vmware-server: Package requests recursive update
|Fabio Massimo Di Nitto|
Binary package hint: vmware-server
Since this morning (Nov7), this package is recursively requesting
upgrade to the same version number (1.0.3-1).
In my first "upgrade", 'apt-get dist-upgrade' reinstalled the apt-cached
version of this package version. That package was about two weeks old.
Before the second upgrade attempt, I deleted the apt-cached version of the
package to allow 'apt-get' to download and install the current repository
package[*], currently dated 6-Nov-2007.
The package installed successfully, but it is *still* requesting
upgrade via update-manager notification and 'apt-get dist-upgrade':
# sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
