apt sources, changing version and name with apt

Hi I got this message when updating today, Knowing the newest release has arrived.

I had a look at the man page but didn't see a way to correct the error, can anyone help.

Repository 'http://deb.devuan.org/merged testing InRelease' changed its 'Version' value from '4.0.0' to '5.0'Repository 'http://deb.devuan.org/merged testing InRelease' changed its 'Codename' value from 'chimaera' to 'daedalus'This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.

My sources list, yes... it could be simpler.

Notice you have all 3 releases in your sources.list, unless I'm missing something you should have only one. I am assuming you want chimaera then the beowulf and daedalus should be commented (#). 

I am using this for my sources.list with chimaera.

Re: apt sources, changing version and name with apt

@zephyr . . . Nice to see you. I wondering why you still have auto.mirror.devuan.org in you sources list even though it is commented out.  It has been deprecated for several years so no need to keep it around anymore.

Re: apt sources, changing version and name with apt

The testing & Daedalus is there because I felt adventurous a few weeks back.

Chimaera is the medium I installed from lately. (I do that a bit)

And Beowulf is for backports and other packages I use that weren't available in Chimaera at the time I re-installed the OS.

This is on my laptop where I feel a bit more adventurous.

I was wondering how to fix the signatures as it mentions in the error, changing version numbers and codenames...

Thank you for the replies

# apt update

Say yes when it asks. And please search the boards before posting, I've answered this here before.

Re: apt sources, changing version and name with apt

"This [repo mix ]is a very risky thing to attempt, and is generally regarded as a bad idea for all but the most advanced Debian users."

I'm an advanced user that have used Linux as my only OS since 2003. I'm convinced that everybody can learn by trying, and therefore recommend to mix repos if they need, or want, it. But have a backup of the system if something get messier than you can handle. I have an extra partition on the disk for the backup copy of my system, with that I can dual boot in emergency, while I solve the problems on my primary system.

Thank you, "apt update" did the job.

Re: apt sources, changing version and name with apt

Status. Since writing this post I have reloaded both my laptop and desktop systems to the new Chimaera (amd64 desktop) release and all is back to normal.

I have got into the habit of using the now familiar apt-get for command-line repo installs of packages and never really used apt unless I was following directions from a post here... For packages from my .deb backups I generally use dpkg -i -G .

Anyhow, Live and learn. I liked the excitement of the rolling release of testing, but I prefer the durabillity of the official release.

Thank you, sorry for the noise. ;-)
