Upgrade error?

I upgrade from Mint 20 to 20.1. Everything is running.

However, if I do the command "apt-get ugrade" I receive a message "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded".

I tried to locate which is the culprit package but no luck using the command "apt list --upgradeable". I also tried to locate its name on the log of apt (/var/log/apt/history.log) and again no luck.

How can I locate the package name?

Thanks in advance,

Helio

You could try using apt-get -sv upgrade (simulated and verbose) but it could just be that you'd need to use sudo apt-get dist-upgrade (NOTE: this will probably also take you to the next point-release, if one is available) to update that specific package.

You should always run

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
before you try running

Code: Select all

sudo apt upgrade
though if you have only just moved from 20 to 20.1 there may still be nothing to upgrade.

Did you use the first command I gave you to look through its output to determine which package is not being upgraded?
