Greetings from the Debian upgrade treadmill ;-)
I've learned it works most reliably if you upgrade in two
I just verify that it won't removing major packages, and do
a backup first if I see that the C libraries are going to change,
Although I benefit from the developments in multimedia
software I'm not sure I like exposing my system to so many
opportunities for failure.
A strategy I've used in past is to *not* upgrade until I
need something. Maybe could call it it "choose your own
I'm told this is sub-optimal because the package upgrade
scripts are not tested against all previous packages.
