How can I list all package names and their versions available from a specific package source (official repositories, PPAs or other repositories) ?

Also, how can I filter only the installed packages from that list?
If one version of a package is available from the queried source, but the installed version is from anywhere else, it should not appear in the output.

  • Not sure about the first question but for the last question this might help. – 7_R3X May 10 '16 at 19:35
  • @7_R3X No, I don't care to which version a package would get upgraded, I only want to get a list of packages that is currently installed from a specific software source. – Byte Commander May 10 '16 at 19:36

    @muru: Your linked question only deals with installed packages from that source, not all packages available from it. – David Foerster May 12 '16 at 14:53
