coinst-upgrades - finding upgrade issues between to versions of a Debian
] -o file control-file1
takes as input two Debian control files corresponding to
two versions of a Debian repository and output a report listing all packages
that coult be installed together in the initial version of the repository
(specified by control-file1
) and that can no longer be installed
together in the final version of the repository (specified by
), and explaining why they can no longer be installed
If the control files are compressed, they will be automatically uncompressed by
- --break sets
- Specify that some packages does not have to be compatible
any longer and that the corresponding issue should be omitted from the
report. The argument sets is a comma-separated list of sets of
packages. Each set is either a list of binary package names separated by a
vertical bar symbol |, or a wildcard _ standing for any package. We
explain this option through examples. You can write --break
libjpeg62-dev to state that package libjpeg62-dev does not have
to remain installable. But it is usually better to indicate that the
package should remain installable but that it is fine if it is no longer
installable with some other packages: --break
libjpeg62-dev,_. You can be even more precise and specify that two
given packages can become incompatible, but that any other incompatibility
should be reported: --break parallel,moreutils. Finally, you
can use the vertical bar symbol to factorize several sets of packages:
--break 'unoconv,python-uno|docvert-libreoffice' means that
package unoconv does not have to remain installable together with
python-uno nor docvert-libreoffice.
