apt 2.1.10 source package in Ubuntu


apt (2.1.10) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Default Acquire::AllowReleaseInfoChange::Suite to "true" (Closes: #931566)
  * acquire: Do not hide _error messages in Fail()
  * Further improvements to HTTP method (Closes: #968220, verified against
    that server and the Canonical infra where it blocked buildds)
    - Do not use non-blocking local I/O - they don't do anything anyway,
      and we can't really use non-blocking I/O here because we need to be able
      to flush it.
    - Restore successful exits from Die() and rewrite Die() in a more
      comprehensible way, after careful code path analysis
    - http: Fully flush local file both before/after server read, avoiding
      both partial flush before sending requests to the server, as well as
      preventing leftover data before receiving from the server, which cause
      data left in the buffer.

apt (2.1.9) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Julian Andres Klode ]
  * http: Fix infinite loop on read errors
  * basehttp: Correctly handle non-transient failure from RunData()
  * Do not retry on failure to fetch (Closes: #968163)

  [ Aleix Vidal i Gaya ]
  * updated catalan translations

apt (2.1.8) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Julian Andres Klode ]
  * Fully deprecate apt-key, schedule removal for Q2/2022
  * apt-key: Allow depending on gpg instead of gnupg
  * Removal of racist terminology, except for two cases that still need consensus
  * Various fixes to http code:
    - http: Always Close() the connection in Die()
    - http: Die(): Merge flushing code from Flush()
    - http: Only return false for EOF if we actually did not read anything
    - http: Die(): Do not flush the buffer, error out instead
    - http: Finish copying data from server to file before sending stuff to server
    - http: On select timeout, error out directly, do not call Die()
    - http: Redesign reading of pending data
    - http: Always write to the file if there's something to write; this fixes
      a regression from removing the buffer flushing code
    Overall, there's hope this Closes: #959518. It reproduced a bit, but eventually
    snapshot.d.o ratelimiting kicked in and broke the test case.

  [ Nicolas Schier ]
  * Support marking all newly installed packages as automatically installed
