An important piece of information is 'how did you install Devuan
Ceres?'. If you upgraded from one major version to the next, be aware
certain packages may need to be upgraded before the final
dist-upgrading. I am using Devuan ASCII which I upgraded from Devuan
1) Changed /etc/apt/sources.list to point to ASCII instead of Jessie
and run 'apt-get update'.
2) Upgraded kernel, dpkg, apt, aptitude with all packages that were
pulled in the upgrade.
4) Run the final 'apt-get dist-upgrade'. That installed a long list
5) Rebooted again to test the newly upgraded system.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
