So, I updated to the official release version earlier this morning…. and was working on getting my InfiniBand cards up and running…
Well, I needed the infiniband diag tools, so, I ran:
[email protected]:~# apt-get install infiniband-diags bash: /bin/apt-get: Permission denied
Oh, that is interesting.
So, I googled around, and found this: https://www.truenas.com/community/threads/no-apt-after-update-to-release.99579/
Seems… it was disabled by design, because people do dumb stuff, make their installations unsupportable…. and, then ask for support.
Well….. I want my infiniband working. So, how do we resolve this?

If, you re-enabled apt-get, decided to do something stupid, such as running apt-get upgrade, and completely bricked your OS/Install…. PLEASE do us all a favor, slap yourself, and just reinstall instead of blowing up reddit and support because you did something unsupported…..
If you don’t know the implications of doing something, DON’T DO IT!
Also, if you DO understand the implications of something, and you know to not blow up support channels as a result of your actions, you can also update /etc/apt/sources.list to add in the debian repos… since, the ix-repos… are much smaller.
vi /etc/apt/sources.list (Add the below lines) deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main I removed the other repos.... since it is shipped with apt-disabled anyways.
