I'm asking because there are users having the same problem and asking on Facebook.

The new correct version will upgrade over the bad version. If you have manually installed the new "+2" version, you should not have to do any upgrade.

I just cleared things up with Tim, I wasn't clear enough in my PM about having to replace the packages as well as as the original source tarball I misbuilt...the new ones will appear shortly.

I would move the 2018 posts.
lenovo ThinkPad T530 - MX-18.3
lenovo s21e - antiX-19 beta 2 (live-USB)
FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.
