Problem with squeeze's repositories, i can't upgrade anything.


Tengo lenny, cambié los repositorios a squeeze, pero hay paquetes que es como si no estuvieran en el repositorio, por ejemplo "gnome" no aparece, es decir, aparece como instalado, pero no lo puedo reinstalar,y si hago desde consola aptitude reinstall (o install) gnome me dice que no se pudo localizar el paquete. Lo mismo me sucede con muchos paquetes que ya tengo instalados como libgtk, si lo quisiera actualizar me dice el mismo mensaje de error, incluso si otro paquete lo tiene como dependencia (en ese caso me dice por ejemplo "depende de libgtkX, pero va a instalarse libgtkY" (cuando supuestamente en squeeze debería estar libgtkX).

El sources.list tiene sólo los repositorios oficiales apuntando a squeeze, nada más.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

I have lenny, I changed the repositories to "squeeze", but there are some packages that I can't install or upgrade. For example, if I do "aptitude install (or reinstall) gnome", it says that the package couldn't be localized. The problem also appears when I try to upgrade a package that I have installed.
If I do aptitude safe-upgrade (or full) it says that there are not any package to install, delete or upgrade (that's impossible!).
The sources.list file only contains the official repositories of squeeze, nothing else.

Did you run aptitude update first? or do you have a /etc/apt/apt.conf that is set to "stable"?

This could be your problem, testing may not be 100% complete. You should add squeeze repos to your lenny repos, ie have both in sources.list. Then the upgrade should work.

Cheers,

Squeeze IS testing, either one will work just fine.


Please paste your sources.list.

Repositories might be (temporary) out of sync, or the package might not be available because of Something happened. Some pacakages might be taken out of the repository because they are broken or don't work with the newoer components. Or will not be maintained anymore. For example (in the KDE world) KPDF won't come back, and Quanta+ is not ready yet. This is not uncommon in Testing.

If you encounter something like that, first check packages.debian.org to see if the package is still available for your version, Testing in this case. If everything seems normal, try another mirror, even if it is slower than what you have now. You can always switch back when the package is available again. And check apt-cache search -n gnome to see if the package is available and named like you think it is.

Only the testing repositories in sources.list is sufficient, no need to add Stable or Lenny as well.

That was not my point. My point was that he should *add* a repo instead of *replace* sable.
