Consider the following:
Package foo is installed (version 1.0). As it is not in any of the

Package foo is available in both repo xyz and pqr. The version in xyz is 0.9
and its priority is 990; the version in pqr is 1.1 and its priority is 500.
Can foo be upgraded to 1.1 or it will be left intact?
Have you tried, to see what happens? --simulate was added for that
reason. I'd try this:
# apt-get --simulate install foo=1.1
