Hey, I just upgraded a system that had ifupdown from backports.org on it. Following cleanup and dpkg --audit etc., I ran root@cymbaline:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The following packages will be REMOVED: ifupdown libasprintf0c2 libperl4-corelibs-perl libuuid-perl python-bson python-pymongo and indeed, it then went on to remove ifupdown. What am I not understanding right here? Shouldn't "apt-get upgrade" NEVER EVER EVER EVER remove something? Can I find out in hindsight (can't reproduce this) what might have happened?
