No updates for 3 weeks?

Postby reivaX » Fri Jan 25, 2013 8:52 pm

I've installed LMDE with upgrade to UP6 on 06/01/13 on 3 PC's, after that only one package got an update - mint-common.

Not just Debian packages - even Mint specific such firefox and thunderbird already have new versions - how fast they usually get into repository?

I'm just worried is it OK - no updates for three weeks in a rolling distro, or I miss something in my apt configuration?

My /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import romeo backport
deb-src http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import romeo backport #Added by software-properties
deb http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/debian.linuxmint.com/debian/latest testing main contrib non-free

Try this:

Open a terminal and type the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

and then followed by this command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get upgrade

See if this helps.

But it's not a real rolling distro. :)

See item 3 here: viewtopic.php?f=197&t=91405

Monsta already gave the answer for the OP enquiry but i feel i have to correct this bit:
in lmde you should use

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

As I wrote originally, I did upgrade to UP6, so that's all right with upgrade/dist-upgrade, but, if you insist: :-)

Code: Select all

~$ LANG=en_US && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.


Well, it it appears that packages of the basic LMDE upgraded to UP6 did not require any updates for the whole of January? Definitely strange, as for me :-)
As strange as the Mint packages of Firefox\Thunderbird (18 and 17.0.2 originally released on January 8) - still not in repo...

I think there is a freeze until after Debian 7 is released.
