Devuan Jessie: Many packages moved to local/obsolete

On my Devuan Jessie PC, many packages have been moved to the Installed (local or obsolete) status, such as apache2, openssh-client, perl, python, samba, tar.

The problem appears to be caused by a Packages file containing older versions of these packages: … ackages.gz

For example, apache2: My installed apache2 version is "2.4.10-10+deb8u14", but the Packages file version is "2.4.10-10+deb8u12". Any idea what's going on?

Possible that archiving Wheezy/Jessie about a month ago is causing issues now for packages pulled from Debian?

Re: Devuan Jessie: Many packages moved to local/obsolete

I don't know who fixed what, but the packages that got moved to local/obsolete appears normal again. Thanks to whoever it was.

Looks like /jessie/main/binary-amd64/Packages is supposed to say that apache2 version is "2.4.10-10+deb8u12". It's actually /jessie-security/main/binary-amd64/Packages that says apache2 version is "2.4.10-10+deb8u14". Something must have happened in jessie-security a month ago, but has been fixed within the past week.

Yes, finally some action today thanks to parazyd.  I had 73 updates waiting after I updated.
