Subject: bug#65: base-files: /etc/debian_version exists after migrating from debian From: Gregory Nowak <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: Devuan Bug Tracking System <email@example.com> Date: Sun, 23 Apr 2017 12:44:46 -0700 Package: base-files Version: 8+devuan7 Severity: minor Dear Maintainer, after upgrading from debian wheezy to devuan jessie, /etc/debian_version still exists with the contents "7.11". This file is apparently still referenced somewhere when doing apt-get dist-upgrade. This issue is discussed at: <https://lists.dyne.org/lurker/thread/20170418.054720.34c2db04.en.html> *** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate *** * What led up to the situation? Migrating from debian wheezy to devuan jessie. * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)? Leaving the file in place seems to cause no harm. Removing it causes the message "cat /etc/debian_version: no such file or directory" to appear when running apt-get dist-upgrade. Fresh installs of devuan don't have a /etc/debian_version, and don't exhibit this problem. * What was the outcome of this action? See above. * What outcome did you expect instead? No /etc/debian_version should exist after migrating to devuan, and the lack of this file shouldn't produce error messages when running apt-get dist-upgrade. *** End of the template - remove these template lines *** -- System Information: Architecture: i686 Kernel: Linux 3.16.0-4-686-pae (SMP w/1 CPU core) Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash Init: sysvinit (via /sbin/init) Versions of packages base-files depends on: ii mawk [awk] 1.3.3-17 base-files recommends no packages. base-files suggests no packages. -- Configuration Files: /etc/debian_version f627c6a8a6325d8f495a49568e4b2a79 [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/etc/debian_version f627c6a8a6325d8f495a49568e4b2a79' /etc/dpkg/origins/debian 731423fa8ba067262f8ef37882d1e742 [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/etc/dpkg/origins/debian 731423fa8ba067262f8ef37882d1e742' /etc/issue changed [not included] -- no debconf information
