    Default Software Updater

    Hi

    I have been having a recurring issue for a number of weeks now. Everytime Software Update appears it says there are updates so I click update, enter my root password and then I get this error message:

    Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: package postfix-2.6.1-2.1.i586 is not installed
    Now that package is not mentioned on the list for me to untick so I have no idea where it's coming from.

    It happens each time and everytime the updates don't get done. They just stay on the list and new ones keep getting added. The list is getting pritty big now

    I tried that and it removed that error message but simply replaced it with a almost identical one but citing a different package. So I went to Yast again installed the new package error and it just came with another. It's apparently a never ending cycle.

    For the moment I've disabled Yast updates and I'm only installing certain ones via Zypper which seems to work as I can tell it to skip packages that cause errors, although is meaning I only get <50% of the updates.

    Found the problem although still not sure what is causing it. When I installed the system it was a 11.2 install. However when I ran YaST to install a whole load of things it installed the 11.3 versions. For some reason the updater is keep giving those message asking for the 11.2 versions of things. If I go to YaST and downgrade the relevant package to 11.2 then it continues fine. At least for the moment.

    Just to be annoying can I ask what that command is doing. Just for future reference.

    It's posted a list of your repositories.

    Now open a terminal and become su -

    and do this

    Code:
    zypper rr 2
    If you want to be successful with multi-media you will do the following:

    Code:
    zypper rr 1
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/11.2/ packman
    And you will follow this guide

    I did that but it's still giving update errors that I have to do that Yast thing to solve. As for multimedia I always use VLC and Foobar2000(run under wine) which have dealt with all my multimedia needs, although I shall follow the guide just to keep things in order.

    When you think you have changed the repos as shown, please post again

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    Please right click the updater applet and configure not to check for updates and not to start at boot. Then reboot.

    It should be gone.

    Update once a week with

    Code:
    zypper up

    Ok ran those two commands you said. And then I run updater and found out everything it said was wrong so went to Install Software and downgraded all the relevant things but when I went to see if the update would work it still failed saying the same messages and when I went back to Install Software to check my list of downgrades they were all back to the way they were e.g. most recent versions. For the record I get the same errors if I try to update using zypper.

    Here is a full list of all the things it asked to downgrade.
