Debian has security tracker which shows status of the CVE's in all supported releases. Here is your: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2015-8041 You can check it is fixed in version 2.3-1+deb8u3. The fix was probably backported to the older version, which prevents breaking other things with rebase to new version in stable release (point of ...

I doubt we'll ever be able to tell you where it went, but you should just be able to reinstall it using yum. yum reinstall man yum doesn't check to see if files exist when you run yum install, it just checks a database of which packages have been installed. If someone deletes all the files outside of the package manager, it won't know (you can get it to ...

Given that the repository you're interested in is in your apt sources, you can find the information on the packages available there in the files apt downloads; for the line deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian jessie main non-free these would be respectively /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.de.debian.org_debian_dists_jessie_main_binary-amd64_Packages ...

Aptitude can search by archive name: aptitude search '~Ajessie' ~Aarchive (or, equivalently ?archive(archive)) is documented in the search term reference as Select packages from the given archive (such as “unstable”). If you want only the package names, then pass -F %p to format the output appropriately; by default you'll also get status and short ...

The apt-get upgrade command you have used will only upgrade packages that need no new packages as dependencies. You can use apt-get dist-upgrade to include new packages in the set of candidates. Be aware though that using dist-upgrade will also delete packages that have been obsoleted by other, possibly newer, packages.

The algorithm is described in much detail in the apt_preferences man page. In short, apt calculates a score for every version it knows about, based on command line options, configuration, and already installed packages. It then installs the version with the highest score. You can tweak things by specifying explicit scores for explicit sources, as described ...

Try wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz -O jessie.main.binary-amd64.Packages.gz wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie/non-free/binary-amd64/Packages.gz -O jessie.non-free.binary-amd64.Packages.gz Followed by gunzip jessie.main.binary-amd64.Packages.gz jessie.non-free.binary-amd64.Packages.gz This ...

You should mv the file out of the way: mv /etc/bluetooth/main.conf /etc/bluetooth/main.conf.old apt-get -o DPkg::options::=--force-confmiss --reinstall install bluez I don't know if you can get apt to overwrite an existing config file, that's why you should move it out of the way first.

Using dpkg, you can install multiple packages in a single operation; this will allow installation of packages with a dependency loop. Assuming you have the appropriate packages downloaded: dpkg -i libc6_*deb multiarch-support_*deb libgcc1_*deb will install libc6, multiarch-support and libgcc1.

What a sad thing having a VM without internet access :( I think that you should talk to your boss and tell him that without internet access you can't properly update your linux distro, and this can lead to potential security issues. Anyway, you can browse the Arch Linux official package list from here: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/ You can download a ...

In FreeBSD, you have to explicitly allow services outside the core system to start. In your /etc/rc.conf add the following line: avahi_daemon_enable="YES" (You might also need avahi_dnsconfd_enable="YES".)

A bug that allow a remote individual to crash the software (DoS) isn't exactly at the same level of risk as what we normally think of when we talk about "vulnerabilities". I wouldn't call this a "vulnerable" package; otherwise, you're elevating any bug that can cause the program to crash to a security "vulnerability". Also, it's not clear to me whether ...

You should be able to work it out. Please follow documentation here: http://www.researchut.com/tools/apt-offline And you should only use the newer 1.7 version, from Debian Backports. I recently pushed it there. It solves a lot of bugs there were present in apt-offline from Debian Jessie. http://www.researchut.com/blog/apt-offline-debian-jessie-backports

According to debian-administration some packages are being "kept back" beacause: There we can see four packages haven't been upgraded, even though newer packages are available. This is because two new packages were introduced, and these upgrades depend upon it. To fix this you must run : apt-get dist-upgrade

The guys from MySQL replied and declared this as a bug. The following is their message: Hi, Thanks for the report. This seems to be a bug in the new version of mysql-apt-config. In your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mysql.list file, the line: deb http://repo.mysql.com/apt//debian/ jessie mysql-5.6 mysql-5.7-dmr mysql-5.7 connector-python-2.0 ...

Unfortunately for Python 2.6, compiling from source doesn't work properly on Debian 8 (Jessie) but I found, at least for a Raspberry Pi, that I was able to use older packages from http://packages.debian.org. The order, assuming build-essentials are already in place is something like libdb, python2.6-minimal, python2.6, libpython2.6, python2-6-dev but dpkg -i ...

To answer your main question (Is there an attempt […]?): Surprisingly, yes. Though not relating to the languages or tools you mention. For years (at least 15) — long before Python had a stable, accepted packaging system, and long before Node was a twinkle in anyone’s eye — the FreeBSD operating system has included a system known as “BSDPAN” which wraps ...

Solution 1 Run the following command, replacing package-name with the name of the package: sudo apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" install --reinstall package-name Solution 2 If you have .deb package then go to that directory where package is exist and run, dpkg -i --force-confmiss package-name.deb

The -Ssq flag queries the sync database. Unless you have installed all the packaged in the repos, there should be things in the sync database that are not installed on your machine. To find packages that are installed locally, you need to query the local database with -Qsq.
