2.24.31 is the correct GTK+ 2 version used by XFCE in Stretch.
Thanks Stevo! Good to know! I don't need to worry about that one then.

The needrestart package which is throwing the error has been updated in backports. I would try using MXPI to install it from backports to see if it corrects the issue.
Thanks timkb4cq! Great! I kind of realized that these

Code: Select all

Scanning linux images...                                                                                            
Running kernel seems to be up-to-date.
No services need to be restarted.
No containers need to be restarted.
No user sessions are running outdated binaries.
might be related to needrestart, but I couldn't know that it was the cause of the error I was seeing. I will be heading to backport and install from there.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

do you know what package generates these messages:

Code: Select all

Processing triggers for bamfdaemon (0.5.3-2) ...
Rebuilding /usr/share/applications/bamf-2.index...
Processing triggers for man-db (2.7.6.1-2) ...
Processing triggers for gnome-menus (3.13.3-9) ...
Processing triggers for hicolor-icon-theme (0.15-1) ...
Scanning processes...

Running kernel seems to be up-to-date.
No services need to be restarted.
No containers need to be restarted.
No user sessions are running outdated binaries.
also, you gtk version seems too high for debian stretch.
Sorry d_o for my delayed reply!


Thing seems to have sorted out now by following Tim's advice on upgrading needrestart from the backports.
Here is though what I found that I think probably trigger 2 of those other processes:
bamfdaemon < plank
gnome-menus < libremenu

@Everyone

Thank you all so much for looking into this and helping me out with the issue. The system ran nicely but I wondered how come from one day to another that message showed up all of a sudden. Installed a package from main (dictionary) and upgraded firejail to test repo version. No "error" message, all is good!

my appreciations
