Ahh you used Debian debs to get linuxcnc. (I looked in the forum post)
Those debs don't automatically get updated.
I think you are falling in a deep rabbit hole here.

I unfortunately do not have a good suggestion for you.

Hello Danny! I think this will help you forum.linuxcnc.org/9-installing-linuxcnc...cal-confused?start=0 #202082. That's how it works for me. I'm not a programmer and I don't know English, and everything works thanks to the forum specialists.

And this is my frustration with Linux.  Every time I try and use it for something, this is the situation I end up in.  What was once easy and only took 30 minutes to set up has since been broken and is now seemingly impossible...

So, is there no way to get to 2.9 with QTVCP working today?  I don't care what linux distro - I'm just looking for something that works so I can start testing...

This is basically how I started out.  I can't get it to upgrade from 2.8 to 2.9 on buster because of 100+ dependencies missing (because of changes from Python 2 to 3 if I understand properly).

I've even tried to map to the new repositories on Mint, but I can't get them to read when I put the distro as Vanessa or Jammy.  When I update, it says that the repository doesn't have a release file, so it's being skipped.

That is always because it is looking for a release file at the wrong place.
Check the repository entry you added, there is something missing or wrong there.

Debian Buster uses python3-pyqt5 5.11.3 (at the time of writing at least) - if that's old enough to work then that might be an option.

Or uninstall your debs and build linuxcnc from source to get the latest changes. It's not difficult if you follow the "Building LinuxCNC" manual . Heck you don't even need to uninstall your current debs if you use a RIP (run-in-place) "install".

OK, to update, I'm no closer to getting anything working.

I started to attempt the building from source, but that failed spectacularly. I just don't have enough Linux knowledge to try and get everything setup (dependencies, etc.) to make that work.

I them moved over to trying to install Buster, and that hasn't fared much better. I finally found the "firmware" version that contains the drivers I need for my wifi adapter, but once it's installed it looks like something out of 1992 (even though I have Cinnamon installed and activated). Everything looks/works very differently than the buster as part of the LinuxCNC ISO... On top of that, it's also giving me all kinds of problems. Says my user isn't in the "sudoer file" and I haven't been able to fix that. Just switched to root, and I can't get it to recognize the repositories so I can actually install LinuxCNC - I get GPG signing errors...

I really don't know why something that should be relatively simple is so hard.

I have two hard drives. On one linuxcnc2.8 second linuxcnc2.9. Both are installed from the official image. Especially for you, I go to linuxcnc 2.8 and edit the repository as in screenshot number 2. Click update-mark updates and we see that the system is ready to install linuxcnc2.9 and the necessary changes. It remains to click apply. When installing from an image, do not create a superuser. Desktop environment select mate.
