The upgrade from Raspbian Stretch to Raspbian 10 Buster is a relatively simple procedure. However, exercise caution, as there is always a chance to break the entire system. The fewer installed 3rd-party packages and services, the more likely you are able successfully to upgrade your Raspbian Linux system.

This article describes a simple way to create a home made debian package and include it into a local package repository.

Once our package is ready, we will include it into our local package repository. This article illustrates a very simplistic approach, however it may serve as a template in many different scenarios.

In this tutorial you will learn:
  • How to create a trivial debian package
  • How to create a local debian repository
  • How to add the repository to the list of software sources
