apt 1.6.17 source package in Ubuntu


apt (1.6.17) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Bump cache minor version for kernel collection.
    The previous update introduced the new kernel autoremoval code which
    collects kernels in the cache as providers of a $kernel package.
    We need to bump the cache minor version for this as otherwise the
    $kernel package might not exist and all kernels end up autoremovable
    until a package got installed or sources updated.

apt (1.6.16) bionic; urgency=medium

  * postinst: Do not run removed kernel postinst.d script (LP: #1974456)

apt (1.6.15) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Revert "Protect currently running kernel at run-time"
  * Backport Determine autoremovable kernels at run-time (LP: #1615381) as of
    2.4.5; including the change to only protect two kernels, not last installed
    one (LP: #1968154)
