Debian :: Aptitude Packages Not Listed?

Mar 6, 2016

How to find packages with aptitude. If I use the shell to type "aptitude search nethack" then I get a list of several nethack versions from which to choose. If I use the aptitude GUI and type Ctrl-T and then arrow over to the search option and type in "nethack" and hit Enter, the only option that I see is nethack-spoilers. Why do I not see all of the other nethack options?

Debian :: Force Aptitude To Ignore Broken Packages

Jul 26, 2010

I am just too tired and am missing something in the man pages for aptitude and not getting my search terms right but I can't seem to find a way to make aptitude ignore a couple of supposed broken packages (they work just fine by the way). The only way I can find to remidy the situation is to remove those couple of packages or upgrade several things to their Squeeze counter parts. I really don't want to try and do the upgrade as at home I am stuck on a 56k connection. Removing the broken packages I guess won't be too bad if I can find the debs again after I install a couple of things I want to add to my system. I would however just like to make aptitude ignore the state of my system and try to install what I want anyway.

Debian :: Aptitude Safe Upgrade Removed All KDE 4.3 Packages

Apr 13, 2010

KDE 4.3 squeeze-SID
I've got a strange problem with my last "aptitude safe-upgrade". It had removed all my kde 4.3 and packages I have installed, I don't know why!

$ dpkg -l | grep ^rc |awk '{print $2}' | xargs echo .....

I reinstalled kde-full (kde 4) but now with an aptitude safe-upgrade or dist-upgrade. It wants to remove my debian-multimedia keyrings and my wine-unstable and others each time.

# aptitude -s safe-upgrade

Debian :: Aptitude Safe Upgrade - Untrusted Packages

Jul 4, 2010

I am new to Debian (just used Gentoo until now), I run a little server for our company and clients. Unfortunately our hosting company switched us from a Gentoo system to a Debian Lenny box with Confixx and stopped maintaining it. So I will need to do the house keeping, which worries me a bit. Today I started and ran: aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade and got a huge list with packages to upgrade. Unfortunately, I am not confident, if I will break something upgrading (Confixx, apache) as I get the following warning message:

WARNING: untrusted versions of the following packages will be installed!
Untrusted packages could compromise your system's security.
You should only proceed with the installation if you are certain that this is what you want to do.
mysql-client mysql-server-5.1 mysql-client-5.1 mysql-common mysql-server-core-5.1 mysql-server libmysqlclient16
Do you want to ignore this warning and proceed anyway?
Is it safe to ignore it and upgrade the needed packages?

Debian Configuration :: Aptitude Wants To Reinstall Uninstalled Packages

Nov 6, 2015

I use Jessie, with the Aptitude curses interface for package management. It seems that every time I successfully uninstall/purge a package (along with its dependencies), then the next time I try to install/uninstall anything else it wants to reinstall that package (and its dependencies). It takes several (I haven't counted) "don't install" instructions from me before it will forget about it.

Debian Configuration :: Clearing Aptitude State - Removal Of Packages

Mar 18, 2010

I had been doing some removal of packages, and things went well, or so I thought. Now whenever I try and install any package using aptitude, some old state is lingering around and wants me to install packages that I do not want, and remove some packages that I am not sure about removing (did I actually select those to be removed??) I removed libvirt etc, and now it wants to come back? Also, like I mentioned, why remove those other four packages?

The following NEW packages will be installed:
aqemu gtkrsync libvirt-doc libvirt0 python-libvirt qemu qemu-kvm qemu-system qemu-user qemu-utils virt-top virt-viewer virtinst
The following packages will be removed:
dnsmasq-base{u} netcat-openbsd{u} python-gtk-vnc{u} python-vte{u}
0 packages upgraded, 13 newly installed, 4 to remove and 176 not upgraded.
Need to get 2,210kB/24.3MB of archives. After unpacking 72.7MB will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?] ^C

Running squeeze, and enjoying it so far, apart from a broken out of the box synergy (compiled my own synergy-plus to fix that issue) and a buggy samba client.

Debian Installation :: Packages (Security Sensitive) In Aptitude Safe Upgrade?

Feb 17, 2011

Today I ran
aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade
Like I regularly do, and I see these two packages need to be upgraded:
login passwd

Since these packages seem kinda security-sensitive I would like to know exactly why I would need to upgrade them. I checked Debian's security list but couldn't find anything relevant, and the links to the changelog for both packages are broken:
The requested URL /changelogs/pool/main/s/shadow/shadow_4.1.4.2+svn3283-2+squeeze1/changelog was not found on this server.
Where can I see what is changed in these packages so I can safely upgrade?

Ubuntu :: Use Apt-get Or Aptitude To Tell Me What Updated Packages Are Available

May 25, 2011

How do I use apt-get or aptitude to tell me what updated packages are available for my system? I'm moving over from Gentoo where I had a cron job that would run a command whose output was a list of available updates. I had this and other system related info emailed to me. I'd like to duplicate that under Ubuntu, but I can't find a way get the available updates.

Ubuntu Servers :: Aptitude Wanting To Remove Packages Added With Apt-get?

Jan 6, 2011

Seems like always if I add a package with apt-get, next time I use aptitude to update packages on a server, the packages I added with apt-get are automatically marked for removal.

I must, in aptitude, "forget new packages" and "cancel pending actions" then update the package list, remark packages needing updating, THEN aptitude has forgotten it wanted to remove packages.

Why can aptitude and apt-get NOT get along!?

Currently I have 10.04 on all servers, thus where it still is a problem.

Debian :: Cannot Install Anything Using Aptitude Or Apt-Get?

I'm fairly new to debian, but not to Linux overall. And it seems that I can not install anything using the "apt-get" or "aptitude" commands. Here is what it says when I try to install synaptic:

apt-get install synaptic
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package synaptic is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source.

Debian :: Different Functionality In Aptitude And Apt-get?

Aug 19, 2011

From what I understand aptitude and apt-get are both valid package management tools and it should not matter which one you use (of course the user interface is different, but the basic functionality is the same). I found something which makes me believe there are differences: I ran aptitude install gnome-themes-more and it did nothing because the package was already installed. Then I ran apt-get install gnome-themes-more just to see the difference, and it also did not install anything, but it marked the package as manually installed.

The I ran again apt-get install gnome-themes-more and this time the package was not marked as manually install (obviously because it's already marked). This makes me believe that aptitude did not mark my package as manually installed (I would have pasted the command output as well, but I don't have it anymore). So, is the core functionality of those tools the same or not?

I used until now apt-get and wonder if I should have used aptitude. I have found some wikis which recommend the usage of aptitude but I could not find out if this reccomendation is based only on the UI improvements or are there also improvements in the core functionality. I'd like some hints from more seasoned debianers about which one to use, or whether it matters. I'm maily using command line, so user interface is not an issue,

Debian :: Why Aptitude Can't Resolve Conflicts That Apt-get Can

Sep 23, 2015

I'm using Debian Testing (I know it doesn't happen in Stable)

Words isn't required here. I'll show examples:

# aptitude dist-upgrade
Code: Select allThe following NEW packages will be installed:
  appstream{a} coinor-libcoinutils3v5{ab} coinor-libosi1v5{ab} cpp-5{a}
  g++-5{a} gcc-5{a} gcj-5-jre{a} gcj-5-jre-headless{a} gcj-5-jre-lib{a}

  kded5{a} kinit{a} kio{a} libapt-inst1.7{a} libapt-pkg4.16{a} libasan2{a}

[Code] ....

Why apt-get can while aptitude can't?

I've searched on web, and all I can tell is that aptitude is "safer" than apt-get because it taking account the packages on hold.

But I don't have any package on hold! (I've tested dpkg --get-selections | grep hold)

Debian :: Aptitude Not Playing Correctly ?

Apr 3, 2011

Just today saw that for some reason aptitude seems broken. Dunno the reason. I don't know if its do with aptitude or some other update which introduced the issue. The issue is simple.

Before I could do something like $sudo aptitude purge linux-image [TAB]

Putting down the tab it would autocomplete or/and give other options if there were multiple options (it would do some kinda grep)

Now after the update of aptitude few days ago and other things I get something like this : sudo aptitude purge linux-image [TAB]grep-status: /var/lib/dpkg/status:14651: expected a colon

Debian Installation :: Aptitude Won't Unhold

Jan 20, 2015

Running testing

There were some grave bugs being showed by listbugs for apt dpkg etc

So ran aptitude hold for these buggy packages and upgraded others

Now unable to 'unhold' dpkg. ie

synaptic shows it as 1.17.13 both installed and latest and no upgradation possible

[URL] .... shows it as 1.17.23

Code: Select all# aptitude dist-upgrade

The following NEW packages will be installed:
dpkg:i386{ab} libbz2-1.0:i386{a} libjpeg62-turbo:i386{a} libsystemd0:i386{a}

some other stuff

Code: Select allThe following packages have unmet dependencies:
 dpkg : Conflicts: dpkg:i386 but 1.17.23 is to be installed.
 dpkg:i386 : Conflicts: dpkg but 1.17.13 is installed.

So I can only conclude that aptitude sees the need to upgrade from .13 to .23 but for some reason it cant 'get out' of the installed dpkg:amd64
