Difference between xbian-config and apt

Difference between xbian-config and apt
Hi,

Recently I noticed that sometimes there are no updates available in 'xbain-config' but are available via 'apt upgrade'
I tried looking for an answer for this in the forums\FAQ\github but cannot find it. My apt sources.list is up to date.

Is there any reason for this difference? (perhaps stability?)

RE: Difference between xbian-config and apt
Can you show an example ?
I believe some packages are pinned but dont know how this affects apt upgrade.

There are only 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't

That's right, because xbian-config is using a local package cache file, which is not always up to date (usually it will be actualized once a day)

RE: Difference between xbian-config and apt
For example, yesterday I was running XBian 20171002 and in xbian-config there was no update.
When using apt upgrade XBian 20171110 was available.

Edit:
By the way I ran option 1, 2 and 3 in the xbian-config update section.
