Following packages have been kept back error?

Postby crazypenguin2011 » Fri Dec 23, 2011 6:14 pm

Hi everybody! I have LMDE Gnome with tha latest update pack. It has been a long time that the tray icon show that my system is up to date.. but the last time i installed updates was some 2-3 weaks ago. I tried to update via terminal so i ran "apt-get update" and that is what i get:

$ sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
foomatic-db-engine
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

my sources.list:
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
# deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
# deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib no$
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

PLEASE, ANY ONE? HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM?

Its not a problem. The package is being held back for a reason and it will get sorted out sooner or later.

i have a feeling that it is similar to really-bad plugins issue that kept my system from receiving updates.... can it be something similar?

No its not the same. This is not a error message. Its just telling you that one package is being held back. For me its two packages being held back.
foomatic-db-engine and mint-flashplugin. If your system is working ok i would not worry. Nothing is being updated in LMDE right now because Clem is waiting for Gnome 3.2 to hit testing.
