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.

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.

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?

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.

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 - 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.

Ubuntu :: Remove Kubuntu-Desktop Items Added To 10.04?

Jul 10, 2010

I added Kubuntu-Desktop components to my Ubuntu 10.04 system using Synaptic Pkg Mgr, with the mistaken expectation that I would then be able to toggle between Ubuntu and Kubuntu Desktops. Of course, when adding Kubuntu-Desktop components, the dependencies feature brought in around 8 or 10 items.

I tried to undo all of this, but I fear I may have removed one or two Kubuntu named packages which may be part of the original Ubuntu installation.

Also there remains a gaggle of applications, such as Dolphin, KNetwork Mgr, Konqueror, just to name a few.

The two-fold question is, (1) How can I get back as closely as possible, to my original, pure Ubuntu installation, short of a complete re-install; and (2) Is there a document out there which lists all of the packages that come standard with the Ubuntu installation.

Ubuntu :: Apt-get (use Aptitude Purge To Remove All Associated Files Of A Package)?

May 2, 2010

Did a fresh install of 10.04 Desktop 86_64 this weekend. One of the first issues I noticed right away was that apt was not function properly. Say for example you install the packages tor and vidalia (assume I'm running everything from root). #apt-get install tor vidalia This command will check and install necessary dependencies, for example 'privoxy'. Now if you decide that you don't want to use privoxy and instead use polipo, you would probably feel inclined to remove privoxy. Well I found that apt-get autoremove, apt-get remove, apt-get purge WILL NOT remove all the files/directories associated with the package. You'll find that after running each of these commands, there will still be directories, scripts, etc. in /etc/init, /etc, and /etc/rc*.d. The only solution I've found to completely removing a package is aptitude purge [package].

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 Servers :: No Boot Up With Added Lines To Fstab

May 11, 2010

I recently formatted my HDD and installed Ubuntu Server 10.04 x64. This is actually the 4th install in the past week because I was testing some things. But I had this problem on at least the previous install which made me want to start fresh again. The problem I'm having is Ubuntu will not boot if I add any of my drives to fstab. If I leave it with the standard proc, /, and swap lines it works fine. As soon as I add a line for one of my RAID arrays or an NTFS formatted partition the system hangs on bootup. It doesn't matter if I have the extra drives operating or not.

The last thing I see before it hangs is:
Code:
/dev/sda1: clean, 69351/4358144 files, 583945/17401600 blocks
Here is what the fstab currently looks like:

Code:
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
UUID=c62ac627-46a6-4fd5-87e8-4ae0d9185d53 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
UUID=c1cee1e4-f8ac-4555-a88b-f237afdedd27 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/md0 /mnt/raid5 ext4 defaults 0 0

The other two lines which also made it hang included one which was almost exactly the same as the /dev/md0 line except it was md1 with a different mount point and another which used a UUID and was ntfs-3g. I know they work because all 3 of them were mounted by "mount -a" after putting them into fstab and they're pretty much the same as what I was using with 9.04 server.
