Ubuntu :: List Of Proposed Updates In Terminal Apt-Get?

Aug 22, 2010

I am more a 'terminal-apt-get-fan' then an 'update-manager-fan'. The only thing I don't know how to do, is get a list of proposed updates after sudo apt-get-update, like the update manager shows me after I pressed the "check" button. Now I bet there is a way, I just can't find it.

Debian :: Upgrading From Jessie To Testing By Changing Sources List

May 20, 2015

I have a fresh install of jessie and I'm thinking about starting using testing instead. I tried to use the testing installer but it was so buggy I finally gave up and I now have some questions.

My sources.list currently looks like this:

Code: Select all# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.0.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20150425-12:50]/ jessie main

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.0.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20150425-12:50]/ jessie main

deb jessie main
deb-src jessie main

deb jessie/updates main
deb-src jessie/updates main

# jessie-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb jessie-updates main
deb-src jessie-updates main

- I get that I should change jessie but to what, testing or stretch?

- Is it considered reasonably "safe" to upgrade a system by changing sources.list and then running apt-get update && apt-get upgrade?

By safe I mean something along the lines of that given that I have a fresh install of jessie is there a great chance that the upgrade will break my system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Undo Tracking Proposed Updates?

Jan 4, 2010

In the "software sources" windows under the "Updates" tab I have checked "Pre-released updates" and installed all the updates. I no longer want to track the proposed updates and have unchecked that item. Now am back to just security and recommended checked. How do i get it to downgrade the packages that it has modified when I had "Pre-released" checked? I want to get back on the stable "Recommended Updates". It seems to have changed what it looks at for updates but did not downgrade the packages.

Debian :: Sources.list - To Determine US Or UK?

Mar 7, 2011

I have created a custom debian netinst USB stick. It has the default UK repositories in the sources list, but people in the US also need to use the stick from time-to-time.

Would it be a bad idea to mix US and UK repositories in the sources.list? Would Debian be clever enough to pick up the best repo depending on where the user is using the OS from? Or would I need to be a bit clever and create some sort of script to deal with this. (I am avoiding non-free/experimental software).

Ubuntu Installation :: Change The Sources That Aren't In Sources.list?

Apr 21, 2010

I am running Jolicloud on my netbook (which I believe is an Ubuntu derivative) and I am tried to enter the sources in so I can install apps from the website through APT but

1) When I entered the sources into sources.list and then the key into Terminal and then went to the site and tried to install an app it didn't work.

2) I deleted the line of code in the sources.list file and when I opened terminal and entered "sudo apt-get update" it showed the list of sources, but on the list were sources.

My question is how do I delete sources that aren't in /etc/apt/sources.list ?

Debian :: Unable To Edit The Sources.list?

Sep 7, 2011

I started using Ubuntu about 2 months ago, and having been studying every day since. About 2 days ago, I downloaded a copy of i386 Squeeze, and installed it onto an old extra machine (Dell 2350 tower, 768 MB RAM, 30 GB HD, Ethernet broadband) as a learning project.

During the install, I chose to not specify an online mirror. (I was trying to keep things as simple as possible, and save time while I was at it.) I didn't realize that by not specifying a mirror, the new system wouldn't have any links for finding new software. (In Ubuntu, it was automated and required no input &/or editing from me.) Reading posts at this forum, I learned that I need to edit the sources.list file. This was my first attempt at editing a Linux system script file, and I wasn't able to manage doing that. I chose to open it using gedit, and found I couldn't change its contents. I figured out then, that it was read-only.

Debian :: Why Not Change Sources.list / Do Dist-upgrade

Feb 8, 2010

My friend has an ubuntu 810 machine and he wants to remove it and install debian on that.Instead of cleaning and installing, I thought why not change the sources.list and do a dist-upgrade to debian. In case it is required, I dont mind purging packages like x or desktop etc. from ubuntu to make it thin before upgrading to debian.Has anyone tried this approach instead of a clean install?

Debian :: Installing Kernel Sources - Compile And List

Apr 5, 2010

I am not new to Debian and used to use commands like "apt-get install <package>", "apt-get update", "apt-get upgrade" and "apt-cache search <string>" regularly. But I never understood those Debian programs and the Debian package system with it's numerous programs and way to install things and work on software and configurations. Now, I just wanted to do something that I thought to be really easy. Get the source of an existing package. And despite spending over 3 hours - including reading the man-pages of commands - I cannot find a way!

Two things:
dpkg --get-selections | grep openvz
linux-image-2.6-openvz-amd64 install
linux-image-2.6.26-2-openvz-amd64 install

I already don't understand why I have two such packages installed. I would like to download the source of my kernel: apt-get source linux-image-2.6.26-2-openvz-amd64. This downloaded linux-2.6_2.6.26-21lenny4.dsc, linux-2.6_2.6.26.orig.tar.gz and linux-2.6_2.6.26-21lenny4.diff.gz

Then, I wanted to patch this - having found no explanation, I did:
cd linux
patch < ../linux-2.6_2.6.26-21lenny4.diff

That seemed to patch the kernel. But I am not sure - there are new files like this now_
Only in linux-2.6-2.6.26: xenctrl-capabilities.patch
Only in linux-2.6-2.6.26: xenctrl.patch
Only in linux-2.6-2.6.26: xenctrl-privcmd.patch

So, how can download the complete Debian kernel source? And what do I need to be able to compile it? And - HOW to just list all available sources and search in them?!? I found lots of webpages where tools like "make-kpkg" are used, which I do not understand again. Under SuSE, I could just select the package from a list, say "make oldconfig install modules modules_install" and be ready. Under Debian, I just find no way ...

Debian Configuration :: Apt Sources.list Ssh:// With Custom Port?

Sep 26, 2010

I've setup my own repository which I want to use SSH as the protocol. I managed to get everything working with an SSH key using port 22. Now, I would like to change the SSH port. I've already changed it on the SSH/repo server. Now I can't figure out how to change apt to use a custom port on the client computer.

My sources.list file line which worked over port 22: deb ssh://user@ lenny main contrib non-free I've tried: deb ssh://user@ lenny main contrib non-free and it fails and actually says "failed connecting to port 22"

Can this be done? I've searched google for hours and I getting nothing but unrelated data. I've read the man pages. The man page for apt.conf specified that you can set the port this way for HTTP, but doesn't mention anything about ssh ports.

Debian Configuration :: Configuring Sources.list File ?

May 19, 2011

About configuring my sources.list file.

The default file was:

To which I have added this: deb [url] stable all

Today I decided to include again Debian Volatile and discovered that it doesn't exist anymore and that I can get the same packages using this line: deb [url] squeeze-updates main

And the first question is: is this the same than debian-security?

Then, I decided to use [url] to make things less confused, and this was the output:

The first line is Ok. The second line, I guest it's the same than my second line. But, the third, is something different. So, the main question is: what is the difference between squeeze-proposed-updates and squeeze-updates? Are those repos completely separated from squeeze/updates (in And, what else should I add to have an always up-to-date and secure system?
