt full-upgrade
and
Code:
apt-get dist-upgrade
with nothing.

I'm using my RoninOS frugal-install to hdd running live persistent so if anything breaks I can just delete contents of "RoninOS/changes" folder and start over.
I manually changed all sources in sources.list from "Buster" to "Sid" and did apt update && apt full-upgrade, it came up with like 121 upgrades but did not include a higher kernel..?
I'll post output in next post i gotta reboot lol

That's quite a jump! I've got a replies in forums.debian.net Debian 10 "buster" released they suggest to "wait it out". I recall debian moving repos from one to another without issue in the past.

I deleted changes after upgrade from Buster to Sid, all worked fine, now I've put "Bullseye" in sources.list and this is what I get- note I think as you- that sources will be updated to Bullseye and Sid soon...

Code:
root@debian:~# apt full-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
  bzip2 cron dmsetup grub-common grub-pc grub-pc-bin grub2 grub2-common libbz2-1.0 libdevmapper1.02.1 libexpat1 libpaper-utils libpaper1
13 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 4618 kB of archives.
After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
Note again no kernel upgrades...
I'm going to download a daily build of bullseye or sid and check out it's sources list

Just make sure your sources.list has "testing" and not a release name.

as I think we've taken the Buster announcement off topic enough the next reply should probably start a new bullseye / testing topic

PS: For those still having issues with "InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'buster' to 'testing'"

DON'T do crazy stuff like "chmod 777" for anything (it's being worked on), there's always "--allow-releaseinfo-change" as a last and less horrible option.

"Debian stretch is not forgotten in the excitement - it will receive a further 12 months support from the Debian Security Team, and then they will hand over to the LTS and ELTS teams #releasingDebianBuster"
