I’ve just set up a new machine with Ubuntu Oneiric 11.10 and then run
Is there a way, before starting an
aptitude upgrade or
apt-get upgrade, to set up something so that you can “easily” rollback your system to the “apt” state it was before the actual upgrade, if something goes wrong?
What is the difference between
yum update and
yum upgrade, and when should I use one over the other?
We have the unattended-upgrades package upgrading our servers with security upgrades every Monday and it works great. Today though, it upgraded all of our servers with a new version of PHP5. Because we have moved the default PHP5-FPM configuration file, apt complains that the file has been moved, and what would we like to do (Install new version, keep old version, show differences, start shell) about it. Since unattended-upgrades didn’t know how to deal with this, it just aborted and we were left with dozens of machines down until PHP5-FPM was restarted by monitoring.
I have to use Ubuntu 10.04 at work, and can’t upgrade it. I’m using Vim/gVim 7.2.

When doing an
apt-get upgrade I sometimes get a message saying “The following packages have been kept back”. For example:
When I install some system, I usually look for a bulk update method, one that will update my recently-installed software.
