I´ve come across a problem while trying to add a new version of an Package in my own apt repo
I have created my own repository with an .deb package using
reprepro. in /pool it references my Package. I created the repo with Version 0.1. Now i Have altered the scripts and want to update it to Version 0.2. So i include the new .deb File to the specific /pool-Entry. Then i try to update the Package and Package.gz Files via
dpkg-scanpackages. It adds the new Version of my package to the files. Now if i want to install a lower version of the package on an diffrent PC via
apt install Package=0.1 i get the error:
Version 0.1 for Package was not found
What have i done wrong? How can i add an Versioning in my apt repo?
thx for awnsers
edit after @Nmath comment:
ok so here we go. I hope its more specific this time:
I have created a working apt-repository using reprepro. I can download the Package with apt after configuring the source. Now i want to publish a new Version. How can i add a new Version to the existing repository? Basically i want to achieve that its possible to use the command "apt install hello=0.1" as well as "apt install hello=0.2" with both Version 0.1 and 0.2 available
A more specific example:
I created a Hello World Programm. So i publish it via apt. so you can use "apt install hello_marske". you can now use "hello_marske" as a command to print "Hello World". This is now Version 0.1
in the next step i changed the Hello World-Skript to take a name as an argument to print "Hello Marske" after using "hello_marske marske". This is now version 0.2. Now i want both those Versions available as an apt repo. So the user has the choice either to use "apt install hello_marske=0.1" as well as "apt install hello_marske=0.2" depending on what functionality the user wants.
To go even further i want to keep a script running that checks whether a new version is available and download that Version asap. But thats only a lookout what i want to achieve and not currently part of the question.
