ubuntu apt Package rollback

Versions (?)

Rollback to previous package version after upgrade with Ubuntu 8.04LTS and apt

 / Published in: Other

I recently did an upgrade using apt-get update / upgrade and one of the packages didn't fair so well so I needed to roll it back.

  1. This will show all the versions of the package in the cache
  2. apt-cache show [package name] | fgrep Version:
  4. This will install an older version of the package
  5. apt-get install [package name]=[version]
