Debian updating to squeeze
Using aptitude is supposed to be the easiest thing in the world. Today, I tried to upgrade my Squeeze installation into Wheezy with several issues.Before you begin, you should make sure that you have a working backup or a copy of your data.Prepare your Linode for Debian 7 by installing updates, backing up your Linode, checking your kernel, stopping services, and starting a screen session.It all went great with that upgrade, and I had no issues with the OS ever since - this is the reason that made me confident that the upgrade from Wheezy to Jessie is smooth and easy.The hardware is a dedicated server hosted on Hetzner.This will not be such a YOLO experience, because the whole upgrading from Wheezy to Jessie (stable) went smoothly. I'm not such a great risk taker as to jump head first to the newest and shiniest things that appear.No, I'm using Debian as my main desktop OS for about a year now and I upgraded to Jessie from Wheezy sometimes in February.
After that, I issued an apt-get -f install and the upgrade process continued till the end, apparently.During the upgrade process, apt-get crashed forcing me to open another terminal and do an apt-get -f install.
