D-U to Remove network-manager-pptp Pkgs
« on: 2015/12/05, 01:15:54 »

I attempted to perform a dist-upgrade today and the result would have been the removal of network-manager-pptp and network-manager-pptp-gnome.  There were 75 packages to be upgraded, including LibreOffice, so I didn't feel like holding off.

I did a little bit of research and discovered that network-manager-pptp depended on a particular version of ppp, which was to be upgraded to version 2.4.7.  This explained why network-manager-pptp was going to be removed.  network-manager-pptp-gnome relies on network-manager-pptp, which explains why network-manager-pptp-gnome was going to be removed.

I put ppp on hold:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-mark hold ppp

I then commenced to perform the dist-upgrade, without any packages being removed, and then unheld ppp:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-mark unhold ppp

Sweet!   8)
