I have messed around with different repositories in some failed attempts on installing some software.
However I now want to revert back to official sources get rid of the random sources erroring and get the correct package versions again.
I see that ppa-purge is recommended but I only find it for Ubuntu.
Do we have an equivalent on OSMC or can I use Ubuntu version?
I think you will be alright just to make sure, /etc/apt/sources.list contains:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://apt.osmc.tv stretch main
and make sure the directory /etc/apt/sources.list.d is empty.
That would solve the sources issues I still think I have lingering updated packages with wrong versions due to my testing.
I’d like to get the proper versions back without reinstalling the Vero, revert the changes I have done.
Sources removed so no errors anymore.
Can I force apt-get to install packages that has the wrong verion compared to the repository?
This without knowing the individual package names?
As a start I would search either this or the Kodi forum as that is not an uncommon issue. If you can’t figure it out then start a new thread with logs and more specific information as it would be completely unrelated to the topic of this thread.
But if you just want to go manual the artwork can be selected from the information screen which on the OSMC remote can be accessed with the “i” key when a library item is highlighted.
