bpkg pkg-status|status [options] [pkg[/ver]...]
The pkg-status command prints the status of the specified packages or, if ver is specified, package versions. If no packages were specified, then pkg-status prints the status of all the held packages (which are the packages that were explicitly built; see bpkg-pkg-build(1)). Additionally, the status of immediate or all dependencies of the above packages can be printed by specifying the --immediate|-i or --recursive|-r options, respectively. Note that the status is written to stdout, not stderr.
The status output format is regular with components separated with spaces. Each line starts with the package name (and version, if specified) followed by one of the status words listed below. Some of them can be optionally followed by ',' (no spaces) and a sub-status word.
Package is not part of the configuration nor available from any of the repositories.
Package is not part of the configuration but is available from one of the repositories.
Package is part of the configuration and is fetched.
Package is part of the configuration and is unpacked.
Package is part of the configuration and is configured. May be followed by the system sub-status indicating a package coming from the system. The version of such a system package (described below) may be the special '*' value indicating a wildcard version.
Package is part of the configuration and is broken (broken packages can only be purged; see bpkg-pkg-purge(1)).
If only the package name was specified without the package version, then the available status word is followed by the list of available versions. Versions that are only available for up/down-grading are printed in '' (such version are only available as dependencies from prerequisite repositories of other repositories). If the --system option is specified, then the last version in this list may have the sys: prefix indicating an available system version. Such a system version may be the special '?' value indicating that a package may or may not be available from the system and that its version is unknown.
Similarly, if only the package name was specified, then the fetched, unpacked, configured, and broken status words are followed by the version of the package. If newer versions are available, then the package version is followed by the available status word and the list of newer versions. To instead see a list of all versions, including the older ones, specify the --old-available|-o option. In this case the currently selected version is printed in '()'.
If the package name was specified with the version, then only the status (such as, configured, available, etc.) of this version is considered.
If a package is being held, then its name is printed prefixed with '!'. Similarly, if a package version is being held, then the version is printed prefixed with '!'. Held packages and held versions were selected by the user and are not automatically dropped and upgraded, respectively.
Below are some examples, assuming the configuration has libfoo 1.0.0 configured and held (both package and version) as well as libfoo 1.1.0 and 1.1.1 available from source and 1.1.0 from the system.
bpkg status libbar libbar unknown bpkg status libbar/1.0.0 libbar/1.0.0 unknown bpkg status libfoo/1.0.0 !libfoo/1.0.0 configured !1.0.0 bpkg status libfoo/1.1.0 libfoo/1.1.0 available 1.1.0 bpkg status --system libfoo/1.1.0 libfoo/1.1.0 available 1.1.0 sys:1.1.0 bpkg status libfoo !libfoo configured !1.0.0 available 1.1.0 1.1.1 bpkg status libfoo/1.1.1 libbar libfoo/1.1.1 available 1.1.1 libbar unknown
Assuming now that we dropped libfoo from the configuration:
bpkg status libfoo/1.0.0 libfoo/1.0.0 unknown bpkg status libfoo libfoo available 1.1.0 1.1.1
And assuming now that we built libfoo as a system package with the wildcard version:
bpkg status libfoo !libfoo configured,system * available 1.1.0 1.1.1
Also print the status of immediate dependencies.
Also print the status of all dependencies, recursively.
Print old available versions.
Print version constraints for dependencies.
Check the availability of packages from the system.
Don't print the package or version hold status.
Don't print the package hold status.
Don't print the version hold status.
