install issue with bionic packaging -- bind9/bionic 1:9.16.3-1+ubuntu18.04.1+isc+2

Marcel de Riedmatten
Hi all

Can't seems to find a better place to voice an issue with the
installation of the latest packaging for ubuntu bionic which has home
at https://launchpad.net/~isc/+archive/ubuntu/bind.


I meet a dependency issue concerning init-system-helpers which is
currently 1.51 and is asked to be 1.54. Can somebody confirms that ?

root@slavedns:~# apt install bind9

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 bind9 : PreDepends: init-system-helpers (>= 1.54~) but 1.51 is to be
installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Hi Marcel,

this is unfortunately side-effect of how the PPA is provided.  The bind9
package needs debhelper 10 to build, but for Ubuntu Xenial, the debhelper
>= 10 is provided only in xenial-backports.

Unfortunately, the PPA has only one „knob“ that either enables backports
for all Ubuntu releases or none, which in turn leads to bionic-backports
to be enabled which pulls newer build toolchain which in turn adds dependency
on init-system-helpers >= 1.54.

Let me try if I can tweak the dependencies, so I can build with a default set
of dependencies. Meanwhile you can add bionic-backports to your apt sources.list
to solve the missing dependency.

yes it works now:

1) add bionic-backports
2) apt update
3) apt install -t bionic-backports  init-system-helpers 
#   1.56 is installed
4) business as usual

As a user i am very happy with that. Thanks for all your involvement. I
wouldn't be hurt if you had better things to do than to fight a
packaging infrastructure.

Hi Marcel,

I think I figured it out how to build without any additional extra dependencies,
so the next update of the bind9 package for Ubuntu will not require to have
<release>-backports enabled.

Thanks for the valuable feedback.

1:9.16.3-1+ubuntu18.04.1+isc+3
