The NUT package is also automatically removed under similar circumstances.

I can confirm this behavior with NUT and FRR as well. Users who rely on FRR but aren't ready to update have experienced outages from changing their update branch to previous stable in order to install new packages on 2.4.5p1.

  • Subject changed from FRR package removed to Packages unexpectedly removed when changing update branches

Generalizing subject since it can happen with multiple packages
