Unfortunately, those commands aren't working. 
I get this:

&& starts a new command, so you need to add sudo between && and apt-get

Perfect, Thank You!!!

The modified command : sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Works like a charm! :-)

In tutorials, you see quite often commands prefixed with either # or $. They are the typical login prompts, # for root and $ for non-root and they indicate what privileges are required to execute them.

How to become root is a matter of preference.

Hope that helps to avoid confusion in the future.

I appreciate not being left to my own ignorance! :-)
Just be patient with me....I'll eventually get it :-)
Good Night!!

P.S. How did I get to be a "Senior" member? By age, I guess. Can't be competency!! :-)

I'm guessing but I'd put it down to the number of posts you have made.

# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

I would recomend:

# apt update && apt upgrade

instead. It's slightly shorter and nicer for interactive use. Besides, 'apt upgrade' should be sufficient for the same release.

'apt full-upgrade' or 'apt-get dist-upgrade' are only needed when upgrading to the next release or if you are running Debian's testing or unstable versions.

You might also want to run 'apt autoremove' (or 'apt --purge autoremove' if you understand the difference between 'remove' and 'purge') when suggested by apt.

This build also includes a root terminal.  I found that some commands worked with it, that did not work with sudo.

Let me slightly rephrase what I wrote earlier about keeping the system up to date:


Let me clarify what you got. You did not get a full blown Debian, but Debian minus the installer minus uboot, kernel, initrd and other small things like extlinux.conf.

Instead of the installer, you got an .img file. That's a pitty, but not relevant for keeping the system up to date.

Instead of getting uboot, the kernel and initrd from Debian you got them from Mrfixit.


* You need to update what comes from Debian with Debian's own commands:

Code:
$ sudo  sh -c "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade && apt-get autoremove --purge"

or what amp prefers

Code:
$ sudo  sh -c "apt update && apt upgrade && apt autoremove"

It would not surprise me if there are GUIs around this task.


* You need to update what comes from Mrfixit by clicking on his icon.


I suggested some time ago in this very same thread https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?...5#pid48815 to provide deb packages for Mrfixit's changes so that they would be seamlessly installed as part of the apt-get commands, but that has not happened. Now, we need to update both parts separately.


Also, you got Debian 9 although the latest Debian version is 10. Debian 9 gets long term (security) support till 06/2022.
