updates in amazon-ec2 ubuntu 10.04 server
When I log into an Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS server, I see the message:
42 packages can be updated. 18 updates are security updates.
But when I try to update this, nothing gets upgraded as would be expected:
$ sudo apt-get update ....snip.... Reading package lists... Done $ sudo apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages have been kept back: linux-generic-pae linux-headers-generic-pae linux-image-generic-pae 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
Any ideas why either nothing was updated, or why the count of 3 (from apt-get) is different than 42? What software says 42 if not apt?
(Other details: This is the server edition, no GUI; I haven't touched the apt configuration files; when I installed the software, I declined to allow automatic updates)
