Ahh, yes, I screwed up -- I certainly did imply that, but both the Jessie and 
the Buster system are already installed and being used, I would not want to 
reinstall the Jessie system, I might consider reinstalling the Buster system, 
I might even replace it with testing as, for some purposes, I need a Firefox 
more up-to-date than that in Buster.   

(I tried to join a Zoom meeting and could not get sound, I got a message that 
my Firefox was not new enough.)

At least for the Jessie system, I'd like to install some encrypted filesystems 
without reinstalling (or replacing) Jessie.
