@Rohithkolipaka follow the below steps to upgrade from Stretch to Buster,

Open terminal and type the following commands

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

apt-get dist-upgrade


@pavan You missed a step there.

Step 1 : Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and also every list inside /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ to make sure that the entries of stretch are changed to buster :hugs:

Added to that even what pavan posted can also be right if there is only reference to stable instead of stretch in your sources.list but its recommended to make sure everything is pointed to the buster release which is the current stable version.
