Re: Weird Upgrade procedure - Debian Testing.

It'll be upgrading a heap of files, so, it'll delete the old ones (225.5MB of old ones) and download the new ones (227MB), Hope 'm explaining this right, I've had no sleep!

$shutdowm -h now

Subject: Weird Upgrade procedure - Debian Testing.

While trying to upgrade my Debian Testing system, it shows me a horde of
packages that could be upgraded. But take a look at the bottom of this output where it mentions the size et al. The size of the _to_be_fetched_ packages is
227MB, while it is gonna use around 1.5MB of disk-space??

Kinda weird..I don't understand. I would simply download the single 1.5MB
Package, right?

Anybody experiencing similar problems?

I tried the same with aptitude, with the same results.
