Today (or yesterday as I write), Debian Lenny was released. If you with to upgrade, the procedure is as follow:
- Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and replace all occurences of “etch” by “lenny”
- run apt-get update or aptitude update
- run aptitude upgrade
- run aptitude dist-upgrade
The little discovery I made tonight was that apt needed keys to update the package list. Sometimes these keys need updated.
Here is the message I was getting when running aptitude update:
Reading package lists... Done
W: There are no public key available for the following key IDs:
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
There is the command apt-keys update to fix that issue. Still, tonight, that didn’t do it for me. The trick was to proceed as follow:
gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net --recv-keys <code>A70DAF536070D3A1
apt-key add /root/.gnupg/pubring.gpg
I’m now updated to Lenny and it looks as though my email server is down. Might turn out to be a long evening.
