Wheezy updates?

Postby trojanfoe » 2012-03-27 15:44

I have recently (6 weeks ago) installed Wheezy on my server, replacing CentOS, but I haven't seen any updates since installation despite regularly running 'apt-get update'. This is my /etc/apt/sources.list:

Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main non-free contrib

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

deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org wheezy main non-free


Is this lack of updates normal, or is there something wrong with my config?

Cheers,
Andy

Comment out the first line - it's a duplicate.

It's not enough to run "apt-get update"

Code: Select all
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

Because this is a server, the following commands are better: aptitude update & aptitude --simulate full-upgrade

update only updates the package database.
I suggest doing aptitude safe-upgrade after running aptitude update

I missed that, so it's a server running testing...?

After missing 6 weeks of updates safe-upgrade may be just holding back stuff which shouldn't be held back (removal of obsolete packages, transitions, migrations, etc, etc, etc)

:) :shock:

Ahh, that's got it... many thanks :) It's been a while since I've run a Debian system.
