Yunohost package marked as kept on hold in apt

My YunoHost server

Hardware: VPS bought online
YunoHost version: 4.0.3
I have access to my server : Through SSH
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

Description of my issue

Running apt-get dist-upgrade does not update yunohost, because it is being “kept back”.

$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
admin@yuno:~$ apt-mark showhold

Should I leave it on hold or can I safely unhold it?

Preferably you should upgrade your server with

yunohost tools upgrade --system

(Or through the webadmin)

Some packages are indeed marked as held which is a result of a minor bug (packages are not unheld in some cases at the end of system upgrades), though you could manually unhold them, but anyway yunohost will take care of it if you use yunohost’s commands
