[OK] libstdc++6 and perl transitions

Unread post by machinebacon » Thu Dec 17, 2015 5:30 pm

Don't dist-upgrade, as this affects gcc and parts of the base system. Be patient until the transition is over. Might take a week or so.

https://release.debian.org/transitions/html/perl.html
https://release.debian.org/transitions/ ... dc++6.html

Edit:
The transition is over, please run "sudo apt update" before dist-upgrading and check that removed packages are replaced with newer versions.

Calculating upgrade... Error!
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
xserver-xorg-core : Depends: keyboard-configuration but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Had to at least pretend, was curious what it would say; No real winter storms, so this will do

Added perl transition warning. This is even more serious, because shit like debconf depends on it.

So seriously, don't dist-upg for a while.

The perl transition seems over.

perl-modules will be replaced by perl-modules-5.22. Perl 5.20 will be replaced by perl 5.22.

Regardless assure that your packages are in sync with the Debian mirrors.

Edit: As of now no other package is going to be removed on my side.

Yes, looks good now. The ftp.cn.debian.org server is apparently broken, the release file was something like 30MB big (probably bigger, I ctrl-c it after a while), but the main US server is in sync. A really huge upgrade here on my side, 405 MB...

So, I mark this one as fixed.

Yes, it was quite a big upgrade, a ton of perl packages of course. Autoremove though looks really bad. :) So be aware of it.
