Updating Sources to Beowulf stable

Can someone tell me how I go about updating my sources information, which are already set to Beowulf, now that Beowulf's Suite has moved from testing to stable?

If I try and update my package indices in Synaptic I get the message:

"Repository 'https://mirror.ungleich.ch/mirror/packages/devuan/merged beowulf InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'testing' to 'stable' This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details."

This is repeated for the other sources.

I've read man apt-secure and it tells me how to update my repository if I'm a repository owner but not what I need to do as a simple user.

Re: Updating Sources to Beowulf stable

Don't care if you have explicitely stated Beowulf and not stable in your sources.list. The message comes once, and then its fine.

Re: Updating Sources to Beowulf stable

Hi

There are currently problems with the repos. it seems someone might have stable before evryone involved was ready. Please be patient a couple of days. I am sure things are going to be sorted out. But it takes some time.

Have a nice day

Re: Updating Sources to Beowulf stable

I can't see any way of doing this in synaptic, however

from an answer on the DNG list you can do it using apt:

$ sudo apt update

and, when asked, answer 'yes' for each source.

Re: Updating Sources to Beowulf stable

Yes, on apt update that works fine. I rarely use Synaptic. cli is fine for me.

Re: Updating Sources to Beowulf stable

It's not a bug. It's just that events are happening slightly out of sequence. Official announcement is coming soon. Say yes. If you were already up to date, you won't see any new packages.

Hi, for using https mirrors you need to install the https transport package like:

sudo apt install apt-transport-https

Just update the sources to take effect.

Re: Updating Sources to Beowulf stable

Thank you

I was as well unaware of this step. Now my problems with updating apt sources is gone as well (for installing I am using aptitude, for upgrading apt)

Have a nice day
