package version searching
I'm looking to see what version(s) of mc are present in enabled repos on a
Jessie installation. In openSUSE, I get desired results as follows:
# zypper se -s mc | grep 4.8
il | mc | package | 4.8.17-114.1 | x86_64 | (System Packages)
vl | mc | package | 4.8.15-5.1 | x86_64 | Update
vl | mc | package | 4.8.14-3.8 | x86_64 | OSS
| mc | srcpackage | 4.8.15-5.1 | noarch | Update
l | mc-lang | package | 4.8.15-5.1 | noarch | Update
l | mc-lang | package | 4.8.14-3.8 | noarch | OSS
I can see by looking on
that 4.8.13 and 4.8.18 are present.
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main
but attempts to find anything other than 4.8.13 with apt-cache, apt list or apt
show have proven futile.
1-How can I get similar results from apt as I get from zypper?
2-How can I discover if versions between 4.8.13 and 4.8.18 are available somewhere?
My underlying problem is 4.8.13 and 4.8.18 have problem bugs that are solved or
not yet arisen in 4.8.15 thru 4.8.17.
