Thread: Too many red packages when updating @System?

  1. #1

    Default Too many red packages when updating @System?

    Hello again.

    After quite a while I just made an update of my system through Yast Software Manager with the usual method.
    When lastly updating packages in @System repo, I noted several packages highlighted red:
    Code:
    guile1
    libguile-srfi-srfi's
    libguile1-devel
    libguile17
    libguilereadline   from  1.8.8-23.1  to  1.8.8-4.5.1
    
    libavresample  1.0-1.3 (no other version)
    
    libavutil51  from  1.0-1.3  to  0.11.1-3.1.2
    
    libgeda  1.7.1-2.6 (no other version)
    Mr. Caf's way is updating just the packages in this repo for which there's a newer version available (i.e. the ones highlighted in blue), but I just wondered why there were too many red packages. For the ones with no other version I guess I could just uninstall them (???); for the other ones, should I just leave them or downgrade them?

    All these red packages are from openSUSE Update repo, and my repos are:

    Check where the red packages came from and check also if there are repositories that are offline/downtime.

    What do you mean? I already mentioned those packages are from openSUSE Updates repository, and the ones marked as "no other version" don't mention what repo they came from at all. In my signature I mention that I use GNOME 3.4.

    Are you sure that libgeda comes from there, and not from the geda suite?

    There could be one or more repo that carry those packages like packman etc.
    Just check the versions in yast, if it is fine then maybe the openSUSE update downgraded some
    of the packages. If you think by comparing the packages are alright then it is your call either to
    accept the downgrade or opt not.

    I guess I'll make myself a bit clearer.

    All the mentioned red packages but the ones marked as "no other version" seem to come from the Updates repo, according to what it showed by selecting the package and clicking the "Versions" button below to see what version were installed/available.

    The "no other version" ones don't mention at all what repo they came from, they only show that version number. Libgeda most likely came from Science repo.

    The no mention repo packages can be cause by a deleted or disabled or downtime repo.

    Then it is possible that: the science repo doesn't have it now, or it
    has a lower version.

    Or that you no longer have the science repo active, or any other repo
    that has that package.

    I do have all the mentioned repos active, so Science is as well. So should I delete the "no other version" packages? And how can I decide what to do with the other "downgradable" packages?
