    Using 'apt update' and 'apt upgrade' to upgrade packages in HS4Pi Image

    Is this OK to do or not? I did an 'apt update' and got the following:
    [
    <CODE>
    92 packages can be upgraded. Run 'apt list --upgradable' to see them.
    N: Repository 'http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'stable' to 'oldstable'
    N: Repository 'http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian buster InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'testing' to 'oldstable'
    </CODE>

    I want to run a python Serial-to-MQTT convertor along side of HS4 and a couple of the packages I need are out-of-date.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Yes, That's OK to do so. By the way, you will need to uninstall wiringPi and re-install the newer version to make the Z-Wave board little LED functional.

      Thanks for the confirmation. I don't have the Z-Wave board, but should probably update it anyway. I'm running on a Pi 400. Z-Wave is on the primary Windows 10 HS4Pro system. The HS4Pi will be used for interfacing with my energy monitoring systems.

        If you are installing a Python related application on the board you might want to read up on this. https://realpython.com/python-virtua...ents-a-primer/

          Thanks. I ALWAYS create virtual environments instead of adding anything to the system site packages. In this case, I needed python3-dev ( a .deb package) in order to compile some C bindings for low-level serial comms.
