I have Sparky 5.7 installed and I want to make full system upgrade.
Should I first write a new version 5.7.1 to the USB flash drive and then upgrade from it my 5.7 version or can it be done via APTus (full system upgrade)?
I tried to do a full upgrade without a flash drive, but nothing came of it. :-\

Please review this article from the wiki:

Manual system upgrade

sudo apt update; sudo apt dist-upgrade

Quote from: Sparky 5.7.1
System reinstallation is not required.
If you have Sparky 5.x installed, simply make full system upgrade.





Cheers!!   ;)

If you installed 5.x and then made a full system upgrade you basically are running 5.7.1. Why do you presume it's otherwise ?

"If you installed 5.x and then made a full system upgrade you basically are running 5.7.1. Why do you presume it's otherwise ?"

Because there is nothing that is claimed and what should be.

<This update provides:
– full disk encrypting via the Calamares installer back
– Linux kernel 4.19.28 as default
– all packages updated from Debian testing repos as of April 02, 2019
– added qCamera and removed Camorama (LXQt iso)
– added qCalculator and removed Galculator (LXQt iso)
– and uGet download manager replaced by Persopolis (LXQt iso)>

Ok. Now I get it.
Quotefull disk encrypting via the Calamares installer back
To encrypt your disk you need to reinstall.
QuoteLinux kernel 4.19.28 as default
If you're running sparky kernel you already have newer kernel. Otherwise you are running debian kernel which is 4.19.28 at the moment.
Quoteall packages updated from Debian testing repos as of April 02, 2019
You have it already , nothing to do here.
Quote- added qCamera and removed Camorama (LXQt iso)
– added qCalculator and removed Galculator (LXQt iso)
– and uGet download manager replaced by Persopolis (LXQt iso)>
You can easily install those packages using apt, or APTus.
