Thread: OpenSUSE Updater going utterly mad !

    Thumbs down OpenSUSE Updater going utterly mad !

    Hello. Does anybody understand the following ?

    0. When I login, the pending update icon on the bottom bar is orange. When I click it, I get a pop-up windows that say "No update available". The icon then goes to green.

    1. About five seconds later, that icon turns red. When I click it, a popup window now says that 2 security updates and 4 additional recommended updates are available. Details cups 322 (twice) fileshareset 124 (twice) kdenetwork3-Instantmessenger 235 (twice).

    2. I click "Install". The system asks me my password, which type. The icon turns then green on a red background. Five seconds later, it turns red on a green background. And then the system gets back to step 1, stuck in what seems to be an infinite loop.

    Does anybody know how to force back OpenSUSEUpdater to some kind of normal behaviour ?

    Try doing an update in Yast --> Software --> Online Update. If that works, the crazy behaviour should moderate.

    Thumbs up Re: OpenSUSE Updater going utterly mad !

    Actually if you use Yast->Software->Online Update as swerdna correctly says, you will see that there are some dependency problems that you have to resolve first. That is the reason for the updater not to install the new software and keep informing you!!!. The problem is that if you decide to keep the current software without resolving the rest of the dependencies there is no way to tell the openSuSE Updater not to check for these unwanted software updates anymore. In my computer it keeps informing me about fileshareset and kdenetwork3-InstantMessenger. These updates conflict with a lot of installed packets that need to be uninstalled or downgraded, actions that I don't want it to perform. So I just leave it this way, knowing that in the future there will be some updates of these packets that will put up with the rest of the installed software.
