It looks like you are running jessie. The most current OS is buster. This means not only has jessie been archived but so has stretch.

I would not run the "dist-upgrade" option without making a backup the the SD card.

HI,

Just a heads up the installer does not work with the new "Buster" images, missing packages..

No worries, by the time RPi Cam is updated the Raspberry Pi 4k camera module will be out, with IR cut version, zoom lens and af!
