Duplicate package entries shown when listing by package origin
Status in apt-xapian-index package in Ubuntu:
Status in synaptic package in Ubuntu:
Synaptic 0.83 (also was in 0.82.5 I believe)
- Ubuntu Xenial
What should happen:
Synaptic should as previously show a single item for each package when
viewing package list from a particular 'origin'.
What does happen:
For many packages up to 4 identical entries are shown for each
package. See attached screencap.
Duplicate list items are quite literally identical and are true
duplicates as they relate to the identical package in all respects,
including full version. In fact, so much so, that selecting one of a
duplicate for an operation such as install/upgrade/remove etc selects
and then operates on all the duplicate entries as well.
Same problem has been noted on a real machine and in VM running
variants of Xenial - Xubuntu/Kubuntu etc, with or with any ppas
present on system.
