Sparky rolling installation breakdown
« on: July 21, 2019, 01:44:55 pm »
Due to changing Debian repos, the Calamares installer break the installation process on rolling 5.x images (5.8 stable is already updated).

To install a rolling iso do:
1. Disable internet connection so Calamares will not try to update package list
2. Use Sparky Advanced Installer which asks for upgrading the installer, but you don't need to do so; installation of a new desktop via the Minimal image can be ok, but can't be sure - main Debian repos with no changes, but security Debian repos is changed.

Thank You. Removing the Internet Connection Worked! I was able to fully Install the system and then updated Sparkylinux once fully installed onto my SSD. May God bless you!
