NAME

       check-support-status - check installed packages for security support
       (debian-security-support)

VERSION

       Version 2018.01.29

SYNOPSIS

       Search for packages whose support is limited, has already ended or will end earlier than
       the distribution’s end of life:

           check-support-status

       Search for packages with ended support from a custom list, reporting each package only
       once:

           check-support-status \
               --type ended \
               --status-db /path/to/status-db \
               --list /path/to/security-support-ended

OPTIONS

       --list FILE
           Use the given file as the database of packages whose support ends at a particular date
           or that is limited by specific conditions. The file format is plain text in columns,
           separated by one or more whitespace characters.

           For --type earlyend:

           ·   source package name

           ·   last package version that will be supported

           ·   the date support will end

           ·   the rest (optional): details, and/or a URL for further information.

           For --type ended:

           ·   source package name

           ·   last package version that is supported

           ·   the date support was ended

           ·   the rest (optional): details, and/or a URL for further information.

           For --type limited:

           ·   source package name

           ·   the rest (optional): details, and/or a URL for further information.

           If no "--list" is provided, the script is run for limited and date-defined end of
           support, using the lists shipped in the package.

           By default, check-support-status evaluates the status of the packages according to the
           Debian version where it runs upon. This behavior can be modified using the
           DEBIAN_VERSION environment variable, e.g.

               DEBIAN_VERSION=9 check-support-status

       --no-heading
           Skips printing a headline.

       --status-db FILE
           Use the given file to record alerts so each affected package is reported only once.

           Default: No records, any affected package will be reported every time.

       --type TYPE
           One of the following:

           ·   "earlyend": Alert for packages whose support will end earlier than the
               distribution’s.

           ·   "ended": Alert for packages where security support has ended.

           ·   "limited": Alert for packages where security support is limited.

       --version, --Version, -V
           Show the version number and exit.
