Fwd: Re: [Question #678573]: Failure to sync Debian-Med packages to Ubuntu
I also received this follow-up from Ubuntu Launchpad: Seems our only
option would be to back-port the new versions to get them into 18.04.
This is one reason why people stop using packaged versions and compile
the latest version from source themselves or use Bioconda:
(bioconda3)root@beluga:~# lsb_release -d
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS > (bioconda3)root@beluga:~# conda search abyss
Loading channels: done
# Name Version Build Channel
abyss 1.5.2 boost1.61_0 bioconda
abyss 1.5.2 boost1.61_1 bioconda
abyss 1.5.2 boost1.61_2 bioconda
abyss 2.1.3 h02d93b8_0 bioconda
abyss 2.1.4 h02d93b8_0 bioconda
abyss 2.1.5 h02d93b8_0 bioconda
Using Debian-Med imports to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS I'm stuck with:
root@beluga:~# apt policy abyss
*** 2.0.2-3 500
500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic/multiverse amd64 Packages
I really don't want to base Bio-Linux on bleeding-edge Ubuntu 19.04 just
to get updated versions of certain bioinformatics packages...
Although it might be an unpopular view on this list, I really think we
need to discuss openly why Bioconda was developed and what it's good at.

Your question #678573 on Ubuntu changed:
Manfred Hampl proposed the following answer:
abyss version 2.1.5-4 is available in Ubuntu disco (development version, to be published in April).
Similar for metaphlan2 version 2.7.8-1
Versions in older Ubuntu releases are updated to the newest version only in specific cases.
This is somewhat similar to Debian, where packages in jessie and stretch aren't automatically updated either.
