upgrading stretch to testing

I'm new to Bunsenlabs, but use Debian testing.

Could I change the existing sources.list that is on this version to my list on my other ssd which is:

Debian testing sources.list

deb http://debian.ca-west.mirror.fullhost.com/debian/ testing  main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.ca-west.mirror.fullhost.com/debian/ testing-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org testing main non-free


would this upgrade to the latest testing which is bullseye?

Re: upgrading stretch to testing

What version, BunsenLabs Helium (stretch)? I wouldn't upgrade to testing that way, but it's certainly doable. Upgrade first to buster and then repeat the process to upgrade to testing...

The way I'd do it is the recommended way, install buster and then upgrade to testing...

https://www.debian.org/distrib/

https://wiki.debian.org/DebianTesting

After that you can add the BL session (start at "Then add this line to your sources...")

Re: upgrading stretch to testing

Are you asking about migrating existing Debian bullsey installations to Bunsenlabs?
I think that is in your phrasing but not in the subject headline...

I think it works to add Helium or Lithium-dev repos to your existing Bullsey installation and then install bunsen-* packages.

If you install a new pc with BL-helium iso, you have to upgrade debian repos in steps, as hhh pointed out. You can choose to stay with BL-helium repos.

Thanks, It runs very well the way it is so I'll leave it alone and enjoy BL.
