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 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 :: 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?

Fedora Installation :: 13 Upgrade: Remove Fc12 Packages?

Jun 7, 2010

I had a fairly smooth upgrade process using PreUpgrade on my main workstation, but I still have a huge bunch of fc12, some of which have fc13 analogs installed, some of which don't (a total of 317 packages). Also, I still have the Constantine gdm theme, probably as a symptom of these lingering packages. Can I just yum erase these? Do I need to check which have analogs in fc13? I don't know which step of the upgrade I forgot, but it seems I'm stuck somewhere in between, although

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Wants To Remove Lots Of Packages (possibly Depending On Plymouth)?

Oct 5, 2010

last week I encountered the following problem: The update manager suggests a distribution upgrade (strange enough since I already have 10.4 and 10.10 is not released yet). The even worse part is that 24 packages shall be removed from my system, including acpi, cryptsetup, network-manager, nvidia-current, plymouth-x11, samba and wine. About 5 weeks ago I experimented (without success) with disabling plymouth because I wanted textmode during booting. I found some warnings that one should not completly remove plymouth because lots of dependencies including cryptsetup (which is vital to my system). So I did not remove plymouth (a look in Synaptic confirms this), but I may have changed some settings concerning plymouth.I am not sure what this upgrade is about.

Fedora Installation :: Safely Remove Unsupported Packages After FC13 Upgrade?

Jun 2, 2010

I managed to successfully upgrade FC11 to FC13. While doing the post upgrade steps, I made a HUGE mistake. After identifying the unsupported packages, I used "yum remove package1 package2" command to remove the obsoleted ones without realizing the yum was also removing many FC13 packages! Here are the cmd sequence used:

# package-cleanup --orphans
...
# yum remove compat-db45-4.5.20-5.fc10.i386 flash-plugin-10.0.32.18-release.i386 gnome-spell-1.0.8-5.fc9.i386 ifd-egate-0.05-21.i586

[code]....

I simply typed Yes and left unattended for a few minutes after yum prompted there were # of packages to be removed as I blindly believed it would do the job. After returning to the computer, I found many installed icons were disappearing, the wireless suddenly turned off etc. I killed the yum process right away but it was too late.

-Is there anything I could do to undo the yum remove process?

-How to safely remove supported packages?

Ubuntu Installation :: Aptitude Wants To Remove A Package?

Jan 19, 2010

i installed a package with dpkg --install and told it to ignore an unmet dependency because the package it depended on could not be installed with apt-get (it was a perl module) and i have manually installed the perl module, it works... however every time i do "apt-get upgrade" or anything like that it wants to remove the package i forced to install because it still thinks there are unmet dependencies, is there a way to either tell it to ignore that the package has unmet dependencies (i mean ignore that always, not something i will have to add every time i use aptitude) or is there a way to convince it that the package it thinks is missing (the unmet dependency) is actually met.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade My System Through Aptitude - Apt-get *

I'm currently experiencing a problem when trying to upgrade my system through aptitude (apt-get *). I can install programs, but whenever it tries do anything with the kernel I get this error:

E: linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2

This started about a month ago when I was trying to install some upgrade (with apt) which stalled and I unknowingly shut down the comp while it was running.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Fails To Boot After Aptitude Full-upgrade

May 12, 2010

I run "aptitude update;aptitude full-upgrade" today, then I updated /etc/default/grub changing only the default boot line number, and I dully run update-grub, with no error messages. Now Kubuntu will not boot. The new kernel 2.6.32-22 is in the boot menu. When I turn the computer on, a blinking cursor appears on top line, column 8, and after a few seconds this cursor disappears and the screen is blank - my monitor indicates no video signal.

The failsafe 2.6.32-22 grub line does not boot either. I tried pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1, Ctrl-Alt-F2 etc. up to Ctrl-Alt-F10 to get to a text mode login prompt, but the screen remains blank and my monitor indicates no video signal. The workaround is to boot to kernel 2.6.32-21. The machine is Athlon XP, 2GB RAM, ATI Radeon 9600

Fedora Installation :: F12 -> F14 Post Upgrade - Unable To Get To A GDM Login

My system is Dell 4300S with 1.4 GHz Pentium processor, recently upgraded to 1 GB RAM,120 GB WDC1200JB hard drive Sony DRU-720A DVD/RW drive, ATT plugandshare wireless adapter with Atheros AR5001X chip, ATI Rage 128 Pro Ultra TF video card, and Actiontec V90, and 56KFlex modem (Agere System Venus). I attempted to use preupgrade to upgrade from Fedora 12 to 14 using wireless connection. It seems, that upgrade finished successfully, except I am not unable to get to a GDM login. I updated SElinux to selinux-policy-3.9.7-10 and selinux-policy-targeted-3.9.7-10, and touch /.autorelabel overnight, I was able to login using GDM once. And that is all. After I boot, after Ctrl+Alt+F4, I can login to terminal.

Fedora Installation :: Post Upgrade Dependency - Yum Broken?

Jan 28, 2011

I recently upgraded to Fedora 14 from F13 using Yum, it worked to my amazement except now yum appears to be broken because of a massive amount of dependency issues. It appears the old F13 packages are still around and yum is unable to get ride of them because their dependency with F14 packages of the same name. I tried yum distro-sync, and I tried yum resolvedep $(package-cleanup --orphans) --skip-broken but to no avail. Package--cleanup--orphans identifies all of the left over F13 packages.

I also can't install or upgrade anything using Yum, does give me a reason except the massive amount of dependency issues with the left over F13 packages. When I use the graphical software update it tells me among other things that Yum and RPM have updates but of course it won't update. I did follow the instructions and used yum update yum before I upgraded to F14, maybe it didn't take? Anyway to resolve this issue other than a clean install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager No Longer Works Post Upgrade To Lucid

May 28, 2010

When I run update manager, it gives me an error message saying:

Code:

This can be caused by:
* A previous update which didn't complete
* Problems with some of the installed software
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
* Normal changes of a pre-release version of Ubuntu
if I click partial upgrade, it looks like it did during the upgrade, then says:

Code:

There are no upgrades available for your system. The upgrade will now be canceled.
if I click close from the first "not all updates can be installed" dialog, it says:

Code:

It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first.
running the suggested line gives the following output:

Code:

In Synaptic, fixing broken packages does nothing. Mark All Updates > Apply seems to work, but I'd still like to figure out why Update Manager does not?

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 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.
