I’m just an average guy with a way above average interest in computer programming, gadgets, and all things hackable. I program for work, I program for fun, and I’m learning more about electronics all the time. I’ll be the first to tell you when I don’t know something, but I might ask a lot of questions. Above all, I’m in it for the thrill of doing something new and exciting. Please feel free to ask me any questions, I love to help.

comment How can I undo or rollback an “apt-get upgrade” command on Ubuntu?
I think that is what we will end up doing test our software on a dev machine. The possible issue we have is that our test hardware won't be completely homogeneous.

I could (and probably will) take a bare metal backup, but I wanted a software option that would let me undo the upgrade in a faster time frame. Restoring from the bare metal backup could take several hours.

I haven't done it yet, but this is a production server and I need to be sure there's no incompatibilities with our custom PHP/MySQL/Apache2 setup, and get back quickly if there is. I'd like to upgrade because I think it will fix another problem I'm having.
