    Default ZMD: No software updates available / Why?

    Since 2 weeks, my Novell Software Updater does NOT indicate any available update? I think the message/info is wrong as I receive a few notifications from Novell about new patches available.

    Unfortunately nothing occured on my system. My account is active at Novell, so I should be able to download/install patches with no problem.

    But on my Suse console, the icon in the task bar is still on "No software updates available" (see http://spip.vector.ch/novell-update.gif)

    What should I do in order to get the software updater working again?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Recommend

    - Inspect YAST Online Update configuration
    - Verify Online Repositories updated
    - Verify a good network connection, eg ping your online repositories.
    - Are you behind a firewall, particularly a Proxy firewall? A Proxy firewall is more problematic than other firewalls, I've had problems passing proper credentials to the Proxy despite SuSE improvements (you can search the Forum for Proxy HTTP connectivity)

    similar problems....


    Also several times have restarted and ended up with a blank screen or something else not working right.


    Now suspect given several issues reappearing after thought resolved may be a good time to just reformat and rerun the entire installation...


    Bugs followed after during my installation yesterday thought one power off was a restart, now suspect may have been a quickie power interruption...

    Hi,

    maybe you should contact novell or use the SLED forum because here mainly opensuse is discussed.

    Hope this helps
