Thanks for the advice.  I don't know if it makes sense
for the list, but.....

Starting with Debian-Stretch and Samba-Stretch410, I
changed all the references from "stretch" to "buster"
in sources.list, sources.list.d/main.list &

Then I ran:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

However, when I try to run

apt-get full-upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

I noticed that all the samba packages are being removed.
If I go ahead and run the command (including
--autoremove and --purge), then upon reboot samba
is gone... poof.

Should I be going from Stretch-samba49 -> buster-sabma410
instead of Stretch-samba410 -> buster-sabma410?
Am I missing some command syntax?

Where am I going wrong?
