Re: APT candidate does not match package on Debian repo




Hi Nik

Thanks for your reply. Is it possible to extract this information from the mirror server (CentOS based)?

Where the information is stored on the repository server specifying a package as stable?

regards
Martin

4.9.144 is available on the mirrors, but not yet „active“ in the stable
distribution:

$ rmadison linux-image-4.9.0-8-amd64
linux-image-4.9.0-8-amd64 | 4.9.130-2     | stable           | amd64
linux-image-4.9.0-8-amd64 | 4.9.144-1     | proposed-updates | amd64

It will be moved to the stable distribution with the next point release.
