Debian Volatile out of date on mirror.bytemark?


#1

Some Debian Volatile packages are out of date on Bytemark’s mirror. It looks as though mirror.b.c.u may be mirroring an incorrect host for this repo. For the time being, volatile is I think carried on volatile.debian.org not ftp.debian.org, see http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/debian-volatile/README.txt.

For instance clamav is at 0.96.1 on mirror.bytemark but should be at 0.96.3 :

apt-cache policy clamav

clamav:
Installed: 0.96.1+dfsg-1~volatile1
Candidate: 0.96.3+dfsg-1~volatile1
Version table:
0.96.3+dfsg-1~volatile1 0
800 http://volatile.debian.org lenny/volatile/main Packages
*** 0.96.1+dfsg-1~volatile1 0
800 http://ftp.uk.debian.org lenny/volatile/main Packages
800 http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk lenny/volatile/main Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Hope this is useful,

Hi Nick,

It was indeed out of date. The mirror was being push-triggered, but for some reason these triggers have stopped.

I’ve just run the mirror sync manually, and will move the sync on to a 4-hourly cron job until push-triggers are restored.

I did check with upstream last week as it turns out, but there hadn’t been update since August.

Best wishes,

Patrick
