8h
comment find exclude directory
Based on the find | less in the question, the OP is looking for a simple list of files. How does this help with that?

comment With “find /”, skip directories like “/proc”, “/sys” and similar
Might also be a duplicate of find: combining -path and -prune to exclude files and directories or Exclude directory in find.

comment Jessie: can't boot the kernel 3.16.0-4-amd64
/dev/mapper/fabienm-root? Do you have some unusual LVM setup? Also, please consider posting this to the Debian bug tracker; it's impossible to tell for sure from what you've posted here, but it smells a bit like a potential release-critical bug.

comment Which partition is mounted to where?
@Miline /dev/sd* to refer to disks and partitions is Linux-specific as well. Other Unix-like systems solve the same problem but have different naming conventions.

Great! Turns out I didn't give the VM enough disk space to fit everything in there. The package list however looks easily big enough to make sense, after apt-get update + dump/merge-avail + set-selections + apt-mark. This certainly answers the question, but if you can add a TL;DR with just the commands in the correct order (as a bullet list or something) it'd be near perfect.

Okay, that gave a very much shorter list of warnings from --set-selections. Now how do I apply the changes? Even apt-get -u dist-upgrade only mentions a handful of packages (all ZFS-related) where there should be hundreds if not thousands of packages affected.

@Gilles That didn't really make any discernable difference, but I did find something else. See the updated question.

@Gilles Interesting point. I hadn't really considered the possibility, but I do use different mirrors on these. Let me see if it still happens if I point the VM at the same Debian mirror. Stand by.

@Gilles Does it really need to be the full output from dpkg --get-selections (and I assume you meant the dpkg --set-selections transcript?)? Even just the former is over 3,600 lines and right around 100 KB.

comment How to create an /opt partition on an existing installation without loosing data?
So /dev/sdb3 is a LUKS container which in turn holds your LVM container (within which you created the LVs for various file systems), correct?

comment How to create an /opt partition on an existing installation without loosing data?
Maybe I'm missing something obvious. You say /dev/sdb3 is LUKS encrypted, but not what the LUKS container actually contains. Is that part of the LVM setup? Or is it currently not used for anything at all?
