Same question as how-to-downgrade-a-package-via-apt-get, except what if it's on a newly deployed server and the archived
.deb is not there?
For example, https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/amd64/wget tells me the previous version is
1.13.4-1ubuntu2, and I have
$ dpkg -l | grep wget ii wget 1.13.4-2ubuntu1 retrieves files from the web
When I try to force the version:
vagrant@es2:~$ sudo apt-get install wget=1.13.4-1ubuntu2 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Version '1.13.4-1ubuntu2' for 'wget' was not found
Is there a way to "ask"
apt-get update to fetch information/URLs/etc. about older versions?
Is the solution to run my own apt repository with the versions I want?
