When trying to update all available packages, or just amanda itself, 
up2date errors with dependency problem

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to update all packages
2.try to update just amanda package

Actual Results:  Get error stating ..

"Could not solve dependency libamanda-2.4.2.so"

Expected Results:  Should update amanda as this program hasn't been 
touched except during initial wolverine install.

I do have kernel 2.4.2 installed/compiled so not sure if this plays a part 
or not, but it shouldn't.  Just thought I should mention it.

Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2001-03-01 16:21:09 UTC
This is more or less "notabug". What is happening is that
amanda has flagged configuration files, and up2date does a config
file check for these packages and by default, does not install
some of the updated amanda packages because of this. 

The easiest thing to do is to run the gui version, and select
all the amanda packages to be upgraded in the "Packages marked to be
skipped list" screen. If all the packages are selected, this depenency
error will not occur.

Ok thanks.  I do have couple amanda packages that are marked as changed so I 
will look into trying that tonight.
