A list of all packages that apt would remove from my system if I apt full-upgraded right now:
Code: [Select]

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  libnvidia-cfg1 libnvidia-cfg1:i386 libsensors4 libsensors4:i386 nodejs-dev
  nvidia-persistenced


Since I have my system backed up, I'm going to do it and see if it breaks my system.
every GNU/Linux distro should come with quake (shareware floppy contents) running on a sourceport. If this happens, quake will quickly become the world's #1 first person shooter once again

How you can still have some of these packages is beyond me, especially libsensors4, libsensors4:i386

The only libsensors4 left in sid should be libsensors4-dev, everything else is libsensors5

You should full-upgrade once a week at the least

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

Ah, Well i've full-upgraded and everything is fine.


I've been full-upgrading regularly. Maybe some packages are holding back my system? How would I be able to check?

apt-mark showhold didn't do anything (didn't print out anything, no errors...)
does that mean I don't have anything holding back my system?

It indicates you don't have anything marked to be held. The slicker version of

dpkg --get-selections | grep -v "install"

If these are showing

Code: [Select]
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  libnvidia-cfg1 libnvidia-cfg1:i386 libsensors4 libsensors4:i386 nodejs-dev
  nvidia-persistenced

they weren't on hold

libsensors4 was last updated (before switching to libsensors5) on

[2017-04-05] Accepted lm-sensors 1:3.4.0-4 (source) into unstable


libsensors4 switched to libsensors5 on Fri, 19 Dec 2018 (over 2 months ago)

Quote
Accepted lm-sensors 1:3.5.0-3 (source) into unstable
Date: Wed, 19 Dec 2018 16:58:53 +0100
Source: lm-sensors
Binary: lm-sensors libsensors-config libsensors5 libsensors4-dev fancontrol
Architecture: source
Version: 1:3.5.0-3
Distribution: unstable

So I really don't know how you have had libsensors4 for so long (over 2 months) if you have been full-upgrading "regularly"

Our sources are directly from debian

Welcome to the real world of unstable - deal with it, right now is the right time to learn the basics. After the debian stable release the floodgates of hell will be open again - and every not learned basic knowledge will hurt badly.
