I can vouch for linux mint 17 ubuntu version running superb on my laptop with a very similar amd apu processor. I haven't tried the debian version? However you are wise to ask, these apus are very paricular. They don't particularly like many linux distros. In my experience stick with the open source nouveau driver, I had all sorts of problems with the proprietary driver(including overheating).cheers.

I recently upgraded my MythTV box, which runs MythBuntu 14.04, to use an MSI A88X-G43 motherboard with an AMD A10-6700 APU. The system reboots as soon as it's started when I use a 3.13.0 or later kernel. (I've filed a bug report about this.) The motherboard has some other problems, so I'm not happy with it, but these are clearly not related to the CPU/APU.
