[SOLVED] Backported package install with unmet dependency

Hello:

My NAS running OpenWRT uses rsync version 3.2.3  protocol version 31 and my Devuan running with a backported kernel uses rsync version 3.1.3  protocol version 31.

beowulf-backports has rsync version 3.2.3-3~bpo10+1, which would be a match.

This is what I get when I try to install it:

:~$ sudo apt install rsync/beowulf-backports
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done

Selected version '3.2.3-3~bpo10+1' (Devuan Backports:3.0.0/oldstable-backports [amd64]) for 'rsync'
Selected version '1.4.4+dfsg-3~bpo10+1' (Devuan Backports:3.0.0/oldstable-backports [amd64]) for 'libzstd1' because of 'rsync'

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
rsync : Depends: libzstd1 (>= 1.4.4+dfsg-3~bpo10+1) but 1.3.8+dfsg-3+deb10u2 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
:~$ 

So ...
Does this mean that I cannot install it because beowulf-backports has libzstd1 1.3.8+dfsg-3+deb10u2 and not 1.4.4+dfsg-3~bpo10+1?
Or am I missing something?

Thanks in advance.

Best,

A.

Just to check, I thought maybe it was a question of installing libzstd1 1.4.4+dfsg-3~bpo10+1 as libzstd1 1.3.8+dfsg-3+deb10u2 was already installed.
ie: for some reason not being updated and be specifically installed from beowulf-backports.

But when I tried I got this huge list of files that are no longer required/removed:

The first thing I notice is that they are all :i386 but I'm not sure of the consequences.
What were they for in the first place?

I'd appreciate an opinion.

Thanks in advance.

Re: [SOLVED] Backported package install with unmet dependency

Perhaps you'll need to upgrade the i386 version at the same time, by adding libzstd1:i386/beowulf-backports to the install line?

Re: [SOLVED] Backported package install with unmet dependency

Use apt install --target beowulf-backports rsync libzstd. The /beowulf-backports incantation doesn't allow for dependencies to be installed from backports.

I think aptitude might be able to figure out the path to installation with the /release syntax where dependencies are involved.

That would seem to do the trick:

groucho@devuan:~$ sudo apt install rsync/beowulf-backports libzstd1/beowulf-backports libzstd1:i386/beowulf-backports

Selected version '1.4.4+dfsg-3~bpo10+1' (Devuan Backports:3.0.0/oldstable-backports [i386]) for 'libzstd1:i386'
The following additional packages will be installed:
  libxxhash0
Suggested packages:
  openssh-server
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libxxhash0
The following packages will be upgraded:
  libzstd1 libzstd1:i386 rsync      # <- what was needed  
3 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.    # <- nothing removed
Need to get 840 kB of archives.
After this operation, 41.0 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] n
Abort.
groucho@devuan:~$ 

I'll try that and report later.

Edit:
Minutes later ...

No, seems it would not work.

groucho@devuan:~$ sudo apt install --target beowulf-backports rsync libzstd
--- snip ---
E: Command line option --target is not understood in combination with the other options
groucho@devuan:~$ 

I use aptitude very little, usually with the why option.

Thanks for your input.

Re: [SOLVED] Backported package install with unmet dependency

Isn't this a question of mixing amd64 & i386? Or am I missing something?

Really cannot say for sure.

What I can say is that ~$ apt list | grep installed | grep i386 shows me a list of 203 files.
ie: if I managed to count correctly at this hour.

Save these 10, all the rest are lib***:

~$ apt list | grep installed | grep i386 | more
elogind/oldstable,now 241.4-2 i386 [installed,automatic]
gcc-6-base/now 6.3.0-18+deb9u1 i386 [installed,local]
gcc-8-base/oldstable,now 8.3.0-6 i386 [installed,automatic]
gstreamer1.0-plugins-base/oldstable,oldstable-security,now 1.14.4-2+deb10u1 i386 [installed,automatic]
--- snip ---
mesa-va-drivers/oldstable,now 18.3.6-2+deb10u1 i386 [installed]
mesa-vdpau-drivers/oldstable,now 18.3.6-2+deb10u1 i386 [installed,automatic]
ocl-icd-libopencl1/oldstable,now 2.2.12-2 i386 [installed,automatic]
vdpau-driver-all/oldstable,now 1.1.1-10 i386 [installed,automatic]
wine32/oldstable,now 4.0-2 i386 [installed,automatic]
zlib1g/oldstable-security,now 1:1.2.11.dfsg-1+deb10u1 i386 [installed,automatic]
~$

Of the whole of them, 183 were installed,automatic while only 2 were installed,local.

~$ apt list | grep installed | grep i386 | grep local | more
gcc-6-base/now 6.3.0-18+deb9u1 i386 [installed,local]
libicu57/now 57.1-6+deb9u4 i386 [installed,local]
~$ 

This leaves 17 that are just [installed].
ie: not [automatic] or [local].

There's probably a way to see what pulled these i386 file in.
One application that comes to mind is wine.

Hope it clears up something.

Best,

A.
