apt not updating.

If none of the more specific forums is the right place to ask

apt not updating.

Postby mloiterman » 2020-03-22 14:29

I've recently updated to 10.3.

Before and after my upgrade:
Code: Select all
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

worked perfectly.

However, sometime after 2/29/20, something has happened and now using that same command shows:
Code: Select all
root@freeswitch:~# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
Hit:1 http://files.freeswitch.org/repo/deb/debian-release buster InRelease
Hit:2 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster InRelease
Hit:3 http://deb.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates InRelease
Hit:4 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates InRelease

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Given that I have 1327 packages installed, I find it hard to believe that none of them have been updated in the last three weeks.

Here is my sources list:
Code: Select all
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main contrib non-free

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main contrib non-free


I do not have unattended-upgrades installed, so I don't know what is going on.

I can install packages without any problems.

Code: Select all
uname -a
Linux freeswitch 4.19.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.98-1 (2020-01-26) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Code: Select all
cat /etc/debian_version
10.3


Any ideas?

Stable only gets security updates, nothing else. Nothing will get upgraded to a shiny new version aside from Firefox and a few others.

Yeah, but as far as I know, I've always been on stable and I've always gotten tons of updates.

You can see recent security updates in https://www.debian.org/security/ :

[20 Mar 2020] DSA-4644-1 tor security update
[20 Mar 2020] DSA-4643-1 python-bleach security update
[19 Mar 2020] DSA-4642-1 thunderbird security update
[16 Mar 2020] DSA-4641-1 webkit2gtk security update
[15 Mar 2020] DSA-4640-1 graphicsmagick security update
[11 Mar 2020] DSA-4639-1 firefox-esr security update
[10 Mar 2020] DSA-4638-1 chromium security update
[09 Mar 2020] DSA-4637-1 network-manager-ssh security update


Since 29th february, there have been updates for popular packages such as firefox and thunderbird. Do you have any of them installed ? If yes, you can check their version status with
Code: Select all
apt-cache policy <package> <package> ...

and compare the versions with the ones in the security advisories.

Hello. To make things simple, you can subscribe to debian-security-announce mailing list
https://lists.debian.org/debian-security-announce/

Personally, I only received one update since February. It was Firefox-esr. By the way, there are only 846 packages on my system. :)
