None of your packages will be updated from the beowulf security repositories because the versions in there will be older.

That makes sense, thanks

Thanks everyone, I knew Ceres/Sid didn't receive security updates, but didn't know testing didn't either. I was further confused from others' sources lists having chimaera security on there. I changed it to Beowulf security after I made this post, so I could update, would it be wise to keep it as such?

I decided to try testing (chimaera), so I replaced all the "beowulfs" in my /etc/apt/sources.list with "chimaera". However, when I try to update, the terminal says that it can't find the release file.

The input/output can be seen here:

➜  ~ sudo apt-get update
Hit:1 stable InRelease
Hit:2 stable InRelease
Hit:3 ./ InRelease
Hit:4 chimaera InRelease
Ign:5 chimaera-security InRelease
Hit:6 chimaera-updates InRelease
Err:7 chimaera-security Release
  404  Not Found [IP: 80]
Reading package lists... Done
E: The repository ' chimaera-security Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

I'm sure I'm just missing something simple, but I can't seem to find any answers.
