Problem with updates: Repository 'Debian bookworm' changed its 'non-free component'
#1
Hi guys,

I seem to have a problem with updating Mobian:

Whenever I try to update it, it says:

Code:
All packages are up to date.
N: Repository 'Debian bookworm' changed its 'non-free component' value from 'non-free' to 'non-free non-free-firmware'
N: More information about this can be found online in the Release notes at: https://www.debian.org/releases/bookworm/arm64/release-notes/ch-information.html#non-free-split

Does anybody know what I have to do in order to change the repository settings (if that's the problem) so that I get updates again?

Best,
A

Change (or add) non-free-firmware to /etc/apt/sources.list (as described by the mentioned link).

Thank you!

But what exactly do I have to paste into /etc/apt/sources.list in order to get updates again?

Just replace 'non-free' with 'non-free-firmware'

Thank you!

I changed the entry from 
Code:
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian bookworm main

to
Code:
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian bookworm main non-free non-free-firmware

This has changed things, but instead of getting the zillion packages (that ought to be expected after weeks without upgrades)  it looks like this:
Code:
Hit:1 http://deb.debian.org/debian bookworm InRelease
Hit:2 http://repo.mobian.org bookworm InRelease

Anything I can do in order to get upgrades again?

It seems everything is actually working as expected.
Debian Bookworm = Debian Stable (currently), which means updates aren't as often as f.e. Stable does not get new upstream versions, only fixes to (serious) bugs applied to the version in Stable.
AFAICT the 12.1 point release was on 22nd July and the 12.2 point release is scheduled for 7th October at which point you should get a bunch of updated packages.

This is a feature, not a bug ;-)

But you should add the following line to get security updates:
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security bookworm-security main non-free non-free-firmware

Those updates could come in at any time when a security issue is found (and fixed).

Done, thank you!
