I'm trying to obtain an extended trill on an "e" with an indication
that the other note must be "f#".

In the docs, I found the following for the extended trill:

    \property Voice.TextSpanner \set #'style = #'trill
    \property Voice.TextSpanner \set #'edge-height = #'(0 . 0)
    \property Voice.TextSpanner \set #'edge-text
     = #(cons (make-musicglyph-markup "scripts-trill")  "")
    e2 ~#(ly:export (make-span-event 'TextSpanEvent START)) |
    e4 #(ly:export (make-span-event 'TextSpanEvent STOP))

In the ML, a solution for the combination with an accidental was given as:

    \override TextSpanner #'edge-text = #(cons (markup #:musicglyph "scripts-trill" 
#:raise 0.8 #:flat) "")

but this does not work, at least with the version (2.1.0) I use:
Parsing...ERROR: Unbound variable: markup

How should I do it?

This is one feature where the syntax and semantics has changed since
2.1.0. I hope you have access to the documentation corresponding to your
version, still it can be a bit tricky to translate a mailing list
answer to the correct version.

I use Debian GNU/Linux and I wonder why no package more recent than 2.1.0
is present on the Debian mirror sites.

Debian has always been restrictive about including too new versions to
for stability reasons. I'm not sure it always helps. However, if you
follow the instructions at -> Downloads, you can
easily download newer LilyPond versions for Debian.

I tried to search the ML archive (for a solution to my question above)
but whatever the search string, there are no results: e.g. for "note"
