I know from an apt update && apt list --upgradable, that there is an upgrade available for a specific package.

Now I am interested in the exact timestamp when that upgrade has been published in the repository.

To be specific, the package in question is openmediavault from http://packages.openmediavault.org/public/ erasmus/main amd64 Packages

As I am writing this question, the version in the repo is 3.0.92 and the server-side change from 3.0.91 to the newer version most likely happened during the last 24 hours. But when exactly?

My system is Debian 8 "Jessie"

Thanks in advance

You won’t get a list of changes over the whole repository, but you can view the timestamps of files on the server: add pool to the main URL, and explore from there. The openmediavault files are here; you’ll see the timestamps there. 3.0.92 is dated November 18 at 10:44 (in the server’s timezone).

  • Thank you so much, I was not aware of the pool directory! Nov 18, 2017 at 12:49
