bug#44366: 26.2: package-delete not removing all obsolete versions of a package
Sun, 1 Nov 2020 01:38:46 -0500
emacs-version: 26.2 (debian)
NOTE: This is a follow-up to bug report #44306.
When several versions of a package accumulate (in my case, it seems to
have arisen because operations of `package-autoremove' failed in
mid-course), then package-autoremove only deletes the single most recent
obsolete version of the package. For example, in examining my *Messages*
buffer, I see that one run of the function reported
Package `popup-20200610.317' deleted.
A next run of the function reported
Package `popup-20200531.742' deleted.
Finally, the most recent run of the function reported:
Package `popup-0.5.8' is a system package, not deleting
My expectation is that all obsolete versions of a package should be
removed on the first run of the function.
