My aim was to switch from a testing to a stable repository. To do that I removed the testing repo, added the stable repo and then installed a specific version from the stable repository. Unfortunately I am now not able to upgrade to a newer version in the stable repository with apt upgrade. I am told the package already has the most current version, which is not true. So any advice how I can enable upgrades again without having to purge the package altogether?

  • What package? Did you perform an apt update first to retrieve the latest list from the repos? Please update your question with this info. – Cliff Armstrong Jul 24 '19 at 15:15

It was my fault. I had wrong version numbers in mind and thought the system would not upgrade to a newer version (that did not exist in reality). So everything worked as expected.
