apt-move fails to move any packages
The program appears to run correctly in that no error is reported, but no packages are moved. This action work on Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10, but fails on 11.10 and 12.04 Beta1.
Packages located at /var/cache/
The subdirectories named "dists" and "pool" are created, but nothing below that is created.
Steps to reproduce:
After a fresh install, install apt-move:
# sudo apt-get install apt-move
Then run apt-move:
#sudo apt-move update
Output is similar to the following...
dpkg: warning: obsolete option '--print-
Updating from local Packages files...
<NOTE: a list of all packages under /var/cache/
File deletes disabled, skipping.
Creating Packages files...
Creating Release files...
All done, exiting.
Now look to see what was done:
The "dists" and "pool" subdirectories appear, but the following two commands reveal emptyness... nothing is contained in them.
Note that if the option in /etc/apt-move.conf named COPYONLY=no then the files in /var/cache/
