Thread: In Yast, Online Update, how to select all

    Default In Yast, Online Update, how to select all

    Opensuse 13.1

    We just got back from vacation and i needed to fire up my wife's PC and run an online update.
    We had been gone for 3 weeks so there were quite a few.

    I was looking for something that would let me select "all" but I could not find it, so it was one at a time.

    Is there something like that ?

    thanks
    openSUSE 13.2

    There should be no need to select "all".
    All updates applicable for your system should be selected automatically in YaST->Online Update when you enter it.

    But note, that if there is an update to the software management stack (zypper f.e.), only this is installed.
    That's on purpose, as that update might fix problems that might arise when installing the other updates.

    You do not need to.

    Just accept what it says to update, that's all. What it is not
    automatically selected, it is for some good reason.


    For instance, if there is an update to yast or the zypper libraries,
    this is updated first, with nothing else. Yast gets automatically
    restarted, and this time the rest of the available packages get evaluated.

    Or perhaps it is listing updates for packages that you have not
    installed in which case you can simply ignore those updates. Another
    possibility is to just use "zypper patch" for the online security
    updates followed by "zypper up" for package updates.

    In this case the "zypper patch" is _not_ necessary.
    "zypper up" will install all security updates from the update repo as well.

    I usually do this to update all applications:
    click YAST>software management
    if not already done visualize repositories tab clicking on upper right "view" tab choosing repositories
    in the left window choose @system
    on the right window right click on one package>all in this list>update if newer version available
    click accept in the lower right corner

    ..hope this helps
    ciao :-) pier

    That's what I do.

    You can also do it from "yast online update", and you can do it on a
    single repository, if wanted. For example, you may know that one of the
    repos brings in a huge update that you do not want to do right now... so
    update the rest.

    It means some clicking, but it is easier to see what it is going to do,
    compared to zypper, and then make choices.
