PostgreSQL announced on the 4th of April a security update to its PostgreSQL server.

I really want to install that update. But if I run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade the update does not show up.

How can I install this update?

Server: Ubunutu 12.04 and PostgreSQL 9.2.0

These updates are in the repo. 9.1.9 is the updated 9.1 release.

$ apt-cache policy postgresql-9.1
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 9.1.9-0ubuntu12.10
  Version table:
     9.1.9-0ubuntu12.10 0
        500 quantal-updates/main amd64 Packages
        500 quantal-security/main amd64 Packages

I've just noted you claim to be running PostgreSQL 9.2. If you are, getting updates for it is your responsibility. 9.2 is not a supported version in the main repos.

Thank you for the heads up for the 9.2/9.1 difference. Lets change the version to 9.1 then :) – stUrb Apr 6 '13 at 16:43
