Sparky rolling installation breakdown
« on: July 21, 2019, 01:44:55 pm »
Due to changing Debian repos, the Calamares installer break the installation process on rolling 5.x images (5.8 stable is already updated).

To install a rolling iso do:
1. Disable internet connection so Calamares will not try to update package list
or
2. Use Sparky Advanced Installer which asks for upgrading the installer, but you don't need to do so; installation of a new desktop via the Minimal image can be ok, but can't be sure - main Debian repos with no changes, but security Debian repos is changed.
