Thread: Updates not installing

    Default Updates not installing

    Hi
    I have fresh install of SuSe11.2 64x
    My software updater applet tells me there are about 50 or so updates required.
    I check all and then click install, get prompted for admin password but then nothing happens except the software updater window closes and if I hover my mouse over the applet it tells me it is updating. however hours later and nothing appears to have happened. If I click the updater applet all the selected updates still appear in the update window.
    I have added all the standard repos and have network connectivity.
    I'm a bit baffled here - it worked perfectly fine on my last 11.2 on the same machine.
    Any ideas or info on a way forward to fixing this much appreciated.
    Thanks
    Chris

    aha - many thanks - this did the trick, <zypper up> offered me 8 packages to upgrade to which I said yes. As one was a kernel upgrade I rebooted and the updater applet has now cleared the 50 odd updates that it appeared to be forever installing. Could the problem have been because I originally selected 'not' to install the kernel upgrade when it was first offered by the updater, and subsequent updates listed after that then couldn't be installed?? Or is there some other known reason/bug for the updater to get stuck like this?
    Many thanks again for the fix anyway.
