Upgrading DC1 at site 3 (next site ;-))

I edited sources.list and van-belle.list (s/stretch/buster/g ...)

apt-get update: ok

apt-get upgrade: as well

apt-get dist-upgrade: DANGER

-> it tells me it would remove samba!

Die folgenden Pakete werden ENTFERNT:
  libcurl3 libkdb5-8 libmariadbclient18 libnss-winbind libpam-winbind
libsmbclient libuptimed0 python3-ldb python3-samba samba samba-common-bin
  samba-dsdb-modules samba-libs samba-vfs-modules winbind

Same as on DC2 lately ... this wiped /var/lib/samba etc

I say "no" now ...


additional info:

root at adc1:~# apt-cache policy samba
  Installiert:           2:4.10.10+dfsg-0.1~stretch~1
  Installationskandidat: 2:4.10.10+dfsg-0.1~stretch~1
 *** 2:4.10.10+dfsg-0.1~stretch~1 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     2:4.10.10+dfsg-0.1~buster~1 500
        500 http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian buster-samba410/main amd64
     2:4.9.5+dfsg-5+deb10u1 500
        500 http://security.debian.org buster/updates/main amd64 Packages
     2:4.9.5+dfsg-5 500
        500 http://debian.lagis.at/debian buster/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster/main amd64 Packages

So I assume I have to tell apt to somehow "force" the buster-variant
over the stretch-variant, without removing any config and database files.
