upgrade jessie to stretch

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have the same issue : my SD Card died all of a sudden, leaving me an option to update the Debian distribution.

The previous installed one was:

ARMBIAN Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 3.4.113-sun8i

It is still left in a Nand and could be booted off it.

What is the procedure to update the whole system to Debian Stretch?

Thank you.

I followed the Rasbian Jessy to Stretch migration link (above).

It doesn't allow for the kernel upgrade. The migration ends up with the

root@orangepiplus:/# uname -a
Linux orangepiplus 3.4.113-sun8i #8 SMP PREEMPT Sat Feb 9 20:17:57 CET 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux

 

The fresh installation from scratch allows for the Linux  4.19.20. Thus at least the kernel upgrade procedure needs to be thought of.

 

The other question for Orange PI :  how could different boot device be chosen? How could I choose booting from Nand or SD Card of USB?

Just for the information of people coming from Google searching for the same problem -

 

You need to install the linux-stretch-root-next-orangepizero package (which removes the jessie package), to be able to see the new kernels available in armbian-config.
