Bullseye: Automatic upgrade when unstable becomes stable?

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

I assume this involves updating the `/etc/apt/sources.list` file first and then using `apt-get` commands to do the upgrade, but are we ok in doing this or is it recommended that we start freah with a new install?


Also, will that also work for users (like me) that are running the OS from an external SSD storage instead of the SD card?


Thank you! :)

Thanks @Werner but in my case I'm still on Buster, so my question was more on upgrading from Buster to Bullseye!

Unfortunately userspace upgrades like Bionic to Focal or Stretch to Buster have never been officially supported by Armbian due to lack of resources for proper testing. It probably works if you freeze your firmware packages and follow official Ubuntu/Debian guide how to upgrade but if something goes wrong you won't receive help from Armbian.
