I don't want to use instructions for upgrading ,,Debian" to ,,Devuan". I just want to know details about the differences between ,,Refracta" and ,,Devuan" and how to upgrade ,,Refracta" from ,,Devuan" repositories. You explained Me everything I want to know. Once more thank You for help.

Thank you for Your help. Are You sure that every package included in ,,Refracta" is in ,,Devuan" repositories? If not, that packages wont be upgraded in that way as You described. Another thing is that ,,Refracta" is not only a customized ISO of ,,Devuan", but different distribution with different name, different numbering(numers of versions are the same as in ,,Debian"). I read instruction about migrating from ,,Debian" to ,,Devuan" in documentation of the second I mention above. Apart from changing the initialization system, there are instructions for change repositories from ,,Debian" to ,,Devuan" repos and I read there that after that change and do distro-upgrade the distribution will be change to ,,Devuan". That is why I ask about that. Does after I do normal upgrade from repositories, according to Your instructions, ,,Refracta" will not change to ,,Devuan"(name, numer of version)?

Greetings and salutations to Everyone. I am new on that forum and this is My first post. Apologeise for My non-ideal english, I am not native english speaker. But to the point. My questions concerns ,,Devuan" derivative which is called ,,Refracta". If I am not wrong, ,,Refracta" is based on ,,Devuan" repositories, so when I do distro-upgrade to new version from that repositories ,,Refracta" probably change to ,,Devuan" and something will be wrong in the system. My questions is: Can i do distro-upgrade from ISO file? Can I update packages, then turned off repositories and set up ISO file as only source for distro-upgrade? Does the ISO file of ,,Refracta" is a ISO that type and allows to do that? Does ,,apt" allows to do that? I want to know how can I upgrade ,,Refracta" without doing a reinstalation. I hope someone could answer on My questions, especially Mr. ,,fsmithred".
