I upgraded several Icinga-Packages on my debian-stretch server today. However, some packages have been held back and I’m a little concerned that
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade wants to remove some neccessary packages. At least it seems like that to me. There is no mention of reinstalling said packages and I’m wondering if in fact I somehow misconfigured my icinga2 installation.
Keep in mind: The monitoring system is a HA-Setup and otherwise is working fine.

That can’t be safe, can it? Or will everyhing be fine if I (re-)install the missing packages after the upgrade. I’m a bit lost here ¯\(ツ)/¯
