Question

How can I Identify shipped Packet Versions with UCS Versions?

Answer

You can use the apt-cache command to see what versions are available for what UCS version. See the following example for samba. You will see a line with the version number of Samba followed by a link with the repository of UCS including version number.

In this example we see Samba version 4.6.1 has been initially shipped with UCS 4.2-0.

root@master431:~# apt-cache policy samba
