Thread: Opensuse 12.1 Update issue

    Default Opensuse 12.1 Update issue

    Hi,

    I got an update notification. When I opened Apper, it had an updae for software management. But when I try and install the update I get the following error message :"The package libzypp is essential to correct operation and cannot be removed using this tool".

    Now i see that Apper notification sits in my taskbar and due to this Yast doesnt launch as it says "Packagekit" is running.

    Is there a way to install this update or remove it from the list of updaes?

    Thanks,
    Prad

    Don't use Apper

    Configure it not to check for updates

    Use your terminal and run this

    Code:
    su -
    zypper patch
    When it's done, run it again
    and then
    Code:
    zypper up

    I haven't seen that, because I disable Apper.

    I would call that a bug. It should be reported to the bugzilla.

    To solve your immediate problem - if you are using KDE, then you can disable apper startup. Go into "Personal Settings" --> "Startup and Shutdown" --> "Service Manager". In the bottom window, uncheck "Apper Monitor". Then logout and log back in, and apper should not be running. I'm not a Gnome user, but there's probably also a way to disable apper startup in Gnome.

    With apper not running, yast online updates should handle things. In my case, it showed a bunch of updates, with only the zypper update checked. I told it to continue. It installed that update. Then it showed me the rest of the updates, which I then installed.

    My personal way of handling updates: I disabled apper startup, as described above. I periodically run yast online update (typically around twice a week). Then I manually start apper (from the KDE menus) to check for other updates, since most of the packman updates don't show up with yast online update. An alternative for those other updates is to run "zypper up" from a root command line.

    I agree with the other responders, in that I don't like apper and find running it automatically will cause more problems than it solves.

    Still stuck with the same thing.

    I tried installing the missing libzypp file but it seems there is a newer version on my system.

    So basically zypper/apper are trying to update libzypp(libzypp-10.3.5-1.7.1.x86_64.rpm) but the new version is causing problems(libzypp-10.3.7-1.9.4.x86_64.rpm).

    Is there a way to remove the higher version and install the lower version so that my updaes go through?

    please show us the terminal input/output from

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    copy/paste the in/output back to this thread using the instructions

    > So basically zypper/apper are trying to update


    you have been told three times in this thread to not use apper, it is
    broken....so, how can it be trying to do anything?

    disable apper....i can only guess how to do that: try right clicking on
    the icon and from the popup menu which results see if there is not
    something where you can allow, disallow or select:

    -updates
    -notifications of pending update
    -startup at boot
    -shutdown

    following that run these commands

    Code:
    su -
    rpmdb --rebuilddb
    zypper clean --all
    zypper ref
    zypper patch

    first, lets see what happens once apper is out of the picture (for sure
    and for good) and the rpm database has been rebuilt..

    so, let us hear how it goes....and, be patient that rpm rebuild may take
    some time....give it plenty

    First: remove apper. I don't want to hear any problems about it, because
    you are not using it, understood?

    Then. The current version is indeed libzypp-10.3.7-1.9.4.x86_64, so I have
    to wonder what repos you have active that it wants to downgrade.

    So show us the list of repos, as Denver said.
