When I'm checking my postfix version

postconf -d | grep mail_version

the output I get is

mail_version = 2.11.0 milter_macro_v = $mail_name $mail_version

But when I run apt-get install postfix, it returns "postfix is already the newest version".

My sources.list content :

    Then that is the latest package from the repositories your system is configured to reference. What distribution are you using, what is in your /etc/apt/sources.list and any files in the sources.list.d directory, and what version of postfix are you wanting? – ivanivan Dec 31 '18 at 5:08
  • postfix version 2.11.x is the Debian oldstable version. If that's what you've got installed, I highly suggest you upgrade your system to a newer distribution... You can check all versions available for postfix in your configured repos via apt-cache show postfix | grep Ver – RubberStamp Dec 31 '18 at 13:09
  • You will need to change Ubuntu distros to install postfix 3.3 via official repo sources... Ubuntu postfix version page – RubberStamp Dec 31 '18 at 13:41
