How to use equo command skipping some masked package?

Post by albfneto » Mon Feb 03, 2014 19:29

Is it possible to use the command (equo up) but "skipping" one masked package?

In my system, some packages are masked. some applications only working with old protobuf. I masked protobuf.

Now, when i use "equo up", i want that all the system should be upgraded, except protobuf. Instead, equo process is aborted.

is there an option in equo command, in order to upgrade all packages, except the masked ones?

If some package has a dependency on protobuf being a newer version, no. That's probably why it's being aborted.

I don't think there is equo command equivalent of "--skip-broken" like there is in yum, but I think that's what you are looking for. It would upgrade everything it could and skip any package that has some sort of broken dependency. You could probably file a bug request for such a feature to be implemented.
