NAME

       dpkg-unhold - mark held packages for installation

SYNOPSIS

       dpkg-unhold [PACKAGE...]

DESCRIPTION

       dpkg-unhold marks package(s) to be installed.

       It  achieves  this by running `dpkg --set-selections' and piping in the
       package name(s) followed by `install'.

       NOTE: This program does not install, remove, purge any package. It ONLY
       sets  the  status of the package. Any actual removal or purging is done
       the next time dselect, apt-get, aptitude, etc are run.

BUGS

       The name is little bit of a misnomer in that it marks the  package  for
       installation. This effectively "unholds" the package if it is held, but
       will  cause  dselect/apt/etc  to  install  it  if  it  wasn't   already
       installed.
