check-support-status - check installed packages for security support (debian-security-support)
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
--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. --except PACKAGES Do not alert for the given binary packages (comma-separated list). Default: Alert for all packages (no exceptions). --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.
Installations with mixed distributions like half-stable, half-testing are not supported.
