Hi there,
Four days ago, I have made a pristine installation of KDE amd64 siduction in my desktop, wiping out the former one. I used the latest iso from https://isobuilds.siduction.org/, dated 2020-02-16. It worked seamlessly. Right after the installation, I did my first full-upgrade, seamlessly as well.
Since my personal data are backed up at Dropbox, I installed its client package, downloaded from its official site (I guess, since I did not write down this  :( ), as the commands below seem to confirm:
Code: [Select]
# apt policy dropbox
dropbox:
  Installed: 2020.03.04
  Candidate: 2020.03.04
  Version table:
 *** 2020.03.04 500
        500 http://linux.dropbox.com/debian sid/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
# apt policy nautilus-dropbox
nautilus-dropbox:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 2020.03.04
  Version table:
     2020.03.04 500
        500 http://linux.dropbox.com/debian sid/main i386 Packages
        500 http://linux.dropbox.com/debian sid/main amd64 Packages
     2019.02.14-1 500
        500 http://deb.debian.org/debian unstable/non-free amd64 Packages

Parenthetically, by the way, the command apt search dropbox gives:
Code: [Select]
# apt search dropbox
[suppressed output]
dolphin-plugins/unstable,now 4:19.08.1-1+b1 amd64 [installed]
  plugins for Dolphin

dropbox/sid 2020.03.04 i386
  cloud synchronization engine - CLI and Nautilus extension
[more suppressed output]

which might indicate dropbox is not installed! I really do not understand how this does not contradict the output from apt policy dropbox above...

Anyway, when I rehearse doing a second full-upgrade, I get:
Code: [Select]
# apt full-upgrade -s

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:

Remv dropbox [2020.03.04]

As you can see, dropbox would be removed, as well as 2 other packages. I am not very much concerned with these last removals, since, it seems, they would be replaced by equivalent or more uptodate (?) ones.What bothers me is the dropbox package removal.

Should I let the full-upgrade go on? I cannot put dropbox on hold because this sparks a whole lot of other dependencies (libpango1.0-0, libgtksourceview2.0-0, etc) which should be put on hold as well, which does not seem wise... After the full-upgrade I might perhaps install dropbox again; does that make sense? Does anyone here has a dropbox package installed after a full-upgrade within the last 3 days?
Thanks in advance.

The best is to wait.
What you can do is to "cherry-pick" the upgradable packages if you are not patient ;)
If shit happens, try to install all needed stuff from testing (as long as it is possible)!

What you can do is to write to dropbox to change the dependencies to libpango-1.0-0 because libpango1.0-0 is going to be removed in debian sid/unstable, see bug https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=954217#10 !!!

Thank you for that. I'll let Slimjet go and wait for the Slimjet developer(s) change their code to remove reliance on libpango1.0-0.

hi,

please write a bug-report/email to "dropbox" and "Slimjet" and explain them what happens in the near future with libpango1.0-0 (it is only a transitional package)  in debian unstable and testing and please them to change the dependencies to libpango-1.0-0.

I reported it to anydesk, maybe they react and change the dependencies, who knows ;)

Dear all,
Since I pay for a Dropbox Plus plan, I am entitled to send a (sort of priority) message to their technical support, which I did a few minutes ago, describing the problem and asking them to change the dependency from the transitional libpango1.0-0 package to libpango-1.0-0, as for Debian testing and unstable. I hope they fix it soon and if I have any feedback, I will post it here.
Cheers

Also here a du wants to remove some packages:
Code: [Select]
Die folgenden Pakete werden ENTFERNT:
  anydesk flashplugin-nonfree install-usb-gui libabiword-2.8 libpango1.0-0 libpolkit-gtk-1-0 xfprint4 xulrunner-22.0

I think the cause is also lippango.

The only one of those packages that still exists in unstable is
flashplugin-nonfree, in contrib (which is broken in many other ways, and
insecure). #946889 tracks the removal of that dependency; its maintainers
have not responded since the bug was opened 4 months ago.

I think, only anydesk will be a reason not to do a full-upgrade if needed. My two cents!

EDIT: I might be wrong, you can check it with, for example, aptitude why/why-not <package>

As a temp fix, I changed libpango1.0-0 to libpango-1.0-0 in the control file of the dropbox .deb by myself. After that, installs and works flawlessly as expected.

The only application I have which depends on libpango is Deadbeef player. I did the same as McBane, edited the control file and the modified .deb installs fine with libpango1.0-0 gone. As expected too. ;)

I posted the issue at Deadbeef GitHub.

libhdf5-103 is replaced by libhdf5-103-1 so it's probably fine to let that go.

Which editor did you use?

I somehow just donot get it.:-(

I did it with dpkg-deb as root. There are other ways like using fakeroot but that seemed simplest.

Code: [Select]
mkdir tmp
dpkg-deb -R deadbeef-static_1.8.3-1_amd64.deb tmp
nano /home/roger/temp/tmp/DEBIAN/control
dpkg-deb -b tmp deadbeef-static_1.8.3-1~re1_amd64.deb

The first answer on this StackExchange page is helpful:
https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/138188/easily-unpack-deb-edit-postinst-and-repack-deb

I got a reply from Deadbeef's developer. He said libpango is a dependency of GTK anyway so shouldn't even be in the control file. He removed it from the control file in git master.

I relearned it too.  ;) Have done it ages ago but long forgotten. Thanks once again, StackExchange!
