I try to update a Debian 11.2 to today's current and when I click ''download updates'' this message appears:
How do I proceed?

you have a process running that is needed for the upgrade this will tell you the id of the process running apt.

ps -aux | grep -iE "apt"

Kill it with:
sudo kill -9 <process_id>
 
Thanks Brickwizard I managed to kill it and proceed with the update. Do you remember the command that gives the ''point'' version of the OS?
 
if you mean find your distribution details

lsb_release -d
 
if you mean find your distribution details

lsb_release -d
That command gives this result
Code:
Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye)
not very helpful, and it is the only command I can find with searches
 
what about inxi -Fnx
