How to upgrade to Debian 8.3 from Debian 8.2


After Debian 8.2 comes the latest update from the Debian development community, the distro Debian 8.3. You can choose to download the ISO directly if you don't have Debian yet or upgrade your Debian distro to this latest version from Debian 8.2. This is a stable release, the third of Debian 8 Jessie. Debian 8.3 brings new features and above all important improvements over the previous release.

Debian 8.3 above all implements security updates for the operating system, something extremely important. In addition, the programs that are already installed by default are improved as usual. All of this is an improvement that is probably not visually striking, but is a major update for Debian users. You may see all changes in full in this link.

Debian from which many others derive and therefore all this work not only affects the Debian project itself, but also other projects that use this as a base, such as Ubuntu. Well, if you already have this mega distribution installed, you can upgrade from Debian 8.2 from the terminal by typing the following commands:

  • See the current version:
uname -mrs

lsb_release -a

  • Now we update the repositories:
sudo apt-get update

  • We update packages from the distro:
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

  • We can see the result with:
lbs_release -a

The other option is download the Debian 8.3 ISO from the web. You will find it available for various architectures and in different formats, such as for installation from the network, for CDs or small-capacity USBs, or the Live or installable image of the operating system. I hope you enjoy this great distro ...
