ansible.builtin.dpkg_selections – Dpkg package selection selections

Note

This module is part of ansible-core and included in all Ansible installations. In most cases, you can use the short module name dpkg_selections even without specifying the collections: keyword. However, we recommend you use the FQCN for easy linking to the module documentation and to avoid conflicting with other collections that may have the same module name.
