Hi there,

I have a problem with debian and apt pinning.

Problem description:

In my sources.list a have a reference to debian backport. When i check for packages available for update, all debian backport packages get listed.

any ideas?

I know that this issue has been discussed before, but I didn't find a solution for my problem in those postings.

Hi there,

Does anyone of you use APT pinning (for example with debian backports) without having this problems?

Best regards
