linux-image-amd64 held back

  • I just reinstalled OMV5 & omv-extras, enabled backports from web ui & now apt upgrade gives me the following:

    Code
    The following packages have been kept back: linux-image-amd64 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.The following packages have been kept back: linux-image-amd64 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

    How do I troubleshoot. Preliminary googling shows nothing useful.

  • Code
    sudo apt-cache policy linux-image-amd64

  • I have seen this problem from time to time. It clears itself eventually and I never found out what causes it. I didn't do anything to try to fix it.

    OMV AMD64 5.x on ASRock Rack C2550D4I C0 Stepping - 16GB ECC - Silverstone DS380 + Silverstone DS380 DAS Box.

  • I think the omv-aptclean fixed it because it says 5.5 is a candidate. If it still won't install, apt-mark unhold linux-image-amd64 should do it.

  • Not a problem for me just a related observation.


    I have linux-image-amd64 5.5.17-1~bpo10+1 installed.


    But what is shown in the kernel list in OMV-Extras kernel tab in the drop down box is Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 5.5.0-0.bpo.2-amd64.

    Sadly, still a problem.

  • Only read, never post .. sorry if I don't follow correct posting etiquette.


    Was having the same problem, so tried to force the install


    Told me there was unmet dependencies .. so installed linux-image-5.5.0-0.bpo.2-amd64


    I'm very much a Debian beginner .. and potentially have broken something .. but things now appear to be working

  • Funny thing but I had two files held back a couple of days ago when upgrading a Debian 10 desktop. I’m almost sure one of them was linux-image-amd64. Can’t remember if I just restarted and tried apt-get update and upgrade again, or what, but all went well. Wish I had paid better attention.

    RAID is NOT a backup and not useful for most home users. Rsync makes true backup and restoration stupid easy, and it's built right in to OMV. Use this command in a Scheduled Job: rsync -av --delete /srv/dev-disk-by-label-NAMEofSOURCEdisk/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label-NAMEofDESTINATIONdisk/

    Hardware: OMV 5 (current) - NanoPi M4: Nextcloud, Plex, & Heimdall - Acer Aspire T180: backup - Odroid XU4: Pi-Hole (DietPi) - Odroid HC2, Raspberry Pi 3B+, and HP dx2400: testing.

  • Reinstalled debian from scratch twice with same problem

    I think this is the repo you are using. The linux-image-amd64 might not be pointing at the 5.5.0-0.bpo.2 package yet. I just installed debian 10 and it worked fine.
