Jessie-backports and LibreOffice not working

Postby rousou » 2017-05-15 17:23

Hi all!
I'm using debian Jessie stable 64bit and i'm having some trouble with the default installed LibreOffice 4.3 so i decided to upgrade it to the versione 5.2 that is said to be supported trough the backports.
But... it seems the upgrade doesn't exist.

Code: Select all
root@i7:/home/rousou# apt-get install -t jessie-backports libreoffice
Lettura elenco dei pacchetti... Fatto
Generazione albero delle dipendenze       
Lettura informazioni sullo stato... Fatto
libreoffice è già alla versione più recente.
0 aggiornati, 0 installati, 0 da rimuovere e 0 non aggiornati.


Any idea?

Thanks!
rousou

Found the problem, sorry. The backports repo have been wiped out from the sources.list.

Is it possible that some update refreshes the source.list file? Same happened for contrib and non-free :?:

Anything is possible, but if a package asks to change a pre-existing system configuration file like that one, the update system halts and informs you of that, and gives you the choice to accept the change, view the changes, or to stick with what you have. We've fiddled with the software source files on MX Linux several times, and so are familiar with what'll happen--no one snuck any changes past you.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.0.4, Pale Moon 27.3.0, Liquorix kernel 4.11-4, mpv 0.25.0, Kodi 17.1, Ksnip 1.3.1, Mesa 13.0.6
