How to install the stable 171 from testing 171 package

I recently switched to ipfire and have been very pleased. Thanks for the hard work.

My initial install was 170 and I switched to the 171 package from the testing branch. All fine except the known logging issue. I wanted to install the stable 171 package but wasn’t able to do via the WUI and haven’t been able to workout how to do it via SSH.

pakfire upgrade --force doesn’t work. Could someone give me pointer on how to switch to the stable version of 171 package? Thanks!

Thanks very much for the quick responses. A quick edit and I’m all set to install 171 from stable.
