Julia-client pinned version


I am using JuliaPro and the Settings says that some packages like julia-client and ink are not being checked for updates.
If I type Pkg.free(“julia-client”), I get an error

The following package names could not be resolved:
 * julia-client (not found in project or manifest)
Please specify by known `name=uuid`.

julia-client and ink are packages of Atom, not of Julia, so they can’t be managed by Pkg. This may be something in your configuration of Atom - perhaps a “no-updates” configuration set by JuliaPro, in order to make the user experience more stable.

That’s precisely what’s going on. Please don’t try to work around that unless you know precisely what you’re doing. If you need more frequent updates then consider switching to open-source Juno (but be aware that you’ll have a less stable experience, probably).
