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XBPS utility to check for outdated packages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The xbps-checkvers utility checks for outdated packages in a target root directory or in all registered repositories by comparing the package versions against the source package versions available in a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 The FILES argument sets extra packages to process with the outdated ones (only processed if missing).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.
--removed
List packages present in repos, but not in distdir. Srcver is a question mark for them.
--debug
Enables extra debugging shown to stderr.
--format format
Format according to the string format, inspired by printf(3).

The following formatting codes may be used:

Newline.
Tab.
NULL.
A plain ‘%’.
The package name.
The package version from repositories or pkgdb (returns ? if not found).
The source package version (returns ? if not found).
The requested template name (this can be a sub package).
The repository url (returns ? if not found).

The default format is “%n %r %s %t %R”.

--help
Show the help message.
--ignore-conf-repos
Ignore repositories defined in configuration files. Only repositories specified in the command line via --repository will be used.
--installed
Check for outdated installed packages rather than in repositories.
--manual
Only process listed files.
--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-all
List all packages found in the void-packages tree and prints version available in repository and srcpkgs with the following format: pkgname repover srcver. If any version can't be resolved, ? is printed instead.
--version
Show the version information.

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