    This isn't really a warning per se, it's just letting you know there are potential updates for these packages but they are not being installed because you have pinned them to their current version, have not explicitly installed them, they may break other packages you have installed, or a few other things. I wouldn't worry about it. Unless you are having an issue with something else like your mono apps or mono development.

    Hi,

    It seems I have 2 mono running here.

    $ apt-cache policy monodevelop
    Code:
    monodevelop:
      Installed: 1.0+dfsg-3
      Candidate: 1.0+dfsg-3
      Version table:
         2.2.1+dfsg-1~bpo50+1 0

     *** 1.0+dfsg-3 0
            500 http://ftp.hk.debian.org lenny/main Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

    $ apt-cache policy mono-devel
    Code:
    mono-devel:
      Installed: 2.4.2.3+dfsg-2~bpo50+1
      Candidate: 2.6.3-1
      Version table:
         2.6.3-1 0
            500 Index of /  Packages
            500 Index of /  Packages
     *** 2.4.2.3+dfsg-2~bpo50+1 0
              1 http://www.backports.org lenny-backports/main Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    The second one is newer in version? What shall I do? TIA

    You mixed stable with an experimental repo, no big surprise that you can't update.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your advice.

    The unstable version is the latest version of Monodevelop. I'll leave it there as I'll soon wipe out this 32 bit box and reinstall a 64 bit Debian box.
