I'm having some issues with my system and I would like to reinstall packages to see if that resolves it, but I'm not sure how I'd go about doing this. How do I reinstall all installed packages in Alpine Linux?

You can do this by using a combination of apk info and apk fix:

$ apk info | xargs sudo apk fix

Be careful however as this may break your system if you do not have enough storage available to reinstall every package.
