Installing buster through putty?

First off, I'm really a novice at everything that has anything to do with linux so my questions will probably look a bit stupid.

A while ago I bought a WD Mycloud home, but I didn't like the system so I looked for other options. I found open media vault but had issues installing. Eventually I found an automated installation that worked, but it's debian 9 and OMV4 (which isn't supported anymore).

In order to install OMV5 I need to first install Buster, and I have been trying to find ways to do that but failed so far.

Now I wonder if I can use putty to install buster on my network harddrive. I have been playing around with it, but I don't really know what could possibly work. From what I've read it seems like you can use debootstrap for an installation like this?

I haven't been able to try, because I get a message that debootstrap isn't installed and when I try to install it I get the following error:

root@Claudia:~# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y && apt-get install debootstrap

I have no idea what this error means, or how to fix it.

Could help, if you have space on the target?
