weird update issue ... i think
« on: May 07, 2014, 12:25:24 AM »
Howdy all. I thought I would throw this out there in case others are having similar issues.

I updated my VSIDO system several days ago (as I do everyday when I log in) using 'up' (for those who aren't aware this is 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade') and have noticed 2 strange behaviors in my system. I do not know if they are related, but they started happening at the same time.

1. every time I 'up' (as above) I get a message that 'systemd' has been replaced, has been updated, and that I should run 'apt-get autoremove' to clean it. I always do. After which it always removes. Yet it always updates and says it has been replaced. Never ending cycle.

2. control+x takes me to the log out screen, but 'alt-p' for 'power off' greys the log out screen, but never shuts down my machine. Which I easily remedy with 'sudo shutdown -h now'.

I know VSIDO is now on systemd, but also know that I am OCD about system updates, so maybe things are lagging in the Debian world (100% likely). Or maybe I have thrown a wrench in my system (200% likely). Are the two issues related? Is anyone else having a similar experience?

Say the word and I will share your choice of system specs.

Interesting... I do 'up' daily and have not seen an issue like this..  I did see systemd updated a couple of weeks ago (or 3 maybe?)  and have not witnessed anything strange ... I am also not seeing anything from any listbugs or online issues with SID that I watch daily

Run this and let me know what you get

Code: [Select]
se systemd
Also, it is great to see VSIDO users taking advantage of the default aliases ...  8)

V-ger you are superfast! I didn't know about that command, but thanks.

Are these the droids you are looking for?

Code: [Select]
superwow@rlyeh:~$ se systemd
systemd:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 204-10
  Version table:
     208-1 0
          1 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ experimental/main amd64 Packages
     204-10 0
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

All righty then... systemd has been removed and / or you have an older VSIDO system... but you would have been the one to install systemd on an older VSIDO system or you hate systemd and removed it...

It sounds like a reinstall of systemd is the solution?  This will take care of all needed:

Code: [Select]
get systemd systemd-ui systemd-sysv
Anytime you or anyone wants to see all the aliases ...

Code: [Select]
al
in terminal shows them all

VastOne, thanks for the help. I do not remember removing it other than auto-remove at apt-get's prompting. But the advice seemed to do the trick. Several updates run, but no pesky messages. I will go back to pestering my coworkers now :)
