xbps-checkvers
XBPS utility to check for outdated packages

xbps-checkvers [
OPTIONS
] [
FILES...
]

The xbps-checkvers utility checks for outdated packages in a target root directory or in all registered repositories by comparing the package versions against the source package versions available in a void-packages tree. By default and unless the -i, --installed option is set, it will compare package versions in repositories against the void-packages tree. The FILES argument sets extra packages to process with the outdated ones (only processed if missing).

 
 
--config dir
Specifies a path to the XBPS configuration directory. If the first character is not '/' then it's a relative path of rootdir.
 
 
--distdir dir
Specifies a full path to the void-packages repository. By default set to ~/void-packages.
 
 
--debug
Enables extra debugging shown to stderr.
 
 
--help
Show the help message.
 
 
--installed
Check for outdated installed packages rather than in repositories.
 
 
--repository=uri
Repository to be added to the top of the list. This option can be specified multiple times.
 
 
--rootdir dir
Specifies a full path for the target root directory.
 
 
--show-missing
Shows missing binary packages comparing against the void-packages tree.

Show the version information.

Probably, but I try to make this not happen. Use it under your own responsibility and enjoy your life.
