How do I update Squeeze to Wheezy when I can't update?


Hey all, I just saw that the reason I'm unable to update my Debian server is because Squeeze updates ended on May 2014. I then decided to update to Wheezy, but the instructions I've seen say to run apt-get update before upgrading. Well, that won't work for me now. Here's some of what I get when I try to do updates:

Code:
Err http://ftp.us.debian.org squeeze-updates Release.gpg
  Unable to connect to ftp.us.debian.org:http: [IP: 128.61.240.89 13281]

I don't want to "Nuke and Repopulate" but at this time I don't see any other choices. Any ideas? Suggestions? Recommendations?

Thanks,

Joe B

Hi,

after EOL, the repos get moved to archive.debian.org. So you should update your /etc/apt/sources.list accordingly.

Support for Squeeze has been extended and the repos have been moved. Have a look here: https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/Using

Hi TobiGSD, I made the lts changes but I'm still getting pretty much the same errors. My current sources.list:

Code:
root@Outland:/home/jobee# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ squeeze-lts main contrib non-free
deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian/ squeeze-lts main contrib non-free

deb http://http.debian.net/debian squeeze-lts main contrib non-free

root@Outland:/home/jobee#
And a few of my errors:

I'm current with my debian-archive-keyring file. I was going to change my apt.conf file but I don't even have one. Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Sorry, but I don't have a Squeeze machine anymore, so I can't help with that.

I think you have duplicates
Quote:
deb http://http.debian.net/debian squeeze-lts main contrib non-free
deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian squeeze-lts main contrib non-free
Also did you need to run
Quote:
apt-get install debian-archive-keyring
per
Quote:
You need to have an up-to-date debian-archive-keyring package before APT will trust the squeeze-lts suite. If you see a NO_PUBKEY warning after adding the squeeze-lts sources, run apt-get install debian-archive-keyring and try again.

Hi Eddy1, as to duplicates I just copied what was on the Squeeze LTS page: https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/Using

I ran the keyring install but the keyring is already installed.

Thanks,

Joe B

Remove the dup's or comment out then re-run
Code:
apt-get update & apt-get upgrade
You have to do as root or using sudo
Not to forget
You can also run the 'check-support-status' utility manually to get a list of all unsupported packages installed on your system
Most likely you'll have to run
Quote:
apt-get check-support-status

Hmmm... I just held my breath and tried to upgrade one of my servers at work and it worked just fine. It's been rebooted, I've logged in and it's up and working great with no errors. I must have a different problem with my server at home. Thanks all for the time spent on this problem for me. I'm going to close this thread and start looking elsewhere on my home server.

Thanks,

Joe B

I just tried updating my home Debian 6 server the exact same way I did at work and it still didn't work, even using the "tweaked" Wheezy addresses in sources.list. I decided to go ahead and "Nuke and Repopulate" my home Debian 6 server. I'll need to upgrade to Wheezy eventually so I might as well do it now and get it over with. Besides, reinstalling Apache will give me a little more practical experience with configuring it too.

Thanks,

Joe B

If you were going to wheezy then change sources.list & upgrade it.

OP was originally trying to upgrade. The Debian upgrade instructions say to upgrade all the squeeze packages before changing sources.list for wheezy, hence this thread.
