I use Terminal to update my Ubuntu MATE, as I have used on my regular Ubuntu since 10.04, and over last month or so, I have been getting several messages saying that packages have been held back. I have been using aptitude to get around this. However, recently, I have been ignoring that message and lo and behold, eventually the packages were updated. The most recent was all compiz.
My question is the package updates I forced using aptitude, forcing the update -- Will this cause any issues? From now on, I will not force the updates as they will update, I assume when the maintainers determine that the updated are vetted and ready for update.
