Q4OS Orion updates.

Good day!
On my old good Lenovo 3000 N100 notebook I still have Q4OS 1.8.10-n1 Orion installed.
The problem is, that some packages does not updating through repositories. For instance packages from jessie-backports are not available at all. So, I disabled jessie-backports repository.
And some packages from jessie-updates are not available (screenshot). Is it normal?

Re: Q4OS Orion updates.

I think this is normal, if you read the link I'm posting it should help, as you will see (near the bottom) you can use the archive repository.

Re: Q4OS Orion updates.

Thank you, Dai_trying!
So, I should remove jessie-updates and jessie-backports from /etc/apt/sources.list and add

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

as described here https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/Using if I want to recieve updates till 2020-06-30?
On that notebook I do not need jessie-backports.

Yes I think that should work ok but I don't have an old installation to try it.

Re: Q4OS Orion updates.

You can update sources list manually, or it's possible to run following commands for automatic setup:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install q4os-base
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Re: Q4OS Orion updates.

If Q4OS Orion was freshly installed and the following commands were run (as shown in q4osteam post above):

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install q4os-base
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Would this allow immediate access and installation of all Debian 8 updates (regular and extended-support)? Thank you.

Yes, Debian repositories will be configured as described here https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/Using . You can check that using command:
$ qrepolist

Re: Q4OS Orion updates.

Will Q4OS Orion / Debian 8 updates be removed on the end-of-support date (June 30, 2020) and no longer be available via apt-get? Or do they keep them available for a while after the updates end? Thank you.
