1004 apt-get upgrade downloads all packages
« on: November 08, 2011, 09:16:23 pm »
Likely this is a basic question because I don't really understand the apt package updating system...

I'm running 1004 and every day when I run apt-get upgrade it downloads 440MB of packages:

Code: [Select]
lmce-autotagger lmce-game-db lmce-launch-manager lmce-linux-igd lmce-mediatomb
  lmce-mythtv-scripts lmce-picture-plugin lmce-picture-viewer lmce-skins-slate lmce-skins-titanium lmce-skins-uita
  lmce-update-system mce-diskless-tools pluto-add-software pluto-app-server pluto-asterisk pluto-avwizard
  pluto-avwizard-skin-basic pluto-boot-scripts pluto-capture-card-scripts pluto-confirm-dependencies pluto-convert-mac
  pluto-createdevice pluto-database-settings pluto-dcecommon pluto-dcerouter pluto-dhcpd-plugin pluto-disc-drive-functions
  pluto-disk-drive pluto-disk-monitor pluto-dummy-console-tools pluto-dynamic-dns pluto-generic-serial-device

  pluto-network-storage pluto-newmdinteractor pluto-orbitergen pluto-orbiterinstaller pluto-photo-screen-saver
  pluto-pluto-main-db pluto-pluto-media-db pluto-pluto-security-db pluto-pluto-telecom-db pluto-plutodhcp pluto-plutoutils
  pluto-pnp-detection pluto-proxy-orbiter pluto-qos pluto-ra pluto-raid-tools pluto-remoteassistance pluto-sample-media

  pluto-slim-server-streamer pluto-slimserver-plugin pluto-sound-card-scripts pluto-sqlcvs pluto-std-plugins
  pluto-storage-devices pluto-system-database pluto-telecom-database pluto-test-serial-port pluto-text-to-speech
  pluto-updateentarea pluto-updatemedia pluto-voicemail-monitor pluto-website-admin pluto-windowsce-libraries
  pluto-x-scripts pluto-xine-player pluto-xine-plugin pluto-zwave-lighting

Doesn't look in SVN like all of these packages have been updated recently. (When 810 was under development, apt-get upgrade would only upgrade packages which had updates)

Is my 1004 system behaving as it should?

1004's build has been run a few times recently...any time the build is run, all packages are updated. This is because the system is under development, and we need to make sure everything is in sync.

Makes sense, thanks Thom
