I finally got the update to take and it worked beautifully… Until I updated the source.list and installed the update via apt-get. What resulted was an updated system, but all network connections disabled. No WiFi or USB-ETH. I ended up having to start from scratch and try again.
This time, when I got to the final update process, I fixed the source.list with:
sudo sed -i – ‘s/debian-mirror.sakura.ne.jp/ftp.[us].debian.org/’ /etc/apt/sources.list
What exactly did you change in the sources.list file? I got an unknown command error when running your sudo sed command. sed: -e expression #1, char 1: unknown command: ?’ `
this is what my sources.list file looks like now:
# deb http://debian-mirror.sakura.ne.jp/debian/ stretch main
deb http://debian-mirror.sakura.ne.jp/debian/ stretch main
deb-src http://debian-mirror.sakura.ne.jp/debian/ stretch main
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main
# stretch-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://debian-mirror.sakura.ne.jp/debian/ stretch-updates main
deb-src http://debian-mirror.sakura.ne.jp/debian/ stretch-updates main
I’ve gone through this guide (except for changing source.list to buster) but I think I may have messed something up along the way. I used to just get stuck on a loading screen (similar to @nouty) when booting the gameshell but now I just get stuck on a linux screen. I ran that same DISPLAY=:0 ./load.sh command and got this error:
Edit: I realized that I do have an empty Menu folder since I did this command:
Are we supposed to move everything from these folders
