    Regular way to do “Debian way” upGRADe from lower to higher release:

    First you would change the sources to those of a newer distro.

    Example: https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/release-notes/ch-upgrading.html

    DO NOT USE THESE! It´s example and it´s for Debian; Anti can give you exact sourcess needed for antiX 17.

    Then you would execute 4 commands: (sudo –> gives you appropriate rights (makes you temp root))

    sudo apt-get update –> updates repo data bank
    sudo apt-get upgrade –> makes upDATe
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade –> makes upGRADe
    sudo apt-get autoremove –> removes junk

    You can also chain them. You have to read the output of the Terminal to see if the last one is needed but, usualy it is.

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    
    sudo apt-get autoremove

    well, i used all of these commands from my Antix 16 terminal but, after reboot, it did NOT update anything so it is still 16 version.
    How come ?

    Also i realized Antix 16 is so slow……i mean, it is slower than WINDOWS XP so maybe should i change linux version in order to get faster pc performance ? (my pc is very old)

    You haven’t told us the specs. Post the output of inxi -v8 in a terminal

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    … i used all of these commands from my Antix 16 terminal but, after reboot, it did NOT update anything so it is still 16 version.
    How come ?

    Simple. Like so many people out there, you mixed “upDATE” and “upGRADE”.

    You are not trying to upDATE but, upGRADE from one release to another one!
    Those commands DID update — if there was something to update but, what you are trying to do is not what you are doing.

    Updating Photoshop 12 will update it but, it’ll still stay at 12 and not become 16.
    Upgrading will bring it from 12 to 13 to 14 to 15 to 16 …

    With:

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    1. … you upDATE your current 16 release to the latest stand,

    2. Change the Repositories to those of 17 so you could upGRADE (like in Example above but, you change to the sources that Anti will give you),

    3. Repeat the command AFTER the Repositories got changed,

    4. Then you “tiger around” and wait and pray and hope it’ll still work (since the fresh 17 install already didn’t work, NO upgrade even will be better).

    That’s exactly what I wrote above.
    You didn‘t change the repos to 17.

    „jessie“ == Debian 8 (Basis for AntiX 16.x)
    „stretch“ == Debian 9 (Basis for AntiX 17.x)

    Can antiX-16 be "upgrade" to antiX-17?

    We’re talkin’ about:

    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list

    If you open it, it’ll read:

    # Use with Debian Stable/stretch repositories. Set as default for antiX-17. Note new repos
    deb https://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/mxlinux/antix/stretch/ stretch main nosystemd
    #deb https://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/mxlinux/antix/stretch/ stretch main nosystemd

    Notice that “stretch” instead of “jessie”?

    I’d recommend to stick with 16 since it’s working.
    You’ll not get better or quicker OS on that HW.
    Security is least problem on such machine.
    Debian 8 “Jessie” is still supported.

    If you still wanna risk, proceed on your own risk.

    1. Make backup of your OS with Clonezilla first
    2. Download my file and unpack it
    3. Open Terminal and execute:
    sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d /etc/apt/sources.list.old.d
    sudo mv /PATH/TO/UNPACKED/FILE/sources.list.d /etc/apt/sources.list.d
    5. log out / log in
    6. Open Terminal and execute:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    7. Wait, hope and pray …

    It’s very well possible that you’ll kill your System since, that’s how it all started …

    8. Wait until is done, READ & MAKE NOTES of EXACT messages if some problem appear.
    9. Reboot after it’s all done
    10.Open Terminal and execute:
    sudo apt-get autoremove

    If all went well, you have almost the same what you had before your upgrade.
    If you can’t start at all or your USB doesn’t work any more or … don’t bother.
    That’s why you made Clonezilla system image at the beginning. Put it back and enjoy.

    Note that you might still need to change the Kernel and add Pulse Audio & pavucontrol manually.

    Hey! Don’t give up the ship yet! I rock a Pentium 2 with slower clock speed, less memory, and the same clunky HDD as you have, and 17.2 works just fine. Might find another HDD and install on that off the Live CD, then move whatever files you wish to save off the old one, as its not the best drive in the universe. I might be doing much the same thing eventually as I am just learning the ropes of this OS, but the HDD is starting to misbehave..though its 20 years old, so can’t complain all that much, right?

    There are many things one could try, it is only the question of how much one knows and how much time one is ready to invest.

    In this case, knowledge might be the limiting factor as we could see on update / upgrade / sources understanding.

    Possibly easiest way would be to take the HD out and put it another computer, install it there and swap the HD again but, that is also without the warranty that the same problem we started with, will not reappear.

    I really do not see much sense in not leaving it as is, with 16 installed.

    It works fine, is still supported, so what is the point?

    So lack of ram does not figure into this laptop running 32 bit antiX. Only reason it is 32 bit. The hard drive came out of a older single core 64 bit laptop with no copious amounts of ram in it. This install is now years old since 2015. But it is current.

    Now for the bad on what I am posting. You have MB of updates if installing 15 . Mine has been upgraded slowly and normally since I slapped this drive in here.
    But the initial physical install of drive and powering on this laptop?

    I pulled in 250MB of updates to bring it up to date. Using sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    Having run this distro for years. I am finally getting the hang of accepting or denying the package maintainers version when it comes to /etc changes.
    You will probably ask. But that is for later. After a successful install.

    You will also notice the AntiX 15 in my readout even though I have dist-upgraded for years. Because? We like to know what you started with.
    That is all. No biggy for me. Should be no biggy for you.

    nothing to do, i tried to update to 17 version from 16 but it killed my Antix 16 installation so now it doesn’t even boot.

    How can i restore my Antix 16 ?

    1. Make backup of your OS with Clonezilla first

    Simply restore your Clonezilla backup which you did before starting the upgrade.

    Also i realized Antix 16 is so slow……i mean, it is slower than WINDOWS XP so maybe should i change linux version in order to get faster pc performance ?

    Just like Ubuntu 18.04 is slower then 16.04, is slower then 14.04, is slower then 12.04, is slower then 10.04 …

    Older OS’s are always quicker on deprecated HW. Also, don’t forget that antiX 17 is a Debian 9 and Debian 9 is slow.
    Try installing Ubuntu 6.06.2 LTS, Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS or Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS if you don’t need any new Software but, if you are happy with what comes preinstalled.
    If you need something up to date and want to install additional SW, the only chance you can still make youre HW usable is to try to make a frugal install of Core.

    https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=tinycore

    Obviously, you should download CorePlus 9.0 (106 MB) version and READ FIRST.

    thanks but the fact is now i can NOT boot my Antix 16 anymore.

    When i select Antix 16 boot (instead of my WINDOWS XP PRO boot), i get a black screen with alghoritmic characters…
    Is there any way to repair antix 16 installation or should it be better to format everything and reinstall Antix 16 from start ?

    Is there any way to repair antix 16 installation

    Unlikely, better start all over again. But anyway if I get this right in your inxi -v8, then you gave antix only 4.03 GiB place used already used: 3.02 GiB . This is really little, especially if you want to upgrade.Maybe just enough to try it out.So, if you like to keep antix16 give it some more place.

    BTW, I still think this hardware should be able to boot antix17.2.2 live.There’s a DVD-player.Maybe try the antix-base on cd or antix-full on DVD.
    How did you install antix16 ?
