As long as the DB is up and running a current or previous version of the schema, and caldavd.plist is properly configured to access that DB, running calendarserver_upgrade is expected to ensure upgrade to the current schema and data version. There are of course errors that can occur during upgrade, but these are not specific to Linux and generally have more to do with unexpected data in the DB. As always, please report any issues you encounter.

Ok. Also, it would be good if calendarserver_bootstrap_database would 
work in cases other than that of peer authentication. As I don't use 
peer authentication, I have to manually run the create user, create db 
and import schema commands. My understanding is that 
calendarserver_bootstrap_database cannot currently be used for remote 
postgresql servers.

Thanks for the quick responses. I have finished packaging and testing 
calendarserver 5.1 for Debian. It should be in the Debian repos in a 
couple of days.
