Installing Home Assistant Supervised using Debian 12

Full disclosure I totally screwed up and downloaded the 32bit iso image for debian.

Went back and retraced my steps and downloaded the x64 debian iso and all is well with the world.

Apologies and thanks for all the help. I feel like a real moron right now.


Don’t worry mate - we have all been there done that. Great learning experience though!

You learn far more from your mistakes than your successes. I’ve learned a lot over the years :slight_smile:

Hey Guys,
I am struggling to install docker on my QNAP NAS. I installed Debian 10.9 and no matter what I do I got the following error:
E: Package ‘docker-ce’ has no installation candidate

Any suggestions?

See my error a few posts up, sounds similar. Of cpu isn’t 64 bit capable or U are loading 32 bit debian you will definitely get his error.

You might be better off looking at a QNAP guide.

I see there is a Docker update to version (debian buster arm64 here). After the recent problems with all Docker updates I’m a little bit hesitant to upgrade. Has anyone done that?

no problems here with 6.3…home assistant with several supervisor addons, portainer, pihole, mealie containers running fine.

Have you rebooted the host?

Of course, just because the update acted transparently for me, doesn’t mean that you’ll have the same experience. If you are a bleeding edge person like me, update…if not, wait a few days.

Just updated and rebooted, everything’s working fine. :slight_smile:

Followed the instructions with this result:

[info] Install supervisor Docker container
invalid reference format

How can this be fixed

What machine are you using?

Nevermind, I went to Virtualbox as it is meant to be an installation for testing purposes only.

Back in December (the 20th!) I successfully (with the help of people here!) installed this. It’s been working fine ever since.

HAS there been a Debian update since then?
DO I need to update Debian if there has been?
And if I do - is there a nice walkthrough guide like the initial installation process?

@withay The first commands you will enter, are all about upgrading the OS to latest stable.
They are valid even after the installation has completed.

if it working dont change it…

Oh, so it won’t wipe out my HA install?

Well, I was wondering about security updates, that kind of thing.

just do this apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade -y && apt autoremove -y
