Did you install libpam-elogind-compat?

Install antix19 -> upgrade all pkgs -> repo: deb http://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/mirrors/linux/mx/antix/buster buster main nonfree -> install elogind and libpam-elogind-compat -> sudo service elogind start -->> install gnome-shell ----->> unmet dependencies errors

Remove pkg cache - > Replace with repo: deb https://mirrors.netix.net/mx/MX-Packages/antix/buster buster main nosystemd nonfree --> update -- > install gnome-shell -----> works fine

It seems repo "/antix/buster buster main nonfree" is not needed.

The uoc mirror is not up to date, it seems.

Please check the mirror, so we get the right repo and install steps. In general looks good.

I tried converting MX 18.3 to Antix 19 with the repos, but its not smooth, removes important pkgs. Same as stretch to buster.

antiX-19 is still in alpha stage so I wouldn't even attempt to upgrade MX-18.3 using its own buster based repos let alone the antiX buster repos.

I have no control on whether the mirrors are up to date every day. I have to assume they are, or remove them from our repos list.

I managed to dist-upgrade MX18.3 with antiX19alpha repos, works well, except few MX tools. In this upgrade systemd was removed, and runs with sysvinit-core. There were minor tweaks such as "sudo apt --fix-broken install" and complete removal of network-manager and install again (didn't connect).
