32-bit trixie/testing repo not getting updates?

Sat Mar 30, 2024 5:24 pm

Hi all,

It looks like the 32-bit trixie/testing repo is not receiving updates for about a month now. The last update I saw was on 27th Feb for apt (2.7.12) and libffi (3.4.6-1). Aptitude is running normally with no errors, just no updated packages available. Is this the best place to post this to get someone's attention?

Regards,

Hi kerry_s,

Thank you for the response. I've have been using testing on all my RPi for years. I was questioning why a month ago it stopped receiving updates. It's not a question of being supported, especially as packages go into unstable, migrate to testing and then migrate to stable. Usually when testing stops receiving updates it's usually because something has changed/broken on the repo admin side. Unless you are suggesting that there will be no more 32-bit Raspberry OS - citation to your sources welcome.

Regards,
Diddymus

testing/Release and stable/Release both currently have issue dates from yesterday, so both repos are seeing updates.

I'd be more concerned about your apt line:
# aptitude forget-new && aptitude autoclean && aptitude update && aptitude upgrade
I haven't seen aptitude used or recommended in years, though I seem to remember it was the thing to use when Ubuntu first came out. What does the (AFAIK, Raspberry Pi recommended)

Code: Select all

apt update ; apt full-upgrade
do for you?

Hi scruss,

Old school habits die hard :D It's what I've used for ages, been running Debian systems for nearly three decades now. With Raspberry Pi I'm still a bit of a noob and only been running half a dozen for over a decade :oops:

As for the testing repo, the package lists seem to be updated - but the actual packages don't seem to be updating. I'll have to grab the packages.gz today and tomorrow, diff the two and see what should have changed then look at the packages themselves. As an example urlview was updated to version 1d-1 a week ago (Debian testing, 23rd March) and RPi OS testing is still version 1c-1. If you look at 'apt' - Debian updated to 2.7.12 on the 26th Feb and RPi OS picked it up day later on the 27th - both for testing. RPi OS usually follows quickly afterwards.

Diddymus
