I'm in need of knowing what module version a certain perl package (e.g. Net::Cmd) is available in different Ubuntu versions. I'm currently on 16.04 and need a later version of Net::Cmd to resolve (hopefully) an issue we are having in our OTRS implementation.
Short of installing the version is there a way to determine what the version would be for the later versions of Ubuntu? Say 17.04? I'm not opposed to moving to a later version of Ubuntu.
Am I correct in thinking this is a system dependent perl package and therefore is one that should be be update on it's own?
