Cannot update Buster

Thu Jul 11, 2019 11:04 am

I have just installed Buster using 2019-06-20-raspbian-buster-full.zip.
When I try to update from the menu I get an error saying a package could not be retrieved.
When I use 'apt-get update' I get an error message saying 'testing' has been renamed 'stable'.
It also says explicit approval is needed to use the repo, but no indication how, other than refer me to
'man apt-secure' which I did not find useful.

How do I update Buster?

When you receive the message, it is more than you published, it has a yes / no option.

Type y and press Enter Key and it will update the sources.......
