I'm using debsecan to install security updates in my Debian jessie box. I thought that after installing all the packages reported I shouldn't have any pending updatess from Debian-Security repo but it isn't like that:

#: debsecan --suite jessie --format packages --only-fixed
#: apt-get --simulate upgrade | grep "Debian-Security"
Inst libapt-inst1.5 [] ( Debian:8.9/oldstable, Debian-Security:8/oldstable [amd64])
Inst libsoup2.4-1 [2.48.0-1] (2.48.0-1+deb8u1 Debian-Security:8/oldstable [amd64])
Inst libsoup-gnome2.4-1 [2.48.0-1] (2.48.0-1+deb8u1 Debian-Security:8/oldstable [amd64])
Inst libnet-dns-perl [0.81-2] (0.81-2+deb8u1 Debian:8.9/oldstable, Debian-Security:8/oldstable [amd64])
Conf libapt-inst1.5 ( Debian:8.9/oldstable, Debian-    Security:8/oldstable [amd64])
Conf libsoup2.4-1 (2.48.0-1+deb8u1 Debian-Security:8/oldstable [amd64])
Conf libsoup-gnome2.4-1 (2.48.0-1+deb8u1 Debian-Security:8/oldstable [amd64])
Conf libnet-dns-perl (0.81-2+deb8u1 Debian:8.9/oldstable, Debian-Security:8/oldstable [amd64])

I can't figure out why debsecan is not reporting those packages:

#: debsecan --suite jessie --format packages | grep "libapt\|libsoup\|libnet-dns"

Any hint? Thanks.

  • Just in case you wonder, those packages are not whitelisted in debsecan. – Javier Nov 2 '17 at 14:14
