I hope that someone on the list can help you build Debian packages.  When 
you find the time, you must upgrade by at most 2 Slurm versions at a time, 
so you have to upgrade in two steps, for example 18.08->19.05->20.11.

My Slurm upgrade instructions refer to CentOS, but the overall process 
would be the same for all Linuxes:
Please read carefully the existing documentation from SchedMD linked to in 
this page.

I upgrade Slurm frequently and have no problems doing so.  We're at 
20.11.7 now.  You should avoid 20.11.{0-2} due to a bug in MPI.
