New Buster Installation ... testing channel ??

Thu Feb 13, 2020 8:48 am

Hello
I installed a new SD Card with Raspian Buster light (Version 2019-09-26 ... 3 weeks ago) ....
I do upgrades with:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-ge full-upgrade

Why is kernel/bootloader directed to testing channel ?!?!?

yesterday it loaded:

raspberrypi-kernel/testing,now 1.20200212-1 armhf [installed]

There is nothing to find in internet about 20200212-1 ?!?!?

Please help
Richard

apt is the recommendation, not apt-get:

Take what I advise as advice not the utopian holy grail, and it is gratis !!

All packages in archive.raspberrypi.org are 'testing'. If we change it then we will have the same issue as when Debian bumped stable to Buster - apt stops working until people manually accept that change. Since most people have no idea what that means, it's just a confusing message. Worse, apt-get doesn't tell you how to fix it.
