Anyone tried to update SYS arm server to debian 9 ?

Hi ,
I have arm server from OVH SYS for backups with this OS version :
[email protected]:~# lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 8.11 (jessie)
Release: 8
Codename: jessie
[email protected]:~#

Did anyone here tried to upgrade it to "debian 9 stretch" and succeed ?
How to do so ?

    nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    

    Change "jessie"in the source to "bullseye".

    save it

    Then
    sudo apt update && apt upgrade -y

    last

    reboot

    easy

  • SYS ARM is custom build and has a modified kernel. upgrading isn't that easy. there was a project though which managed to build their own kernels and bootimages... @TheLinuxBug

    for the lazy ones:
    sed -i 's/jessie/bullseye/g' /etc/apt/sources.list

    but I would suggest to upgrade step by step (8->9->10->11) instead one big jump

    I'm not lazy nor newbie ,
    I'm asking because ovh has it own kernel and the server itself is custom built , not sure if the upgrade is the some or I'll just destroy my OS .

  • @Falzo is the only one who's given sound advice so far. Please don't try a regular upgrade, or you may end up with an unusable system.

    I no longer have one of these boxes, so I can't offer advice. But it wasn't easy to deal with them because of the custom nature of the OS, so I decided to get rid of mine (despite their quite decent IO performance.)

    So I just asked you to change his version number instead of directly modifying it to the public source.
    In order to automatically obtain the debian11 files of the default source, if ovh does not update the debian11 dependent files, you will not receive any updates accordingly.
