Upgrading Debian Etch Machines to Lenny

Step-1
First set your /etc/apt/sources.list to point to Lenny repositories:

deb http://ftp.gb.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.gb.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free




Step-2
Update your local cache and get the latest apt, aptitude and dpkg versions.
# aptitude update
# aptitude install apt dpkg aptitude

Step-3
Perform a full-upgrade, which will finally update your machine from Etch to Lenny.
# aptitude full-upgrade
