Thread: Yast broken?

  1. #1

    Default Yast broken?

    openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64) 64-bit on Tosh laptop

    first, I may not have YOU set up from the original install, so the instruction on the autoupdate was attempted by looking into repositories.

    second, I think I updated one where numerous "up arrows indicated" not sure what got updated, but I could not find the necessary changes.

    after the update Yast would no longer come up; did several warm and cold reboots...no luck

    (I think I did get the bash update done using zypper)

    here's some notes:

    problem trying to setup YOU (must have been installed w/ off)
    tried to follow instructions for manual YOU setup; had repository list and few upgrades (clicked dwnload arrows )

    YAST now will not start (can get admin settings but nothing runs); software mngt; reposit.; system restore; etc / just spins and nothing opens

    from "All Settings" can choose "Details" where an Update tab is seen; update indicates 3409 updates at 3.7Gbyte; running fails

    here's msg on fail: libpurple-2.10.9-4.18.1.x86_64 requires openssl-certs, but this requirement cannot be provided

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    any help would be appreciated:
    1. want to get Yast running again
    2. want to get the system to routinely keep up with updates; should YOU be setup? How?

    computer literate, but Linux newbie

    thanks

    If you are able, post your configured repos here
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    From there, others can advise further.

    Having the factory repo is bound to be causing issues with inconsistency here, so start by removing or disabling that repo... and if you don't need the install CD repo, I'd remove them (you have two for some reason).

    Then let's see if the following can get you out of your predicament...
    Code:
    zypper ve

    Okay, I assume you have now removed/disabled the factory repo?

    Then try
    Code:
    zypper clean
    Code:
    zypper up --from repo-update

    Unhappy Re: Yast broken?

    not yet, regarding repo removals....don't know where or how to edit this.

    BTW the icon interface to the repo in "Admin Tools" (as all tools) "just spins" when I double click.
    So I cannot access it from there (if that indeed is where it is done).

    Do it from the CLI eg to remove factory
    Code:
    zypper rr 7

    Default re: up (date)

    well, could not get that previous one to run and ran it with the "up" only so it appears to be doing an update of all the repositories.

    BTW any hints on getting YOU to work on 13.1? the page for this refers to v12.? and looks like it needs to be done "manually".

    Since I've been trained on defective by design, I tend to keep working things alone and I may have chosen to do this manually.

    But with several other installs (even RSS owl which I never installed but downloaded from repository) it may be getting complex.

    What's the best way to handle this?

    That's what got me in trouble as I could not find the analogous page on my Yast.

    btw it's still going after 5 min; here's the header

    The following 2 package updates will NOT be installed:
    libmtp9 libpurple

    The following 14 NEW packages are going to be installed:
    clutter-lang gdk-pixbuf-lang glib-networking-lang gnome-control-center-color java-1_7_0-openjdk-headless
    kernel-desktop-3.11.10-21.1 libquvi libquvi-scripts libwayland-cursor0 libwebkitgtk2-lang libwebkitgtk3-lang luasocket
    totem-pl-parser yast2-inetd-doc

    The following 490 packages are going to be upgraded:
