    ok... I did my python 3.9 upgrade on my Rpi3b+ ... here's what I learned: 1) If you're running Debian Buster, you really probably want to upgrade to Bullseye first https://www.tomshardware.com/how-to/upgrade-raspberry-pi-os-to-bullseye-from-buster If you stay on buster, then homeassistant won't start until you build libffi-3.3 as below: 2021-12-29 16:51:14 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.auth.providers] Unable to load auth provider homeassistant: libffi.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory https://community.home-assistant.io/t/python-install-on-raspberry-pi-os/241558/12 wget "https://github.com/libffi/libffi/releases/download/v3.3/libffi-3.3.tar.gz" tar zxf libffi-3.3.tar.gz cd libffi-3.3 ./configure sudo make install sudo ldconfig Other than that, it was pretty straightforward. Do be aware that after you redeploy home assistant, a LOT of stuff is happening in the background and it will take a while before everything comes up. Don't freak out. Don't reboot or power cycle. Instead, do this: tail -f /var/log/homeassistant/home-assistant.log and watch the updates
