Thread: Dozens of conflicts with Yast Software manager

  1. #1

    Default Dozens of conflicts with Yast Software manager

    OpenSuse 13.2 on desktop.

    On starting the Yast SW manager, during the initialisation sequence, I have recently started getting a conflict message that I cannot explain
    Code:
    nothing provides appdata(firefox.appdata.xml) needed by application:Firefox-.noarch
    
        [x] deinstallation of application:Firefox-.noarch
    
        [ ] break application:Firefox-.noarch by ignoring some of its dependencies
    Also within the SW manager, on selecting Package > All packages > Update if newer version available, since yesterday, I now get a whole set of conflicts (about 24!).
    Code:

    I choose the 'do not install' option in every case.

    Can anyone tell me what has happened? What should I do to recover normal behaviour?

    That's a known "problem". Please search the forums, this already has been discussed a few times.
    To get rid of that conflict message, disable the dependency auto-check in YaST.

    That's not normal. openSUSE 13.2 comes with libvncserver0 (and libavahi-common3 which is also mentioned in your conflicts).

    Apparently you have incompatible or missing repos.
    Please post your list:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Well, you _disabled_ the main repos, so those packages are not found/available:

    Enable them again (in YaST->Software Repositories e.g.), and your conflicts should disappear.

    You may disable "Auto-Refresh" for those 2 repos though, those repos don't change at all.

    aaah...now it works! Wolfi323, you are a hero!

    I must have ditched some packages I thought I didn't need when I abandoned KDE.

    Many thanks.

    By the way, switching off the Yast repository auto-check does NOT solved the 'Firefox-.noarch' inconsistency problem

    Hm? What "repository auto-check" did you switch off?
    I wrote "dependency auto-check".
    In case it wasn't clear, I meant the option "Autocheck" in the "Dependencies" menu in YaST->Software Management's menu bar.

    This does not solve the inconsistency of course, but it prevents the conflict message from being shown all the time.

    The only "solution" to the problem for now is to uninstall Firefox, but other packages are affected as well.

    Yes, I understood your point, the Yast Dependencies > Autocheck.

    I notice that that recommendation had been made in the other post (https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...x-appdata-xml), but the user had not tried it. He reinstalled OpenSuse and the problem went away!

    Hm, I never saw that dialog on any of my systems, so I'd say it should not appear with the default settings (which implies of course that a fresh re-installation would help). I do see the "conflict" when I run "zypper ve" though.
    Although I noticed now that I do have Dependencies->Autocheck turned ON, so this can't really be the cause. (no idea why I thought it was off...)

    Did you ever try to choose "break application:Firefox-.noarch by ignoring some of its dependencies"? It's irrelevant anyway, appdata is just some additional information about the package/software which is only shown by "gnome-software" at the moment AFAIK. And the Firefox package does contain appdata, the package just doesn't specify that it provides it.

    You could also check whether you have libzypp-plugin-appdata installed and remove it if you have (as I suggested already in a different thread in November). Maybe this plays a part here, but I don't know.

    Breaking the dependeicies doesn't make any difference to the Autocheck. It still comes up next time on starting Yast.

    I deinstalled libzypp-plugin-appdata and it raised an inconsistency, suggesting that I also deinstall gnome-software, which I also did. No effect on the 'firefox' inconsistency though.

    Hm. Just one question: do you actually have Firefox installed?
    The dialog might be triggered because Firefox is selected for installation automatically. Try to disable "Ignore recommended packages for already installed packages" in "Options".
