I used synaptic to lock the version of
pidgin-data – how can I change the status from
hold back to normal, so that it gets upgraded properly?
The PinningHowto says that doing an
apt-get install packagename should remove the
hold, but running
dpkg -l | grep ^h still shows it as held:
hi pidgin-data 1:2.10.6-0ubuntu1+pidgin1.12.04 multi-protocol instant messaging client - data files
How can I properly undo the
You can use
sudo apt-mark unhold package_name. The package is unheld and it returns a confirmation:
Canceled hold on package_name..
To unhold all held packages you can use
sudo apt-mark unhold $(apt-mark showhold).
