I saw today in my update manager there's a pack 5 to apply to my system...
But nothing to do with this update 5.

I usually use the terminal to update/upgrade my LMDE
- apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
---> nothing new

But this window show me it's currently upd 5 and the 4 in system...
Am i really updated with my terminal commands ?
$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb debian main upstream import
deb testing main contrib non-free
deb testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb testing main non-free

as you can see bellow the mirror is updated
update-pack info ... k-info.txt
update-pack text ... -pack.html
what probably is happening here (if update/dist-upgrade doesn't give you nothing new) is that mintupdate is being slow retrieving the information from the mirror.

you can always test this picking another mirror:

Code: Select all

in the terminal and choose the main server (the speed will be lower but for testing purposes it will do) then update/dist-upgrade (check if there is anything new; most probably not) now check again mintupdate: the information matches?

You're right!
Tried the main mirror, and nothing new to update/upgrade from command line, and the mintupdate GUI too...

So, if I've understood informations from the mintupdate GUI, my system is currently using UP4, and inform me UP5 is online ?
No problem if the computer is updated, it's ok for me ;)
May be a little bug in the mintupdate GUI (if I've correctly understood ;))

Thx for your answer, mister.

your sources.list are fine;
if dist-upgrade says that there is nothing new is because you are using the latest&greatest (meaning UP5 at this time)

what we see there (in the MU gui) is a glitch: MU is not fetching the information from this file ... k-info.txt to give you the exact reading but fetches this one ... -pack.html to give you the "tips" about the upgrade.
and both files are in the server (see the 2 last text files in the list)

(maybe a reboot :shock: will fix it)

Ok cool.
No problem for the glitch, this is some weeks I saw that...
The most important is to be sure the system is continuing updating fine ;)
