I will post it here, since I cannot find chat to ask a question or any specific place to post bugs. Sorry, if it's wrong place to post such bug, redirect me in right direction please.

My setup

Freshly (10.01.2018) downloaded and installed elementary os. No additional PPAs. After installation my work've been:

apt update; apt upgrade; apt install chromium-browser firefox mc pydf grc zsh git transmission; dpkg -i ~/Downloads/slack.deb ; apt install -f; apt autoremove

So, I have pretty standard system.

Problem

apt update leads to

--- ~ » sudo apt update                                                                                                               100 ↵

My hypotesis

cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elementary.list

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu loki main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu loki main

There should be xenial instead of loki. Same goes for

  • /etc/apt/sources.list.d/appcenter.list
  • /etc/apt/sources.list.d/patches.list

Taken actions

I've done this find /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ -type f -exec sed -i.bak -e 's/loki/xenial/' '{}' \; Then apt upgrade. Below lies output of apt upgrade

Need to get 13,4 MB of archives.
After this operation, 20,9 MB of additional disk space will be used.

Many packages with names pantheon-*, switchboard-*, *gala*, *vala* etc, lead me to think, that this is correct decision.

Question

Is my actions from previous section is the right ones? Am I safe to upgrade? (I think so). If that's the case - should I report it somewhere else? Make a simple PR? (cannot find related repo though)

I checked my version of the two files. And both contain the line: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu xenial main

The elementary.list file also have a deb-src line. deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu xenial main

I have not edited these files myself at any point, so this should be the out-of-box version. I will guess that you are correct and it is safe to upgrade.
