Time to upgrade - but it has been a long time

Hi all,

I have not updated my Vero 4Ks for quite some time. Mainly because I have enough machines requiring regular installation of updates, and I also have custom code that queries the MySQL DB (and the new Kodi version has different database names/schema). The Vero 4Ks have been very stable, and behind a firewall, so security has not been a big issue. I have also updated my remote config, which may get over-written.

Currently, uname -a returns: 3.14.29-160-osmc #1 SMP Sun Sep 13 13:55:21 UTC 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux

apt-get update returns (I have changed the output due to forum posting requirements):

Get:1 security.debian.org buster/updates InRelease [65.4 kB]
Get:2 ftpDOTdebianDOTorg/debian buster InRelease [122 kB]

Does anyone with a Vero 4K know what /etc/apt/sources.list should contain? After updating my sources, is it just a matter of apt-get update then apt-get dist-upgrade? I’m hoping to avoid installing a new image.

Thanks in advance! I had a look under the Help and Support category for something similar (to avoid duplicate posts) but nothing immediately jumped out.

These devices have uptimes of many months. I love them - they just work :smiley:
