Hi all.

I always try to keep my Bananian installation up to date. Currently I'm running version 16.04 and perform an "apt-get upgrade" from time to time.

Now a new kernel is available but it won't replace/upgrade the old one as usual. Instead I would have to use dist-upgrade to install an additional kernel without upgrading the existing one.

  1. root@pi:~# apt-get upgrade
  2. Reading package lists... Done
  3. Building dependency tree
  4. Reading state information... Done
  5. Calculating upgrade... Done
  6. The following packages have been kept back:
  7.   linux-image-3.4-bananian
  8. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

  9. root@pi:~# apt-get dist-upgrade
  10. Reading package lists... Done
  11. Building dependency tree
  12. Reading state information... Done
  13. Calculating upgrade... Done
  14. The following NEW packages will be installed:
  15.   linux-image-3.4.112-bananian
  16. The following packages will be upgraded:
  17.   linux-image-3.4-bananian
  18. 1 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
  19. Need to get 14.6 MB of archives.
  20. After this operation, 51.6 MB of additional disk space will be used.
Copy the Code

Why does it behave like this and how to do a regular system upgrade as before?


Thank you in advance.



Same question here. Why are certain packages held back?

Hm, if I remember correctly, Ubuntu also updates kernel bundles only if invoking dist-upgrade.

Did you also tried:
  1. bananian-update
Copy the Code
Q: And kernel updates?
A: Use 'bananian-update' to get the lastest kernel and distribution updates.

Found on: https://www.bananian.org/faq

Bananian-Update says "You are already using Bananian 16.04 r01".
So bananian-update seems useless heres, but why?
I can install linux-image-4.4.10-bananian.
After installing it, the sata port is dead.

Has anyone already succeeded to upgrade their version to the lastest image versions (05 or 06 even) with the higher kernels version?
bananian-update gives me also still: "You are already using Bananian 16.04 r01" "No upgrades available" ... and also "apt-get-update && apt-get dist-upgrade" gives me "Calculating upgrade... Done",
"0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded".

Ok, answer to myself:
first update, then apt install linux-image-4.4.66-bananian linux-firmware-image-4.4.66-bananian will do the trick.
