Update nginx > 1.19.4

Hi everyone !

I'm running Chimaera and I would like to update my nginx to >= 1.19.4

When running https://pkginfo.devuan.org/cgi-bin/poli … x&x=submit I get:

nginx

1.22.1-9
  http://deb.devuan.org/merged ceres/main amd64
  http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus/main amd64

1.18.0-6.1+deb11u3
  http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera/main amd64
  http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera/main i386

So it's seem that 1.22.1-9 is ready for the next Devuan release ( I can't wait smile )

But how can I update my Chimaera to a version above 1.19.4 ?

Thanks


Linux noob, plz be kind big_smile

Re: Update nginx > 1.19.4

BTW I followed those instructions

Installing a Prebuilt Debian Package from the Official NGINX Repository

but when I do an sudo apt update

i get

Ign:2 http://nginx.org/packages/debian chimaera InRelease

Consider waiting till the new version becomes available in the Chimaera repository?
Or maybe gets backported?

Debian package Devuan package.
Installing a package from a Debian repository to a Devuan installation is, more often than not, a source of grief and/or problems.
There is a reason for the existence of Devuan repositories.

The NGINX Repository, official or not, is not a Debian or Devuan repository.
Noob or not, one thing you should know by now is that installing from foreign repositories is not advisable. ;^°

That said ...

Just what is it about the next version of nginx that is taking you down this path?
Is there a severe security problem involved?
If that's the case, be sure that a patched version will be available very soon.

Is there some essential functionality you need?
Do bear in mind that latest versions are not necessarily better.
Or as tested by its users as previous ones have been since the last release.

And as such, not necessarily bugless.

Best,

A.

Hello. Did you imported an official nginx signing key so apt could verify the packages authenticity?

Looks like they don't have a devuan repository. You may interchange 'chimaera' with 'bullseye' in 'nginx.list', using an edior or e.g.:

$ sudo sed -i 's/chimaera/bullseye/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nginx.list

Nobody has ever had and probably never will have a repository for "Debian Chimaera".

Other than that, I really would not expect any third party to have Devuan repositories.

Seems like he was just throwing stuff together without understanding what any of it does.

The only real answer would have been "no, it's not going to work", not a Debian package in a Devuan system (which was not what he was trying to accomplish) and not a Bookworm / Daedalus era package in a Bullseye / Chimaera era system (which was what he was trying to accomplish).

I might be misunderstanding something in your comments but want to clarify that Devuan is 99% pure Debian pulling directly from Debian repos with the exception of blacklisted packages. Devuan only forks a few hundered packages. The magic of putting everything together is done with Amprolla.

As to mixing releases . . . yes that is a no-no.

Of course not.
But this is what you get, when using the linked installation instructions on chimaera.

Let's say there was a temptation to suggest "wouldn't you like to do a dist-upgrade to daedalus?", instead of answering the question.
