Cumulus and Debian updates


I noticed Cumulus ignores newer Debian packages that are available. Is there a way to change this?

I’m guessing it does some kind of pinning / weighting to prefer packages from the cumulus repo.

Hi ,

Please review

Hi, thanks - I had a look at that link.

Seems pretty easy to add packages from the main Debian repo - that part works.

I’m wondering how I upgrade packages which are in the Cumulus repo and in the Debian one. For example openssl recently had a security update.

The Cumulus switch can show me the newer package available in Debian, but it does not want to install it. I think Cumulus does some special magic to keep packages stable which are in the Cumulus repo? Is there a way to force an upgrade in some cases?
