2009-08-25 19:08:05 Jon Arnold description Binary package hint: update-manager Don't think this is related to bug #13408, because I only experience this on partial upgrades. Steps: 1) Lock a PPA version of a package (Frescobaldi) in synaptic, so that it does not install the Ubuntu repository version. (FYI, the repo version has different dependencies that I don't want). 2) On normal updates, the update-manager will now ignore that package. 3) If some other package triggers a partial upgrade, update-manager will try to upgrade frescobaldi along with its dependencies, forcing me to uninstall it, do the partial upgrade, force the version I want to reinstall, and then lock it back every time there's a partial upgrade. Partial upgrades should listen to the version lock as well, in my opinion.
