View Full Version : [ubuntu] How does apt-get determine which version to get from repository?

September 27th, 2010, 10:04 PM
I am doing on 9.04 jaunty:

apt-get install libssl-dev

and it is requesting:

Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl-dev_0.9.8g-15ubuntu3.4_amd64.deb

How is it determining 3.4 is the version that corresponds to 9.04? How does the number at the location of 3.4 correspond to ubuntu versioning?

The correct url is:

http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl-dev_0.9.8g-15ubuntu3.5_amd64.deb (http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl-dev_0.9.8g-15ubuntu3.4_amd64.deb)

How do fix apt-get to get correct version?
Why is it failing in this instance?

Solution: apt-get update
