Problems upgrading to wheezy

Postby mandrake88 » Mon May 06, 2013 1:42 am

I'm upgrading LMDE using wheezy repos, i did the following:

First, the sources.list

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free


rm /etc/apt/preferences

When i tried to do a dist-upgrade, apt said that mint-meta-debian-cinnamon thunderbird will be removed, so i did a simple apt-get upgrade

Everything went well (Except for some problem with the fglrx driver, i had to boot in recovery mode and remove the fglrx driver), but still having the same problem with dist-upgrade

$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

libqt4-xml:i386 libqt4-xmlpatterns libqtcore4 libqtcore4:i386 libqtgui4
libqtgui4:i386 qdbus
31 actualizados, 9 se instalarán, 2 para eliminar y 0 no actualizados.
Necesito descargar 28,2 MB de archivos.
Se liberarán 48,5 MB después de esta operación.
¿Desea continuar [S/n]? Abortado.


English translation:
"Los siguientes paquetes se ELIMINARÁN" = packages that willl be removed
"Se instalarán los siguientes paquetes NUEVOS: = new packages that will be installed
"Se actualizarán los siguientes paquetes" = packages that will be updated

What should i do? is safe run the dist-upgrade? i really don't know why apt want to remove the mint-meta-debian-cinnamon package (thunderbird is removed because it was replaced by the version without brand, i think..)

Short answer: viewtopic.php?f=199&t=128115#p697381

Long answer:

here's the butterfly:

Code: Select all

rm /etc/apt/preferences

and here's its effect:
  1. Mint's own repo doesn't have priority over Debian's one anymore
  2. apt-get wants to install a newer version of hunspell-en-us package from Debian's repo
  3. That newer version conflicts with thunderbird (that's why Mint repo has a special version of it which doesn't cause conflicts)
  4. apt-get wants to remove thunderbird
  5. apt-get wants to remove mint-meta-debian-cinnamon as it depends on thunderbird

Code: Select all

Package: *
Pin: release o=linuxmint
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: origin packages.linuxmint.com
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian
Pin-Priority: 500
that's the content of /etc/apt/preference in case if you want to revert to your previous setting. aside from your current sources.list add these repo will be usefull too.

Code: Select all

# wheezy
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian wheezy-proposed-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org wheezy main non-free
