I just did a full update/upgrade to my Debian/Wheezy/Xfce installation, and the upgrade stopped halfway through upon encountering a problem. I eventually solved the problem by first isolating which package was in error by doing first;
...to get a list of packages that still needed configuring, and manually configuring each of them through...
dpkg --configure each_package_name
...until I isolated that the bugbear package was:
I attempted using;
...to obtain missing dependencies, and got some results. After restarting the computer, a manual...
apt-get install libreoffice-help-en-us
...appeared to solve the problem, and a fresh update/dist-upgrade revealed no new packages pending installation.
However, looking through some of the bug reports, I notice that this particular package HAS caused problems to other users previously. I am actually quite content with the current version of LibreOffice, and do not really want to upgrade it anymore, but before I go pinning it, I wanted to ask the following;
...in terminal gives me the following output...
LibreOffice 3.4 340m1(Build:402)
Is this the complete detail of the version (340m1) I would use when pinning LibreOffice?
Would I have to pin each and every package of LibreOffice
to ensure that the whole package does not upgrade? Here's the dpkg --get-selections output concerning libreoffice...
Would pinning LibreOffice result in any other problems? By this I mean, would or could subsequent upgrades alter the dependencies of the pinned version of LibreOffice and render it possibly unusable?
I hope I have been clear with my query. Many thanks in advance for any advice on this...
