Many of the Raspbian packages available are old and I want to update some of the software I use to the latest version. I would like to setup a local repository so my other RPi's can all pull from the same place. So how can I build packages and host a local repository? I don't want to just compile/install source code, I want to use the apt-get package manager install/uninstall things neatly.

    Here's how to build packages : debian.org/doc/manuals/maint-guide/build.en.html and how to create a local apt repository : askubuntu.com/questions/170348/… Hope it helps. – dhruvvyas90 Sep 25 '15 at 6:27

    This is off-topic here since it is a general Debian question (Raspbian is a Debian variant, and uses the Debian package management system). It would be on topic at Unix & Linux, but I will not migrate it there directly as it would simply be a duplicate of questions such as this one. Sort of -- technically that is a question about a detail of the process, since there is already copious documentation of the process online. I suggest you read some of that and if you are confused, ask a more specific question at U&L. – goldilocks Sep 25 '15 at 11:39
