Thread: Update applet - reports updates available then says none ava

  1. #1

    Default Update applet - reports updates available then says none ava

    Using 11.2 with KDE - the Updater Applet automatically pops up, says updates are available; clicking details shows ~4 items, clicking install starts the applet, then after a few minutes it reports No Updates Available. (Net connection is good; no problems with any other d/l's). Would appreciate advice.

    Hi
    If you open a konsole and try using zypper to see if that helps;
    Code:
    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper lu
    If your happy with the list of updates, then;
    Code:
    sudo zypper up

    Malcolm, thanks for the reply.

    "sudo zypper ref" reported that the repositories were up to date and "sudo zupper lu" found no updates. (Output below.) Does that mean that the Updater Applet was in error reporting that updates were avaialable?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi
    OK, if the updater is still showing updates. Can You use YaST ->
    Software -> Online Update.

    If there are none there then on the 'view' tab select repositories and
    select the @system one. Scroll down the list looking for ones that are
    blue, any there?

    I think we're trying to fix the wrong problem here: I noticed it too and would consider this a bug in the KDE updater: it will identify new updates andafter you apply them, the last thing it does it give you a message that "no updates are available", instead of "updates installed successfully". Maybe they mean the same thing in German :-) ?

    Hi,

    I appreciate the help and I'd like to keep working this problem, but unfortunately the laptop was stolen last Monday. No major loss because it was old and had no personal data on it, and I was using it as a testbed for openSUSE. Now that I know that I want to stay with this OS I'll get a more up-to-date laptop in the post-holiday sales.
