live-build encounters apt dependency problem when building with local packages
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


When building with local packages, one encounters a dependency error involving packages 'apt' and 'apt-utils'. This is due to the version of 'apt' in the chroot not being updated to the version considered a dependency of apt-utils (as of this week). It is clear that this is a failure to update during the binary stage when the chroot is restored from the cache/bootstrap step; we know this from the work in T1710. Since this poses an immediate problem for development, we will push a simple workaround by adding 'apt-utils' to the debootstrap options in the live-build-config script. Fixing live-build may not be worth the time at this point.
