-Buster ​is still testing and has no proper security supportI strongly recommend against using Buster ​on a server ​already.+Although my page is aimed at desktop usage, please don't use the above sources.list on a server! There it should look something like this.
-===== Stretch ===== +If you are using fast-moving packages like ClamAV you should also enable the '​stretch-updates'​ repositoryAnd for firmware files (sometimes necessary on servers) you should add the "non-free" section as well.

-Although my page is aimed at desktop usage, please don'​t ​use the above sources.list ​on a server! There it should look something like this. +You can still use Stretch safely ​on a server, but you should ​upgrade before july 2020 as the security support ​for Buster will end then (unless you run an LTS supported version).
