 +===== Upgrading Devuan ascii (stable) to Devuan beowulf (testing) =====
 +(Last updated: 2019-12-17)
 +:!: backports and ssb (sid source build) might be a better option than upgrading to devuan testing because testing is a moving target.
 +If you want to upgrade from ascii to beowulf, make sure you have the latest updates for ascii:
 +apt update && apt upgrade # as root
 +  * Replace ascii with beowulf in /​etc/​apt/​sources.list .
 +  * The repositories proposed and backport in sources.list should be commented out, since they are not available for beowulf while beowulf is testing.
 +  * Have a look at /​etc/​apt/​sources.list.d/​* if there are files in which ascii has to be replaced by beowulf
 +  * Pinning is not necessary any more as found in [[https://​dev1galaxy.org/​viewtopic.php?​id=2301|Tips for successfully migrating Ascii DE to Beowulf as of 11-08-2018]].
 +  * After changing sources.list to beowulf run: apt update && apt upgrade
