In my sources.list quite a lot of sources (experimental, unstable, testing, and debian-multimedia, google chrome, etc.) and I'm somewhat lazy to edit sortlist every time I want to update, for example, Mplayer or Google Crome. Whether the staff (or third party)tools aptitude to perform a "partial upgrade" package list?


PS mana and the Google answer was not given.

In fact, you need to download the files that are in the spirit
\rrepo.wuala.com_dists_stable_main_binary-i386_Packages
repo.wuala.com_dists_stable_Release
repo.wuala.com_dists_stable_Release.gpg
\r

in the folder /var/lib/apt/lists/.
\r
These files are at the locations prescribed in the apt.sources.
They can, in theory, take wget'om addresses
\rrepo.wuala.com/dists/stable/main/binary-i386/Packages
\rrepo.wuala.com/dists/stable/Release
\rrepo.wuala.com/dists/stable/Release.gpg
\r

and put where necessary.
\r
All this in theory can be automated in the bash.

and if you try something like:
\r

I haven't checked it, but as an option
