4 .SH NAME
5 apt-installed-status \- get the repository an installed package comes from
6 .SH SYNOPSIS
7 apt-installed-status [ \fIOPTION ...\fR ]
8 .SH DESCRIPTION
9 apt-installed-status determines for installed packages from which apt repository they come.
10 .PP
11 If you use a lot of repositories, it is not always clear which package you installed from which repository. This tool helps you determine that. It can also show you which packages are not in any of your current apt repositories.
12 .PP
13 To determine which repository a package is from, the package name, its version and its architecture are examined.
14 .PP
15 This tool will only work properly if you have installed all pending updates (
16 .B apt-get dist-upgrade
17 should show no pending packages).
18 .SH OPTIONS
19 Without options, a list of all installed packages is displayed with the archives they are found in.
