These instructions upgrade Netrunner Desktop 16.09 to the new base of 17.01 Stretch/Snapshot.
Please use at your own risk and make sure to make a backup of your personal data first before attempting the upgrade.
To perform the upgrade, open a terminal (yakuake or konsole) and type the following commands:
chmod a+xr upgrade-desktop-1609-to-1701.sh
sudo ./upgrade-desktop-1609-to-1701.sh 2>&1 | tee upgrade.log
During the upgrade, you’ll see a lot of information appear in the terminal and you might see a few warnings/errors. As long as they don’t halt the upgrade, you can ignore them.
If you get asked about restarting services accept it.
The upgrade may take a while (up to 1-2 hours, depending on your machine and internet connection), so be prepared for that.
After that you will have a Netrunner Desktop 17.01 running on the new Stretch/Snapshot base.
To cleanup, please enter the following commands in the terminal:
sudo rm /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades.ucf-dist
sudo apt autoremove
