Update sources list

So I found my develop PowerBook G4 onto which I made MintPPC. I haven’t touched this machine for a long time. I will start posting some updates to what I am doing. I will first update the sources.list in /etc/apt/sources.list. As the keyring has been expired I first need to update to the latest Debian ports archive keyring for sid. It can be found here:

wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/d/debian-ports-archive-keyring/debian-ports-archive-keyring_2023.02.01_all.deb

sudo dpkg -i debian-ports-archive-keyring_2023.02.01_all.deb

sudo apt update

1294 packages can be upgraded. Let’s see if that works:

sudo apt upgrade

Apparently that does not work, as some packages cannot be installed. exfat-utils conflicts, exfatprogs but 1.2.1-2 is to be installed.

sudo apt install exfatprogs

exfat-utils 1.3.0-2 is removed by this action

sudo apt upgrade

1111 upgraded, 81 newly installed , 0 to remove and 183 not upgraded, let’s go…

Day 2

Ok that worked only partially. Lots of broken dependencies. I did the following:

sudo apt upgrade --fix-broken

That also worked partially as some programs are not configured yet, so I issued a

sudo dpkg --configure -a

There are still some programs that cannot be configured due to dependency problems.

I cannot get it configured as I receive the following error:
Perl v5.32.0 required–this is only 5.30.3 stopped at ….

and more packages that cannot be configured due to this Perl version.

apparently there are some packages that require perl 5.30 or lower

sudo apt install perl

the following packages have unmet dependencies:
libclass-xcaccessor-perl : depends perl (< 5.40.4) but 5.36.0-8 is to be installed, same for
