In current bullseye image , here is the content of /etc/apt/sources.list :

deb bullseye main contrib non-free
while, on a "regular" Debian system (installed with debian-installer), it is something like :

deb bullseye main
deb-src bullseye main

deb bullseye-security main
deb-src bullseye-security main

# bullseye-updates, to get updates before a point release is made;
# see
deb bullseye-updates main
deb-src bullseye-updates main

Is it on purpose that bullseye-security and bullseye-updates repositories have been removed?

Aren't we missing at least some security updates without them?


Indeed, when editing sources.list from :
deb bullseye main contrib non-free
deb bullseye main contrib non-free
deb bullseye-security main contrib non-free
deb bullseye-updates main contrib non-free

Some security updates are found :
$ apt list --upgradable
Listing... Done
gzip/stable-security 1.10-4+deb11u1 armhf [upgradable from: 1.10-4]

zlib1g/stable-security 1:1.2.11.dfsg-2+deb11u1 armhf [upgradable from: 1:1.2.11.dfsg-2]


The /etc/apt/sources.list file content is still the same in latest image provided by Olimex:

Has it been done on purpose by Olimex, or can we safely add the missing lines?


thanks for the feedback, the developers are notified, they will iinclude bullseye-updates and bullseye-security in the next release


Thanks for your answer @olimex.

So I've added these lines manually in my running boards
