[EN] (solved) apt is holding back audacious since some time
« on: 2017/09/07, 00:00:21 »
I wonder if it's only for me? Apt is holding back audacious and audacious-plugins-data from being upgraded since some time. I think I have the same on some other machine here.

I had the same problem and beings I don't use it I just removed it and reinstalled it and everything was back to normal. It was fine on my other computer, why we or "I" was experiencing the problem I can't answer, however a reinstall did the trick for me.

@ piper, no there is nothing on hold here.


I did reinstall by doing "apt install audacious" and some plugins were removed and some new was installed. Maybe it had something to do with some (already done) transitions before like the qt?

Now audacious is updated and the problem is gone.
Code: [Select]
apt install audacious

Let the old packages go - the experimental qt frontend was removed afaik.

I did and the case is solved.

It doesn't really matter but just for curiosity and I know that some of you say apt is "magic" but why is this done with "apt install audacious" and not in a regular "apt dist-upgrade"?
