Upgrading to Bullseye?
We would also be interested in a bullseye upgrade for Unipi Neuron Series as we are currently facing issues with the systemd version that comes with buster.
Any updates on this matter?

Any updates for the upgrade to bullseye?
Any news @Martin-Kudláček ? A planning for this upgrade ?
we have good news!
All packages from the Unipi repository already have their version for Bullseye (Debian 11).
Unfortunately it took a little longer as it was not as easy as it first seemed, but now our packages can be used on all Unipi controllers with Debian 11.
We are now working on Bullseye OS images that we will release in the coming months. OS images will not be released immediately because we are working on a new unified approach to information about the controller and its peripherals.
For Unipi Neuron and Unipi 1.1 it is now possible to use the RaspberryPi OS image.
@AVsetula is it possible to get an early access to the debian 11 image ? Just got a set of 25 neurons and I'd rather use debian 11 even if it is still beta.
anyone having a hint how to upgrade now to Debian 11? I do not want to risk my installation here....
For Debian/ Raspbian I will have to replace "buster" with "bullseye", right?

Additionally I need to do the same here, correct?

Once edited, run
apt update; apt full-upgrade; apt autoremovebased on this tutorial.
Is this the way to go?
I did as shown above. Ended in an Neuron M103 not booting :(
Unfortunately I do not have a possibility to attach a screen to M103 (or can I use the HDMI of the inner Raspi?)
I ended up in restoring the previous image.
So I can not even tell what the issue was- I guess some kernel/ grub based issues.
At current stage I would recommend against the above upgrade procedure.
@knebb, I have been successful with my Axon device couple months ago.
Here is my /etc/apt/sources.list.d/unipi.list:
deb https://repo.unipi.technology/debian bullseye main
These are the steps I followed:
sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade sudo apt full-upgrade
I didn't remove any packages after
full-upgradeand simply rebooted with a backup in place. After restart, I removed all obsolete packages but those which had
axonin name (see later).
Currently, I'm still using the kernel from Buster because the kernel packages in Bullseye appear to be broken. If I understand correctly, we should be able to use
unipi-kernel-modules-dkmswith the normal Debian kernel. Unfortunately, it currently has broken dependencies, namely the unavailable
Here is the list of obsolete Buster packages I have left on hold:
Since I don't currently need a new kernel, I'm not in a rush to resolve this. However, it would be great to receive an official update.
