14.2 Release, Just Curious

I have installed and am using 14.x since its release but back on Sept. 1st 14.2 was released. When I use “lsb_release -a” the output says 14.1. Should it display 14.2?( I’ve keep my system update to date)

Can you check if there is a newer base-files package available with

apt-cache policy base-files In a terminal.

This is the ouput from the terminal:

david@david-Inspiron-660s:~$ lsb_release -a

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Netrunner
Description: Netrunner 14.1 (Frontier)
Release: 14.1
Codename: trusty
david@david-Inspiron-660s:~$ apt-cache policy base-files
base-files:
Installed: 6.12ubuntu5+netrunner7
Candidate: 6.12ubuntu5+netrunner7
Version table:
7.2ubuntu5.3 0
500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates/main amd64 Packages
7.2ubuntu5 0

david@david-Inspiron-660s:~$

So there is a newer version available. You can install it with its specific version number by entering

sudo apt-get install base-files=6.12ubuntu5+netrunner8

In a terminal.

This only needs to be done once so in the future netrunner-updates package repo will be used for this package.

P.S.: Please use quotation or code blocks in the future for pasted content like shell output for better readibility. See reference here: http://www.bbcode.org/reference.php

Ok, worked. Thanks for your help and advice!

I guess I need to try this, too. I have Netrunner 14.1 on 2 machines and have never gotten a 14.2 update on either. I didn’t even know there was one available until I saw this.
