    At this point in time, no -- doing an upgrade will not break anything. You'll get 8.11 which is the last Jessie upgrade.

    However it is better to use the pkXX aliases from a root shell which do a few more things as shown below:

    sudo su

    pkup (update)

    pkug (upgrade)


    With the alias defined as:

    al pkup

    alias pkup='apt-get -y install debian-archive-keyring; apt-get update; apt-get -y install ca-certificates; apt-get update'

    al pkug

    alias pkug='apt-get -y dist-upgrade'

    The keyring and certificates update stuff is important.

  • ok i did it using pkxx aliases, all went well


    next step once i get a couple of sd cards, i will got to debian 10


    thanks
