neptune.pref
Hello,

I do not quite understand what is happening in my system.

I enabled the debian backports repository and the multimedia repository and now the system seems to want to update everything from the backports and multimedia repo. For some reason the neptune.pref file has backports priority set higher than the actual main repos like this:

Code:
Package: *
Pin: release o=Neptune
Pin-Priority: 777

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 600

Package: *
Pin: release a=buster-backports
Pin-Priority: 555

Package: *
Pin: release a=buster
Pin-Priority: 500

Is this how it should look like?

Thanks,
Debster

RE: neptune.pref
This is a leftover of previous versions of Neptune. Feel free to adjust this file if you don't like the default behavior to upgrade to packages from backports.

What is your opinion, will my current apt-pinning setup cause breakage eventually?

The current setup shouldn't cause breakage.
If you don't want backport packages to be installed automatically it could in the future mean you need to manually upgrade a package from backports.
