Installing Home Assistant Supervised using Debian 12

remove the # from these 2 lines,

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ buster-updates main
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main

Control+x to save, then update using this

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

I’m sorry. I need that dumbed way down for me. I know it seems like I should know (and my SO just said “oh, he wants you to edit the config file” but he said he doesn’t know how) but - yeah. I get what you said, that a list of sources that Debian uses to install software isn’t up to date, but I have no idea where to go to type/enter anything. I’m sitting at my root prompt.

you posted a photo of what is in the file from nano so that is where you edit it. Nano is an editor.

Oh! Heh, ok, I’ll give it a shot.

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Arrow down and remove the # from these 2 line of that file (from the Pic you posted)

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ buster-updates main
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main

Control+x to save, y to confirm, then update using this.

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

I did it.

Then I retyped that long line. No good. I pulled up the editor again:

Did what exactly?

Did you update after removing the # from that file?

Do you have anything before the deb? Looks like there is something else there…

Also make sure.you have all six lines from kanga_who’s post

I did, yes.

I pulled up that file, I deleted the # from the two lines and the space that came after. I did Cntl-X, I pressed Y, I pressed Enter, I typed the line that you typed after you said “…, then update using this”

Nothing before the four deb. What do I delete, and where do I type in the new lines?

no it’s a mirror image if you zoom in.

I suspect he has network problems if it’s still not working.

@withay Can you ping deb.debian.org ?

(stepping away for a half hour or so - will be back!)

Sorry about that - back!

LOL So I guess, after I ping deb.debian.org, that a scrolling list of "64 bytes from (IP): icmp seq= 1,2,3,4,5,6… currently 122, 123, 124…

Means I have network issues.

As everything else in the house is fine, I’m guessing that the driver I selected was NOT the correct one.

When I put in my USB stick with what I THOUGHT was the correct driver - I was just taken back to “network card not found”.

I DO know there is a good network on the Mobo as I was using it just earlier before I started this process.

Mobo is an ASUS P8P67 Pro (Rev 3.1). Network is LAN Chipset Intel 82579

Found what I believe is the correct driver pack on Intel’s site. Downloading now. Then to figure out how to… Uh… DO it.

what did you do to sort it out?

can you show a picture of the output from ping as your response doesn’t make sense.

also output from command

ip a

you shouldn’t need to screw with this unless you’re using WLAN…

Ok, not sorted out.

Here’s the scroll that appeared after the ping until I cntl-c to stop it. Then is the ip a

I don’t know at this point what’s going on.

I just went in and deleted my four lines that started with “deb” and typed in what kanga_who had typed, the 6 lines, and we may have a victory - Lets find out!

Edit: Aaaaaand that did the trick.

I really appreciate the help and responses. And the patience!!

I’ll have more questions, I’m sure… :slight_smile:
