I have just run apt update on a system that has been working for a long time, and got the following error.

Get:1 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster InRelease [15.0 kB]
Get:2 http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian buster InRelease [25.2 kB]
E: Repository 'http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian buster InRelease' changed its 'Origin' value from 'Raspbian' to 'Raspberry Pi Foundation'
E: Repository 'http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian buster InRelease' changed its 'Label' value from 'Raspbian' to 'Raspberry Pi Foundation'
E: Repository 'http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian buster InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'stable' to 'testing'

/etc/apt/sources.list is

deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpi

and

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list is

deb http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ buster main

When I search on line, I find stuff about when a debian version is end of lifed. However buster is still the current stable, and I did not use version code stable I used buster. Also there seems to be a name change. And most concerningly the suite moved from stable to testing.

How do I fix it? I want to stay on buster (stable).

    And what is the question? Do you want confirmation of the change? I haven't seen that on my updates. – Ingo May 9 at 16:36
  • It's not a problem. Use sudo apt-get update just once and it will be automagically fixed. – Dougie May 10 at 9:09
  • @Dougie the message ends "N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details. Do you want to accept these changes and continue updating from this repository? [y/N]" This states that saying yes, will make the error message go away. Nothing about fixing it. – ctrl-alt-delor May 10 at 21:22
  • Fixing == Going away. Just reply Y and be done with it. It's not going to hurt. – Dougie May 10 at 22:55
