Can't update Ubuntu Jammy?

I was getting info back from my update script that I have used for many years:
The following packages have been kept back:
gstreamer1.0-pipewire libpipewire-0.3-0 libpipewire-0.3-common
libpipewire-0.3-modules libpq5 libspa-0.2-modules openssh-client
openssh-server openssh-sftp-server pipewire pipewire-bin
python3-software-properties software-properties-common
software-properties-gtk ssh ssh-askpass-gnome

However, this morning I see:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

How can these results be explained?

The references to Debian are because Ubuntu is a downstream child of Debian and use the same package-management system -- apt…and it's backend dpkg.

-- sw

This result means that all of the packages listed were already up to date and did not need to be upgraded. The update script was simply informing you that these packages have been kept at their current version.
