    Default Why is zypper Not installing some updates

    I now have this huge list of files zypper is not going to install. Most of the new ones are perl modules I recently wanted to install but there are others that have been there for months. The code from terminal should be helpful.

    Questions:

    How do I get the perl modules installed that I want?
    How do I get rid of the rest of the list assuming it is not essential to update the apps?

    Code:

    Default AW: Why is zypper Not installing some updates

    It does not surprise me. You have 28 (!) repos enabled. Maybe you've added them by one-click-installs. Do you really need them all? Have you set different priorities for the repos (zypper lr -p)?
    To get rid of a the messages you might run 'zypper dup', but I don't think this is a good idea.

    I could imagine that the perl packages are pulled in by the 'perl_devel' repo (do you really need it?). To get them you can run 'zypper dup --from perl_devel'.

    But I highly recommend to delete some repos.
    zypp it...

    With a repo list like that you are surely heading for a right mess.

    When you apply a switch on a repo such as you would on Packman, even if newer versions are available in other repos, it will not update it beyond anything in Packman.
    If you want the Pearl packages, see which repo the updates you want are in and try using the switcher on it
    Then stand back and wait for the shyt to hit the fan :-)

    What you are seeing is typical behaviour anyway....

    Well, I have been trying to cut down on the amount of repos I use but its hard. It seems like I need more and more all the time.

    Do you really need them all?
    So far, yes. Other wise I would not have enabled them. There seems to be no end of programs and updates that are located outside the "normal" repos. I have a feeling this is why the one-click package website came into being. We are supposed to use it yes?

    zypper dup --
    This is not in the Zypper cheat sheet pdf https://en.opensuse.org/images/1/17/...at-sheet-1.pdf I will check into that, thank you.

    Thanks for the response, I will try to get rid of some repos.

    So I still have the second question.

    That had me cracking up for a good couple minutes... Sorry back to task at hand.

    I feel like I have solid machine, not so much as a hiccup. I love this OS, takes some abuse apparently and keeps on going. Ok so first thing I will do is get rid of most of the repos and just keep packman. Now as to the perl, I don't think I want anything flying my way so maybe I disable that too.

    I guess turning off the repos will get rid of the list, I assume yes and will try it.

    I almost never use one-click. Repos I'm trusting I add with 'zypper ar <repo>'. If I need/want only one or two packages from a repo I copy them (and possible dependencies) to a local repo and install them from there. This gives me more control. I personally would prefer if the one-click-install is marked with a bigger warning about the consequences.

    Ha, that is the top middleish line in the zypper cheat sheet. Never noticed it before now, thanks for the tips.

    Yes. However you can use it wisely. I never subscribe to repos that I already have enabled/disabled (not saying you do). Those I subscribe to (or choose not to), always get disabled/removed, but those disabled are kept if needed for update/installing from soon.

    I know that's a bit KISS, but I rarely have problems with updates or get asked those tedious questions from YaST/zypper about dependency conflicts.

    try

    code:

    zypper in alsa

    to see why it won't update the package.

    try

    ************
    code:

    zypper in alsa

    ************

    to see why it won't update the package.
    Code:
    lee@linux-r5rj:~> sudo zypper in alsaroot's password:

    Reading installed packages...
    'alsa' is already installed.
    There is an update candidate for 'alsa', but it is from different vendor. Use 'zypper install alsa-1.0.26-131.1.x86_64' to install this candidate.

    Nothing to do.
    Ahhh OK, there is two different repos serving up the alsa. So there must be a vendor that is trumping the updated vendor? Are there differing vendor qualities? This is puzzling and not making me feel any smarter.
    I guess there must be some way to pick which version is offered for update.
