As you may know, an update has been recently released for Raspbian Jessie a few days ago. It has nice features, and solves many annoying bugs:


I'm using Minibian OS, a perfect minimal version of Raspbian OS.



I wanted to know, is it possible to upgrade Minibian to the latest framework by running the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Or do I have to wait until the Minibian developer releases an update for it?

Thanks for your help and time.

Edit 1

The following are the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http //mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main firmware non-free
deb http //archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ jessie main

If you are using Raspbian repository you can update it now.

If you are using special for Minibian repository you have to wait for Minibian devs to sync this changes.

You can check your repository looking in /etc/apt/sources.list file.

  • Thanks @Huczu for your answer. I checked the /etc/apt/sources.list file. You can see its contents in Edit 1 on main topic. Does this mean that I can update it myself, and I don't have to wait for Minibian developers?
