It’s common practice to verify signing keys and fingerprints from numerous sources. Is there a way to confirm from other sources that the update checker on my system is accurate?
This might be overly cautious, but I would, for instance, like to see that new updates have indeed been released before proceeding to update templates. I have been getting repeated notifications to update my Debian templates, but it’s not clear where I can see a list of the actual updates from a source other than my updater.
For instance, today I got another notification to update my templates but when I manually check Index of /r4.1/vm/dists/bullseye/main/ there is no indication of recent updates. If the notification is due some other package I installed that isn’t part of official distro updates, is there a convenient way of locally listing those packages and manually confirming elsewhere that updates have in fact been released?
