When I run
sudo aptitude update from the console, I see output with lines such as this:
Get:1 http://security.ubuntu.com lucid-security Release.gpg [198B] Ign http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid-security/main Translation-en_GB
Hit http://security.ubuntu.com lucid-security Release.gpg Ign http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid-security/main Translation-en_GB
It's fairly clear that
Get:N indicates a download,
Hit indicates when I've got something already, and that whatever
Ign lines are, they can appear even if
source.list has no comments, so they're not 'skipping comment' indicators as I've seen some people say.
After a fair amount of googling, though, that's as far as I've been able to get, so I have two questions:
- What exactly does the
- Is there any documentation (official or otherwise) that lists all the available codes along with what they're for?
