I'm asking this question in the Subject because when I want to fill a
bugreport with reportbug, I get message:

Getting status for projectcenter.app...
Checking for newer versions at madison, incoming.debian.org and

Your version (0.6.0-1+b1) of projectcenter.app appears to be out of
The following newer release(s) are available in the Debian archive:
  testing: 0.6.0-1+b2
  unstable: 0.6.0-1+b2
but when I search for the projectcenter.app package, I get only
aptitude search projectcenter.app
i A projectcenter.app


aptitude show projectcenter.app
Package: projectcenter.app               
State: installed
Automatically installed: yes
Version: 0.6.0-1+b1
so I don't understand that that if the Debian repository has a newer
projectcenter.app than on my Debian wheezy/sid system however I did
'aptitude update' then why can't I install the ...+b2 version instead of
...+b1 version?
