Updating and upgrading APT packages fail on UCM-iMX8M-Mini

Contributor I


I bought a UCM-iMX8M-Mini and followed these 3 steps to basically set up my device: 

But the problem is that whenever I try to update and upgrade my apt packages, it returns an error code as followed:

root@ucm-imx8mm-debian:~# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade -y

The command was even my first command after booting my device. Is there anything I should do except the 3 steps when setting up?

And also, I don't know if it matters, these messages I've never seen on my desktop are shown when dist-upgrading.

Installing new version of config file /etc/debian_version ...

Configuration file '/etc/issue'
==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:
Y or I : install the package maintainer's version
N or O : keep your currently-installed version
D : show the differences between the versions
Z : start a shell to examine the situation
The default action is to keep your current version.
*** issue (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ?
