    • Platform:

    • Complexity:
      S

      Description

      With apt you can set a package on hold:

      • aptitude hold cfengine3

      Now apt-get -s upgrade will list

      The following packages have been kept back:
        cfengine3
      The following packages will be upgraded:
        accounting-nrc singularity-container
      2 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
      Inst accounting-nrc [1.7+nmu2] (1.7+nmu4 sara:stretch [amd64])
      Inst singularity-container [2.5.0] (2.5.2 sara:stretch [amd64])
      Conf accounting-nrc (1.7+nmu4 sara:stretch [amd64])
      Conf singularity-container (2.5.2 sara:stretch [amd64])
      

      While debian 8 and higher apt list --upgradable

      accounting-nrc/stretch 1.7+nmu4 amd64 [upgradable from: 1.7+nmu2]
      cfengine3/stretch 3.12.0-6 amd64 [upgradable from: 3.10.3-1]
      singularity-container/stretch 2.5.2 amd64 [upgradable from: 2.5.0]
      

      To be compatible we can add apt-get -s ---ignore-hold upgrade

      The following held packages will be changed:
        cfengine3
      The following packages will be upgraded:
        accounting-nrc cfengine3 singularity-container
      3 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
      Inst accounting-nrc [1.7+nmu2] (1.7+nmu4 sara:stretch [amd64])
      Inst cfengine3 [3.10.3-1] (3.12.0-6 sara:stretch [amd64])
      Inst singularity-container [2.5.0] (2.5.2 sara:stretch [amd64])
      Conf accounting-nrc (1.7+nmu4 sara:stretch [amd64])
      Conf cfengine3 (3.12.0-6 sara:stretch [amd64])
      Conf singularity-container (2.5.2 sara:stretch [amd64])
      

      Then all packages upgrades will be shown and we can use the keyword latest again for package version if we are using a test node.
