nginx installed from nginx PPA on Ubuntu 20.10 (deb [arch=amd64] groovy nginx).

Trying to install nginx javascript module, here is the command and output:

$ sudo apt-get install nginx-module-njs

nginx-module-njs : Depends: nginx-r1.18.0

Anything I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

It seems that nginx from Ubuntu repositories got installed instead.

Can you check:

$ dpkg -l nginx
$ sudo apt install nginx-module-njs nginx=1.18.0-2~groovy

Hello, sorry for the delay.

Yes, you are right.
I guess I could have found out myself, sorry :/ I was assuming that the PPA would automatically take precedence.

Thanks a lot!

No problem at all.

That means we need to document this can happen and provide a workaround, I'll leave this open until then.

I've documented pinning on Debian/Ubuntu repositories so this wont happen again. Please check for instructions.
