Jean-Baptiste Lallement (jibel) wrote : Call germinate with -updates too

In auto/config germinate is called with the release pocket only:
 (cd config/germinate-output && germinate --no-rdepends --no-installer \
                -S $SEEDMIRROR -m $MIRROR -d $SUITE -s $SEED \
                ${COMPONENTS:+-c "$COMPONENTS"} -a $ARCH)

In LTSes some packages are in universe in the release pocket and in main in the update pocket.

For example in focal:

$ rmadison -s focal,focal-updates realmd adcli
 realmd | 0.16.3-3 | focal/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, ppc64el, riscv64, s390x
 realmd | 0.16.3-3 | focal-updates | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, riscv64, s390x
 adcli | 0.9.0-1 | focal/universe | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, ppc64el, riscv64, s390x
 adcli | 0.9.0-1 | focal-updates | i386
 adcli | 0.9.0-1ubuntu0.20.04.1 | focal-updates | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, ppc64el, riscv64, s390x

When these packages are seeded but they have no reverse dependencies, for instances seeded in the live seed and only main and restricted are considered (for Ubuntu) then these packages are ignored (unknown) by germinate and not added to the live session.
