Default Bug#603068: tex-common,texlive-binaries: can't be installed together

Dear dpkg maintainers,

I have a question concerning dpkg-query, it seems that the semantics
of it has changed:

Currently, when I call
dpkg-query -W -f='${Status}' texlive-base
it returns 1 (error) if texlive-base is not installed (or going to
be installed).

This breaks installation of tex-common with texlive-binaries, but without
texlive-base.

As far as I remember in former times this was working, so is this a
recent change, and was it intended, or is this a coding error from
our side.

In principle what we are doing the in the tex-common trigger action
is to check whether texlive-base is installed, and if it is we run
some commands.

Thanks and all the best

Norbert

Sorry dpkg guys for involving you into that.

I have seen the bug report, checked the code, missed the || true I had
already added, and only afterwards realized the the bug report
was done with an ancient version of tex-common - which I also missed.

Right, but this is not up to me to find out ;-)

Again, sorry for the noise, and thanks for the replies.

Best wishes

I wasn't complaining about you, more about myself and excusing
myself not to have read properly ...

Your work is much appreciated!!!

Best wishes
