Re: squeeze-lts dist-upgrade to wheezy failed @ apt

Hi again,

I just wanted to follow up with more info.

I think these packages that want to stay with squeeze are pinned, for example:

root@gilgamesh:~/tmp# apt-cache policy perl-base
  Installed: 5.10.1-17squeeze6
  Candidate: 5.14.2-21+deb7u2
  Version table:
     5.14.2-21+deb7u2 0
        500 http://mirror.cc.columbia.edu/debian/ wheezy/main i386 Packages
 *** 5.10.1-17squeeze6 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

But I have no /etc/apt/preferences file on this machine &
/etc/apt/preferences.d is empty

Is it the case that during a dist-upgrade, the system might internally
be pinning some packages for certain stages of the upgrade?  Or should
I try to unpin it somehow?

Thanks again,
