Why are the dbgsym packages listed? They didn’t use to be, and it makes the list less readable in my view…

I have a post-processing script that I use to remove them. I forgot to give that to @sloretz, who was nice enough to do the sync while I was on vacation. It will be fixed in the next sync.

ros-melodic-diagnostic-updater 1.9.7 is borked, and I would like to get an older, working version.

This page tells me there is a ros-melodic-diagnostic-updater 1.9.5-1, but does not tell me where it is. The links lead nowhere :frowning:

Can you please add a link to where the files can be downloaded?

Can you explain more about which links lead nowhere? The ones in the message above do link to the wiki page for diagnostics, which is the main source for it.

To answer your more general question, you need to use the ROS snapshot repository to get older packages. But I will also suggest opening an issue on the relevant repository ( to get the particular issue you are having fixed.
