The deepin desktop environment related packages have been updated up to the latest versions and moved to a separated repository.

Due to a few dependency problems, all dde related packages have been moved to new sparky’s “dde” repository:
deb https://sparkylinux.org/repo dde main
deb-src https://sparkylinux.org/repo dde main

stored in:
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky-dde.list
The new repos will be set via the latest version of ‘sparky-apt’ package.

Updating existing sparky’s dde installation as follow:

Easy way:
sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade --no-install-recommends

Then run APTus-> Install-> Desktop-> Deepin

Manual way:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install sparky-apt

then edit & enable new dde repos in the file:
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky-dde.list
and upgrade all packages:
sudo apt full-upgrade --no-install-recommends

Make sure everything is ok:
sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt -install -f

Due to temporary problems with lightdm + ddm (fresh installation only), slim is installed and set as default, instead of lightdm. If your lightdm has no problem to log in to the ddm desktop, simply remove or disable slim:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm
