3.6.9 Client Installs on Debian Wheezy, but Held Back on Jessie
Last modified: 2016-04-12 07:40:30 EDT
Description of problem:
The 3.6.9 update of GlusterFS client (unlike all previous updates) is "held back" on Jessie (Debian 8). It installs fine on Wheezy (Debian 7).
This is extremely odd, since Jessie is the *newer* distribution.
Attempting to force-install the component gives:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
Depends: liblvm2app2.2 (>= 2.02.142) but 2.02.111-2.2 is to be installed
Depends: libncurses5 (>= 6) but 5.9+20140913-1+b1 is to be installed
Depends: libssl1.0.2 (>= 1.0.2d) but it is not installable
Depends: libtinfo5 (>= 6) but 5.9+20140913-1+b1 is to be installed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On any Debian 8 (Jessie) system, simply apt-get install glusterfs-common when you have a sources.list file containing:
deb [arch=amd64] http://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/3.6/LATEST/Debian/jessie/apt jessie main
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to upgrade 3.6.8 glusterfs client/common on Debian 8/Jessie to 3.6.9
2. Packages are held back.
3. Attempt to force-upgrade.
4. Receive indication of unavailable required packages.
Unable to install, due to "missing" packages (older versions available, newer versions required).
Installation successful, as with all prior versions.
If this is something that is 'in the pipeline' or being worked on (or, for some unfathomable reason, completely impossible), can we get some documentation of this somewhere?
If this had not installed on Wheezy, I would be much less surprised -- but as it has installed successfully on Wheezy, but refuses to do so on Jessie, this seems quite odd.
/var/cache/pbuilder/apt-cache was polluted with incorrect (newer) versions of dependencies.
Rebuilt cache and rebuilt packages now have correct dependencies.
I can confirm that this is now corrected, and the glusterfs client installs correctly on my jessie instance.
