Upgrading Debain Packages

1 Debian Package Upgrade

By default Debian release uses snapshot at the time of release. The package upgrade requires manual addition to the latest apt resources.

2 Adding Debian.org to apt source list

# echo "deb   main contrib nono-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian_update.list
# echo "deb-src   main contrib nono-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian_update.list
# echo "deb  -backports main contrib nono-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian_update.list
# echo "deb-src  -backports main contrib nono-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian_update.list

3 Updating package repo

# apt-get update

4 Installing / Upgrading to latest package

# apt-get --only-upgrade install <package name>

i.e. if you wish to upgrade apache2 below is example of it.

# apt-get --only-upgrade install apache2


5 Updating Package at Compile time

To update the packages instead of snapshot to original Debian latest package lists and repository in the debian.org.

Edit file ./make_var_mx6ul_dart_debian.sh using following commands,

$ cd ~/var_mx6ul_dart_debian
$ vim variscite/imx6ul-var-dart/imx6ul-var-dart.sh

And change below line:

readonly DEF_DEBIAN_MIRROR="https://snapshot.debian.org/archives/debian/yyyymmddT"

to:

readonly DEF_DEBIAN_MIRROR="https://deb.debian.org/debian/"

For example, change this:

# default mirror
readonly DEF_DEBIAN_MIRROR="https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20201130T213631Z/"

to:

# default mirror
readonly DEF_DEBIAN_MIRROR="https://deb.debian.org/debian/"

And build normally.

Note:

  • Latest debian.org packages may break your application libraries stack of your existing application.
  • Please verify your application and package dependencies before upgrading to latest Debian packages.
