I am trying to install QGIS 3.10.2 on Debian Testing. I read the install instructions and have updated my apt sources.list file to:

deb https://qgis.org/debian buster main
deb-src https://qgis.org/debian buster main

There is no bullseye or testing distro in the repository, so I defaulted to buster; I have also tried using unstable. I have purged previous installs of grass and qgis.

When I install QGIS after updating apt, it only installs the LTR (3.4.15). Any suggestions? (I have also tried using the nightly build repo to no avail.)

  • Do these instructions work? gis.stackexchange.com/questions/133033/… – DPSSpatial Feb 8 at 15:14
  • No. Those instructions basically describe what I am doing already. I set my sources.list to what should be the newest repo, but I still get the LTR. – midden Feb 10 at 15:31
  • Using that repository you should be getting version 3.10. If you switched it to debian-ltr as per the QGIS.org instructions, you would get v 3.4. The instructions I posted above will give you version 3.10 – DPSSpatial Feb 10 at 16:17
  • @DPSSpatial: What you say is what I expected but did not observe. I am working with four Debian-based Linux machines, one on Buster (stable), and three on Bullseye (testing). The stable machine installed 3.10 no problem. The testing machines all refuse to upgrade (these three also all had the LTR version installed subsequently, but purged before attempting to install 3.10). – midden Feb 11 at 17:11
  • Instead of using 'buster' in the repository name I think you should be using the 'bionic' repository... could you try that instead? I don't know if the 'buster' version is fully functioning yet... – DPSSpatial Feb 11 at 17:27
