Upgrading to Debian 10 at Linux VPS line

*Please note that Premium VPS line is not related to this article. You can install any distro of Linux on Premium VPS without any limitations.*

Debian 10 is not supported on OpenVZ 6 platform and it will not be supported.

As of July 1st, 2019, we have the new OpenVZ 7 platform available for new orders as well as migrations.

If your VPS is purchased before July 1st, 2019 and you haven't contacted us for a migration or re-creation on the new platform, then your VPS is on OpenVZ 6 platform.

To get your VPS migrated to the new platform and for more information, please see: https://vpsdime.com/announcements.php?id=199

If you're on our new platform, i.e: OpenVZ 7, you could upgrade your Debian 9 to Debian 10 and use it at your own risk.

To do so, please follow the instructions below:

1. Make sure you are using Debian 9 (cat /etc/*releases*)
2. Use the following commands to upgrade
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
sed -i 's/stretch/buster/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
sed -i 's/stretch/buster/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list
apt-get update
apt-get --with-new-pkgs upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
3. Replace "passwd: files systemd" in /etc/nsswitch.conf with "passwd: compat files systemd"
4. Replace "group: files systemd" in /etc/nsswitch.conf with "group: compat files systemd"
5. And then reboot
