Procedure for Debian apt-get upgrade

I successfully installed Jitsi-meet on a Debian server on 2020/04/01 using the procedure described at jitsi-meet/ at master · jitsi/jitsi-meet · GitHub . Now I want to upgrade using the latest stable Debian packages.

Common sense tells me that I should stop the daemons, do the upgrade, and then start them again. But, I am not sure how many daemons there and how to stop/start them.

Also, there have been a number of posts by people who have upgraded only to find that the upgraded installation does not work. It would be desirable to be able to upgrade routinely without having to trouble-shoot and hack after each upgrade.

Is this documented somewhere? Failing that, can someone advise? If someone can do that, I would be willing to write a Github wiki page describing the procedure (after testing it!).

Here are links to some reports of upgrade problems:

I got no replies to this post so I just did it!

cd ~
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

(Of course this upgrades everything, not just the Jitsi-related packages. That’s fine in this case since the server is a virtual cloud machine dedicated to the Jitsi server function.)

Then I connected with two different devices. Jitsi appeared to be working.

To be sure that the latest versions were executing I then did

shutdown now -r

After reboot, again connected with two devices. Jitsi appeared to be working.

For reference, the packages downloaded from the Jitsi apt server were:

Hope this is helpful to someone.
