Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Every time I run apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade then, I get libqwt-dev in "the following packages will be upgraded" list. Every time. If I update and upgrade right after I've already done it it is there again. And no error messages saying it failed to upgrade. Any ideas?

Below is the output:

~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

XUbuntu 11.10. Nothing unusual in apt-get output. Everything looks ok but libqwt-dev persists. –  Ivan Jan 12 '12 at 1:32
Of course I can probably just remove it (as far as I understand I don't need a -dev package unless I want to work on Qt code) but I am still curious... –  Ivan Jan 12 '12 at 1:38
Interesting. Was that the complete output? Did apt-get exit 0? –  tumbleweed Jan 12 '12 at 10:38
This bug is already reported and the problem and the solution are already identified, but unfortunately it was not fixed yet. –  user54471 Apr 11 '12 at 15:11
