<SOLVED> Is system up to date ?

Previous topic - Next topic


Using Sparky 4.9.
Menu->System tools->Update system shows: "Your system is up to date"
While 'sudo apt update ' shows "114 packages can be upgraded."
Is my system up to date, or not ?

Is it safe to do:
apt upgrade
apt dist-upgrade ?

TIA for your help.

Je suis sous Sparky 4.9.
Menu->Outils système->Mise à jour du système indique "Votre système est à jour".
Alors que sudo apt update indique "114 packages can be upgraded."
Mon système est-il à jour, ou non ?

Est-ce sans danger de faire:
apt upgrade
apt dist-upgrade ?

Md'av pour votre aide.


Might I suggest

sudo apt -s  upgrade      ##followed by

sudo apt -s full-upgrade   ##   the "-s" switch will show a simulation of what would happen (as best as it can simulate). 

and compare.  Please post whatever seems most appropriate then in reply - please mark up as code. 

Please write up any modifications you have made to your Stable - non-rolling system especially if you have pinned packages and/or use DebianpBackports.  Please also write up any repos that you have added that are not from Sparky.  Or just post the output of inxi -r     In a spirit of openess - my inxi -r follows from a Debian stable machine - I am not on my virtual Sparky's or intel atom Sparky's
inxi -r

Using a Ubuntu ppa is a true recipe for disaster all too often.  See my sig.    The one ppa you see for me is fairly well vetted for Debian.  It is my cloud backup provider. 
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.


I have experienced something similar recently. 

As a newcomer to the rolling release model of distros in general, and Sparky specifically, I've been using Sparky in a VM for several months before I swap out all the OSes on my 8-10 network machines.  I've been diligently updating/upgrading Sparky whenever the Aptus(?) notification tells me something is available.  Starting sometime in early January, I stopped receiving notifications.  However, this was coincidental with notifications for "feature freezes" of Testing, and as a 9-year veteran of LTS distros I just chalked it up to business as usual for a rolling release model.  But I started seeing forum messages from pavroo(?) that indicated Testing repos were in motion again, so I started checking manually.  But Aptus kept telling me everything was up-to-date.  Except I KNEW that LXQt 0.14.1 was now available, and I've been waiting (not so) patiently for some newly added features in that release.  So even though Aptus indicated everything was fine, I tried from the CLI.

sudo apt update

indicated there were over 1060 packages to be updated!  continuing with the CLI, I typed:

sudo apt upgrade

and learned that there were "lock" files in place, even though no other applications were using apt.  I double-checked with


and verified nothing was running.  and for good measure, killed any running processes of apt.  i had previously encountered something similar in Lubuntu and solved with this link:


Inasmuch as Lubuntu is derived from Debian, I followed instructions, removed the lock files, reconfigured dpkg, re-ran

sudo apt upgrade

and everything was fine.  I watched Sparky upgrade 1060 files, totaling over 990MB, after slightly more than 2 months of inactivity, sitting on pins & needles the entire process!  But everything proceeded without issue, Sparky rebooted, and all was good again.  Despite the snafu, I'm pretty astonished that such a large upgrade happened without issue.  KUDOS to the devs!

So without knowing all the details of the original poster's scenario, I strongly suspect something similar.  I honestly don't know what caused the "locked file" message.  Could've even been something I did that I shouldn't have.  But I see the Aptus upgrade tool as partly culpable here.  I normally perform manual upgrades from the CLI, but coming to a new distro with a new tool, I followed the recommended way to update/upgrade.  But Aptus was failing spectacularly, telling me everything was up-to-date when, in fact, it wasn't.  The problem, as I see it, is that Aptus only throws 2 messages:  1 - upgrades are available or 2 - system is up-to-date

May I suggest that Aptus be modified to throw a third message, such as "something went wrong, try from the CLI".  If Aptus did this, I would've caught it immediately.  Just a suggestion, FWIW...


Thank you for you reply, paxmark1

inxi is a nice program to install.  Your call.  I can see that you are a conservative in your Debian habits. 

Since you are 4.9 - stable - a lot of those programs are security upgrades.  I would recommend the usage of "sudo apt update"  followed by "sudo apt-upgrade" 

I have no idea what caused it, I update and upgrade from the command line myself. 

And just on a very off chance that your Debian mirror is down   No - you are missing Sparky items also.  but useful when downloads seem to stop for Debian

There might be a another several day pause for some in Sparky t after March 12 (hard freeze starts), but not for you, you are in stable if you are 4.9
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.


Hello paxmark1

- I have installed inxi. Nice, impressive list of options !

- I did "sudo apt update"  followed by "sudo apt-upgrade"
and several update/upgrade since then.
All is OK now.

Thank you.
