repository problems with MariaDB 5.5

  • OS: wheezy
    IMSCP 1.1.2

    I get this error message during a debian update:

    1. The following packages have been kept back: mariadb-client-5.5 mariadb-client-core-5.5 mariadb-server-5.5The following packages will be upgraded: libmariadbclient18 libmysqlclient18 linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64 linux-headers-3.2.0-4-common linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 linux-libc-dev mariadb-common mariadb-server-core-5.5 multiarch-support mysql-common10 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.

    please see:

    can I use the pinning solution below to fix that or are there other recommendations?

    1. $ cat /etc/apt/preferences.d/mariadb.pref
    2. Package: *
    3. Pin: origin
    4. Pin-Priority: 1000
  • Hello;

    What is the problem exactly here? Anyway, it's not a problem related to i-MSCP directly. As a Debian administrator, you must be able to handle such situation.

    i-MSCP also pin some repository so before doing anything wrong, think a bit ;)

    Thread moved ;)
