Solved: apt upgrade perl 5.28 transition
« on: November 07, 2018, 07:36:57 am »
I was going to post about the perl transtion, I saw the small problems that happened in sid for for transition there
After an "apt update"
Code: [Select]
Hit:1 testing/updates InRelease
Hit:2 testing InRelease
Max. recursion depth with nested structures exceeded at /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/perl/5.28/ line 278, at /usr/bin/apt-show-versions line 271.
Reading package lists... Done
E: Problem executing scripts APT::Update::Post-Invoke-Success 'test -x /usr/bin/apt-show-versions || exit 0 ; apt-show-versions -i'
E: Sub-process returned an error code

My system
Code: [Select]
CPU: Single Core Intel Atom N270 (-MT-) speed/min/max: 1530/800/1600 MHz
Kernel: 4.18.0-2-686 i686 Up: 10h 58m Mem: 532.1/993.3 MiB (53.6%)
Storage: 164.09 GiB (16.6% used) Procs: 159 Shell: bash 4.4.23 inxi: 3.0.27
   LXQT for a couple years on this one. 

Nothing on;package=apt 

No I have not used CPAN in ages. 
I have a very small /etc/apt/sources...
Code: [Select]
deb testing main contrib non-free
deb-src testing main contrib non-free
deb testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src testing/updates main contrib non-free
## deb testing main non-free

## Other repos can be found in /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory ##

Code: [Select]
### sparky testing repository
### used as default by all sparky editions
#deb testing main
#deb-src testing main
     others in source.d/ also commented out. 

My guess is that it will get fixed soon. 

I did not see this is 3 virtual machines, so far.  ttfn

edit found it;
perl: Storable stack recursion limit probe in 5.28 seems overly sensitive
