[Bug 1597517] Re: linux-headers-3.2.0-105 not in precise-security



- I confirm the above issue in our production servers which are
configured to update their packages only from a local mirror of the
security pocket with unattended-upgrades. They cannot upgrade the linux
kernel to version 3.2.0-105 because the linux-headers-3.2.0-105 package
is missing in the security pocket.

- Usually, the kernel upgrades work well with our local mirror of the
security pocket with unattended-upgrades.

- Aptitude also report this error :

[root@######## ~]# aptitude dist-upgrade
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  linux-headers-3.2.0-105-generic{ab} linux-image-3.2.0-105-generic
The following packages will be upgraded:
  linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic
3 packages upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 39.8 MB of archives. After unpacking 162 MB will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 linux-headers-3.2.0-105-generic : Depends: linux-headers-3.2.0-105 which is a virtual package.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

     Remove the following packages:
1)     linux-generic
2)     linux-headers-generic

     Keep the following packages at their current version:
3)     linux-headers-3.2.0-105-generic [Not Installed]

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] q
Abandoning all efforts to resolve these dependencies.

- Finally, we also cannot install any new server (preseed) because of
this missing dependancy.

  linux-headers-3.2.0-105 not in precise-security

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

  I noticed that linux-headers-3.2.0-105 is not in precise-security.

  Looks like it was published but then removed again:

  Are the headers not always in the security repo if the image is?

  For previous generic kernels like 3.2.0-102 and 3.2.0-104 the headers
  are in precise-security as well instead of only in precise-update.

  See http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/linux-headers-3.2.0-102-generic
  and http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/linux-headers-3.2.0-104-generic

  I ran into this trying to install the virtualbox guest additions into
  a precise64 Vagrant with a 3.2.0-105 kernel. The guest plugin tries to
  install the latest headers like 'linux-headers-`uname -r`'

  see https://github.com/dotless-de/vagrant-

  this fails because the box I am using has precise-security in the
  sources.list but not precise-update.

  I submitted a question about this and was suggested to create a
