upgrade path - old pinned packages remain

I used the upgrade script to upgrade my Netrunner 16 installation to Netrunner 17.

Everything seems fine, but I noticed that the following packages that were pinned in Netrunner 16 (or maybe Netrunner 15 - this is my 2nd round of upgrades) remain pinned after the upgrade.

The following packages have been kept back: konsole libqgpgme1 python3-software-properties software-properties-common software-properties-kde

Should I unpin them and if so, how?

Or are there some packages in that list that are obsolete and can be removed?

You can try installing them manually with the command

sudo apt-get install konsole
and so on to see if it will work. Normally they are hold back only because installing them will either remove or install newer packages.

Thanks. The only one with a problem is this one:

[code]~$ sudo apt-get install libqgpgme1

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:
libqgpgme1 : Depends: libgpgme++2v5 (= 4:4.14.10-1ubuntu2) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.[/code]

Not sure if this is an obsolete package I can delete.

Or maybe sudo apt-get -f install ?
