Debian Installation :: Aptitude Update And Aptitude Install Aptitude?

Jul 11, 2010

I am trying to upgrade an amd64 lenny system to squeeze.I've got a 2.6.32 kernel running, done aptitude update and aptitude install aptitude.When I try "aptitude safe-upgrade", it sits forever resolving dependencies.it seems to search with the resolver counting up more and more open/conflict/ whatever.I stopped it once it got over 100,000)Is it possible to get aptitude to do a safe-upgrade, perhaps using a command line option?

Debian Configuration :: Aptitude Update From Specific File?

Feb 18, 2011

I'm developing with puppet, and I need to do an aptitude update from a specific file, here is my configuration: The file sources.list in /etc/apt/ is deleted. I've created 3 files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d each one with their repos:

00-debian_sources.list
deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free

[code]....

All the repos are updated/refreshed , and I only want to refresh/update the specific repos insie of the file 01-debian_security_updates.list. On the other hand if I put some repos in the sources.list and delete the 3 files and I create an external file for example in /tmp/temprepo and I do the command aptitude update -o dir::etc::sourcelist=/tmp/temprepo it works fine.give some workaround to update and then upgrade packages from the files specified in my config.

Debian :: New Stable Update - Command Aptitude Not Found

Feb 7, 2011

Well it didn't go smoothly for me. After downloading over 1,6Gb (!) of that new Debian version and restarting I was 'greeted' by a dreaded CLI instead of gnome. To make matters worse I got "command aptitude not found".
'apt-get' still worked.
Anyway, if you're gonna update check dependencies first. It seems I lost gnome due to gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs. So first uninstall that package if you got it.

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

May 22, 2010

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.
E: Package synaptic has no installation candidate

Debian Installation :: Apt-get Update Or Aptitude Update - Error "Cannot Initiate The Connection To Security.debian.org:80"

I have a very strange problem; when trying to apt-get update or aptitude update I get time out errors. At first it was resolving ipv6 adresses:

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

Debian :: Aptitude Doesn't Work After Installation

Feb 26, 2010

get a GUI working after installing Debian. Now, I have another set of problems so I decided to create a new thread. the first thing going wrong is that when I type aptitude update I get the following output:

[Code]....

I want to download the driver for mi wireless, get openoffice and a bunch of other things, but with this not working, I'm guessing there's not much I can do now... I have the driver of the wireless, which I downloaded before the installation of Debian, and that I now copied to my new Debian desktop, but I cannot open it... it is a tar.gz file. I'm currently connected through wired connection by the way.

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?

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}
  geoip-database-extra{a} gnuplot5-data{a} gnuplot5-qt{a} icoutils{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 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 :: 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 :: Getting No Results In Aptitude / Resolve This?

Sep 18, 2010

I've been trying to use aptitude for package management, but nothing happens in response to my commands, even as root.

Let's say for example I want to purge popcon. According to the helpfile, I should start aptitude, become root (or vice-versa), select the package in the list and press '_' (underscore), and then it will be marked with something in the left column and a different color in the list. Then later, another command will actually do the purge.

But nothing happens. It doesn't get marked or change color or anything, and 'g' just gets the message 'No packages are scheduled to be installed, removed, or upgraded.'

What am i doing incorrectly?
