With the help of c0nv1ct at irc, managed to get the right command.
- Code: Select all
LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8 equo upgrade --pretend --quiet |grep updated: |sed 's/.*: //'
You can change updated
to get the real number of packages involved.
The language thing is needed to force equo use english so the command will work no matter what language is set the system.
