I have made a dist-upgrad today and many files were removed/updated.
vlc, gimp, flamerobbin, inkscape for example are removed.
If I made another "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" the result is:
The following packages have been kept back:
gparted gstreamer1.0-plugins-good nitrogen ripperx
If I try
sudo apt-get install vlc
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
vlc: Depends: be installed but should not: vlc-nox (2.2.1-dmo10 = 1)
Recommends: VLC plugin-notify (= 1: 2.2.1-dmo10) but should not be installed
E: problems can not be corrected, you have retained broken packages.
Also with the other programs.
What can I do?
1.. what version of sparky do you have?
2. When the dist-upgrade states that large changes, especially when programs are to be removed, it is wise to answer "n" and investigate.
3. Waiting at this point is your best bet. nitrogen, gparted and vlc all are being held back by the gcc++6 transition
4.. lurk at OFTC irc at #debian-next others will be having similar problems.
5. Read the threads at https://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2015/09/msg00241.html and https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2015/09/msg00148.html
learning more about "apt-cache showpkg foo" "sudo apt-get -s upgrade" (-s is --simulate - a dry run) also "sudo apt-get -s dist-upgrade -d | less"
Thank you for your tips.
The next time I will remember your tips.
