Just installed latest Parrot 3.11 from USB key - first thing I do is:
sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade
It then updates 1,338 packages.
Question: When the update process suggests to overwrite the AppArmor Files (Tor Firefox, etc) - I presume I am to keep my “locally modified” (I assume Parrot team modified) versions in
Nice thanks lawyer…
How can I automate the installation so that it does not prompt for:
a - /etc/apparmor.d/… - select the default option (keep user setting)
b - apt packates - prompts for wireshark, and libc installation package options (allows regular user to capture packates, etc…)
Are there parameters that I can supply to
apt dis-upgrade to do the right thing??
So I can just automate it and go off and leave it to complete installation (yes - it takes over an hour to apply all 1,330 packages!)
Never tried this, but
apt-get --assume-no should work
And if i didnt ‘keep’ those but overroad them with the update, is there any way of fixing it?
yeah - it’s called “Restage!”
I always run “sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade” as Palinuro suggested for rolling-distros…And never had a question during update process to overwrite apps. Is it normal? I only had questions about Tor app -If I want to : a.) keep as it is or b.) to update to maintainers version…So I always choose b. (or 2.)
How to check if I’m doing right?
if the mentioned software u never used or the config profile had never modify, then overwrite it to install last version. if it was modified, then keep or modify it again after upgrade.
lawyer - Sorry for asking, but what does “apt-get -n” do? What does “-n” stand for?
Thanks in advance.
Thats my fault, i correct it.
Man page of apt-get:
-y, --yes, --assume-yes
Automatic yes to prompts; assume "yes" as answer to all prompts and
run non-interactively. If an undesirable situation, such as
changing a held package, trying to install a unauthenticated
package or removing an essential package occurs then apt-get will
abort. Configuration Item: APT::Get::Assume-Yes.
Automatic "no" to all prompts. Configuration Item:
lawyer - Thanks for explaining.
So one would type the following:
use apt instead of apt-get, its an enhanced version with some --flags enabled by default
and use aptitude for debugging/testing
you should let apt overwrite updated confogurations unless YOU modified them, because we are the owners of the apt archive and we are the guys proposing our changes or accepting the debian ones
everything “new” that you receive is delivered by us
