    Default Updater issue

    Hi,

    I'm using OpenSuse 10.3

    I am told daily by the updater that "New Software for your system is available". It also ALWAYS says:
    "x install 2 recommended updates additionally"

    These 2 additional updates are always present, and never seem to actually install. This means my system is *always* telling me new software is available.

    Any ideas how I can clear these?

    Many thanks
    Christian

    Hi
    Try it from the CLI then (console/konsole);
    Code:
    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper lu
    sudo zypper up
    The first command refreshes the repositories, the second lists any
    updates, the third will apply the updates.

    If that doesn't work a read here;
    Package
    Manager Cleanup


    Note the script has an error, the correct one is here;
    SDB:Speed
    up Package Manager Stack - openSUSE
