Re: APT candidate does not match package on Debian repo




Hi Nik

With rmadison we can see that 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

You specified that this information is stored in Packages.xz. However I could find only 4.9.0-7 Kernel:

$ xzgrep linux-image  debian/dists/stable/main/binary-amd64/Packages.xz | grep Filename
Filename: pool/main/l/linux/linux-image-4.9.0-7-amd64_4.9.110-1_amd64.deb
Filename: pool/main/l/linux/linux-image-4.9.0-7-amd64-dbg_4.9.110-1_amd64.deb
Filename: pool/main/l/linux/linux-image-4.9.0-7-rt-amd64_4.9.110-1_amd64.deb
Filename: pool/main/l/linux/linux-image-4.9.0-7-rt-amd64-dbg_4.9.110-1_amd64.deb
Filename: pool/main/l/linux-latest/linux-image-amd64_4.9+80+deb9u5_amd64.deb
Filename: pool/main/l/linux-latest/linux-image-amd64-dbg_4.9+80+deb9u5_amd64.deb
Filename: pool/main/l/linux-latest/linux-image-rt-amd64_4.9+80+deb9u5_amd64.deb
Filename: pool/main/l/linux-latest/linux-image-rt-amd64-dbg_4.9+80+deb9u5_amd64.deb

Did we miss something?

Thanks!
Martin
