NanoPi NEO2 NAS dock - update to buster?

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

I downloaded the official SD image for the NEO2 NAS and installed it and got it running. I wanted to update so with a little tinkering I changed /etc/apt/sources.list to this:

deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie main
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main
deb http://security.debian.org jessie/updates main

I did:
apt update
apt upgrade

and rebooted and everything was great. So I edited /etc/apt/sources.list again and replaced jessie with stretch and then:

apt update
apt upgrade
apt dist-upgrade

and rebooted and everything was great. So I edited /etc/apt/sources.list and replaced stretch with buster and then:

apt update
apt upgrade
apt dist-upgrade

and it wouldn't boot. I pulled the NEO2 off the dock and booted it up fine with a mUSB power cable.

Where did I go wrong???

Help!!!

If you were started with prehistoric kernel 3.4.y this is expected. On "official" images kernel remains the same. But also if you started with a bit more modern, a lot of things can go wrong from upgrade from Jessie to Buster.

Start with a clean image from https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-neo-2/
