linux-headers-3.2.0-105 not in precise-security

Asked by vdloo on 2016-06-29


I noticed that linux-headers-3.2.0-105 is not in precise-security.

> Package not available

Looks like it was published but then removed again:

My question is why was it removed? Are the headers not always in the security repo if the image is?

For previous generic kernels like 3.2.0-102 and 3.2.0-104 the headers are also in precise-security instead of only precise-update.

See and

I ran into this trying to install the virtualbox guest additions into a precise64 Vagrant with a 3.2.0-105 kernel. The guest plugin tries to install the latest headers like 'linux-headers-`uname -r`'


this fails because in the box I am using next to our own repo only precise-security is in the sources.list. I feel like adding precise-update to the sources.list in the box will have too much side-effects and adding this linux-headers .deb to our own repo for just this kernel also seems like a bad idea.
