Cannot upgrade ZFS (apt-conf or package problem?)

Postby mabra » 2018-05-09 16:26

I upgraded my box currently and now,
I am having debian 9.4 (9.4.0-3-amd64) with ZFS on root, which works fine.
I installed ZFS from the stretch-backports initially and now, looked for the policies:
0.7.6-1~bpo9+1 650
650 stretch-backports/contrib amd64 Packages

Looks ok.
The I tried to upgrade:
>apt-get -t stretch-backports upgrade
but getting:
The following packages have been kept back:
e2fslibs e2fsprogs exim4-base exim4-daemon-light libcomerr2 libss2 linux-headers-amd64 linux-image-amd64 spl-dkms systemd-sysv
tor tor-geoipdb zfs-dkms zfs-initramfs zfs-zed zfsutils-linux
The following packages will be upgraded:
debootstrap distro-info-data exim4-config iproute2 iptables libfastjson4 libip4tc0 libip6tc0 libiptc0 libldap-2.4-2

This output was cutted slightly - but at the end of the list, there is NO ZFS - like shown above, it is "kept back".
I have no clue, what happended and how I can upgrade ZFS, which is the most importent part
of my OS ...
Any help is really very welcome!

Upgrading everything at once willy nilly from backports is not encouraged.

What happens if you try to upgrade just the zfs packages?
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, 4.19.13 kernel, wine-staging 4.0~rc4, Stellarium 0.18.3, VLC 3.0.5, Midori 7.0
