Filed under

The Debian project is pleased to announce the ninth update of its stable distribution Debian 10 (codename buster). This point release mainly adds corrections for security issues, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories have already been published separately and are referenced where available.

Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of Debian 10 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old buster media. After installation, packages can be upgraded to the current versions using an up-to-date Debian mirror.

Those who frequently install updates from won't have to update many packages, and most such updates are included in the point release.

Debian 10.9 Released With FWUPD SBAT Support, Bug Fixes

More from Andrew Cater

  • Andrew Cater: Debian 10.9 release - 202103271900UTC - pushing through live image testing

    So we're a fair way through the release, then. Testing of almost all the standard images has finished. Pretty much all of the disk images are now complete and in place.

    People are working their way through the tests of the debian-live images in the various desktop flavours. These have to be done on real hardware - so it does take time. A new tester - peylight - has dropped in to help for the first time. Sqrt{not} has also joined us from the other end of the timezone scale - we have somebody at UTC-0700 and somebody at UTC+0430 today. All of the help from all the testers is very welcome, as ever.

A couple more about Debian

  • Debian Linux 10.9 released and here is how to upgrade it

    The Debian GNU/Linux project has released an updated version of its stable Linux distribution Debian 10 (“buster”). You must upgrade to get corrections for security problem as this version made a few adjustments for the severe issue found in Debian version 10.8. Debian is a Unix-like (Linux distro) operating system and a distribution of Free Software. It is mainly maintained and updated through the work of many users who volunteer their time and effort. The Debian Project was first announced in 1993 by Ian Murdock.

  • Debian 10.9 Released With Added FWUPD SBAT Support

    The Debian project announces the 9th update of its stable distribution Debian 10 “Buster”. The release mainly adds corrections for security issues.

    Debian doesn’t follow a fixed release schedule, and that makes it somewhat hard to know exactly when a new release will be available. Debian 10, codename Buster, was released on July 6, 2019.

    At any given time, there is one stable release of Debian, which has the support of the Debian security team. The new stable point release 10.9 mainly adds corrections for security issues, along with a few adjustments for serious problems.

Debian Buster 10.9 Is Released

  • Debian Buster 10.9 Is Released

    Minor versions don't really mean anything on Debian, it is just its developers way of reminding people that they should open a terminal and type sudo apt -y update && sudo apt -y upgrade once in a while. They do list some security-updates for the ancient packages Debian Buster carries in their announcement.


    Running sudo apt -y upgrade afterwards will get you all the shiny "new" (well, changed) packages in the Debian 10.9 "release". The list of those packages can be found in the 10.9 release announcement at It is just a list of very small changes and security updates such as fixes for out-of-bounds reads, format string vulnerabilities and things like that.

    You can check what Debian Buster version you are using after you have upgraded by taking a look at /etc/debian_version.

    The core packages and the desktop environments in Debian Buster are still at the same version numbers they were when it was released two years ago. As we already mentioned, Debian is a very conservative distribution when it comes to updates. The developers aren't going to provide new packages just because Xfce 4.16 or GNOME 40 are released, you still get Xfce 4.12.2 from half a decade ago if you choose to use the Xfce desktop environment on Debian. Some prefer it that way, and if you do then Debian Buster 10.9 is probably something you will like and enjoy using.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
