Quote from: Peekay on December 30, 2021, 08:09:43 PMHi. I have been running SparkyLinux 4 (Tyche) LXDE on a Core-2 DUO laptop for several years. Super fast, nice GUI, really pleased. I get system updates all the time so the version that I have appears to be supported, but from the download options here I can see that my version is relatively old. Do I need to (and should I) install the newer version? [....]

Quote from: pavroo[....]If you would like to upgrade Sparky 4 to Sparky 5 – it is possible, but I recommend to make fresh Sparky 5 installation.By the way, if you decide to make such upgrade, do:1. Change Debian repos from 'stretch' to 'buster' or keep 'stable' at the /etc/apt/sources.list2. Temporary change Sparky repos from 'oldstable' to 'stable' at the /etc/apt/sources.d/sparky-oldstable.list if your system uses Sparky 'oldstable' repos already, and refresh package list:sudo apt update3. Install the latest version of 'sparky5-apt' package which has to remove 'sparky4-apt':sudo apt updatesudo apt install sparky-apt sparky5-apt4. Then upgrade the system:sudo apt updatesudo apt full-upgradeIf any problem:sudo apt install -fLet me know if you find any problem with your system upgrade, please.
