Subject: bug#106: tasksel has lower version string in ascii than jessie From: Tom <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: Devuan Bug Tracking System <email@example.com> Date: Sat, 17 Jun 2017 14:30:29 +1000 Package: tasksel Version: 3.33+devuan0.3 Severity: important Dear Maintainer, * What led up to the situation? Installed task-xfce-desktop and some other task-* packages in jessie. * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)? Upgraded from jessie to ascii. * What was the outcome of this action? The task-xfce-desktop package was uninstalled during upgrade and not installable again after upgrade. The tasksel package was not upgraded as the version in ascii is lower than the version in jessie. * What outcome did you expect instead? The tasksel and task-* packages should have been upgraded alongside all the other packages from jessie to ascii. tasksel and other task-* packages in ascii should have their versions updated to be equal to (or greater than if any changes from) the package versions in jessie. Debian has a newer version 3.39 in stretch. -- System Information: Distributor ID: Devuan Description: Devuan GNU/Linux 2.0 (ascii) Release: 2.0 Codename: ascii Architecture: x86_64 Kernel: Linux 4.9.0-3-amd64 (SMP w/2 CPU cores) Locale: LANG=en_AU.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_AU.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash Init: sysvinit (via /sbin/init) Versions of packages tasksel depends on: ii apt 1.4.6 ii debconf [debconf-2.0] 1.5.61 ii liblocale-gettext-perl 1.07-3+b1 ii perl-base 5.24.1-3 ii tasksel-data 3.33+devuan0.3 tasksel recommends no packages. tasksel suggests no packages. -- debconf information: tasksel/desktop: tasksel/title: tasksel/first: desktop, print-server, standard tasksel/tasks:
