The university where I study hosts an Ubuntu package mirror server, which I normally use to update my repository.
However, right now, I am not in the university and update packages instead from the server from India or the main server.
When I run
sudo apt-get update and
sudo apt-get upgrade, apt-get asks to downgrade a large number of packages (1035 in total).
A related thing I noticed is that if I open synaptic, the 'latest' packages are all quite old, e.g
libunity-core-5.0-5: Installed version 5.20.0-0ubuntu2, Latest version 5.10.0-0ubuntu6.
Even the latest generic linux header and image are shown to be quite old (in fact, the one that comes during install) -version: 126.96.36.199.25 What is the reason for this happening and how can I rectify it?
