XU4 kernels

Post by johnvick »

apt-get update / upgrade gave me this:

The following packages have been kept back:
linux-image-armhf-odroid-xu3

Is there a way I can find the kernel version being held back and the reason for it being held back?

Hi John,

I believe Meveric flags kernel/firmware packages as dist-upgrade only. So you'll need to run:

Code: Select all

apt-get dist-upgrade
I'd imagine this is to prevent users from updating kernel/firmware unexpectedly.

Code: Select all

root@DietPi:~# apt-get dist-upgrade

The following NEW packages will be installed:
  linux-image-3.10.105+

root@DietPi:~# apt-get upgrade

The following packages have been kept back:
  linux-image-armhf-odroid-xu3

If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.

Hi Fourdee,

Just a minor kernel update not the 4.9 one I was hoping for.

Thanks again for your help.

John
