apt install more than one version, how to remove repos?

robert rottermann

Hi friends

I was playing around on my ubuntu groovy, and tried to install some dell modules that exist for focal.

Tis is what I have done:

sudo sh -c 'cat > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/focal-dell.list << EOF
# deb-src http://dell.archive.canonical.com/updates/ focal-dell public
deb http://dell.archive.canonical.com/updates/ focal-somerville public
# deb-src http://dell.archive.canonical.com/updates/ focal-somerville public
deb http://dell.archive.canonical.com/updates/ focal-somerville-melisa public
# deb-src http://dell.archive.canonical.com/updates focal-somerville-melisa public

Now I have a broken pakage (node.js).

When I try to fix it with:

root@kappi3:/etc/apt# apt --fix-broken install

I get:

The following additional packages will be installed:
The following packages will be upgraded:
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

I already tried to remove the enties I added from /etc/apt

but it did not help.
