    Default Updates - what am I missing?

    I never seem to get any updates to openSUSE 11, the ones I do get are usually just "uninteresting" ones like updates to language packs and stuff like that!

    I try three ways of updating, first I try the konsole method with zypper refresh, then zypper up - nothing shows up.

    I run the desktop update applet tool thingo, it searches online and then reports - no updates available.

    Then I try the GUI method and first refresh the repositories through Yast2 (I have them all set to manual update) and then run Online Update from the Yast2 control centre - again, no updates are shown.

    However, when I browse through there and change the filter to all patches, I see several packages where the versions are highlighted in blue (which I believe means that an update IS available), but they never get selected to be updated.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks .

    Index of /distribution/11.1/repo/oss/suse/x86_64

    Shows a whole load of files from 2008/12/03 and 2008/12/09 which are pre-release.

    Presumably someone was daft enough to let the Novell/SuSE engineers have a christmas break, after 11.1 was shipped.

    your command is my pleasure:

    Code:
    my-laptop:/home/me # zypper ls
    Unknown command 'ls'
    Type 'zypper help' to get a list of global options and commands
    .

    ....hope that clears it up

    no i meant zypper ls to be run as normal user almost the same as zypper lr except that you also get the type

    growbag,
    You only get updates for installed software. If there is no update for you installed software, there is nothing to do for the updater.
    Lately, the only updates have been security related.
