Thread: Updates - what am I missing?

    Default Updates - what am I missing?


    I never seem to get any updates to openSUSE 11, the ones I do get are
    usually just "uninteresting" ones like updates to language packs and
    stuff like that!

    I try three ways of updating, first I try the konsole method with*
    -zypper refresh-*, then *-zypper up-* - nothing shows up.

    I run the desktop update applet tool thingo, it searches online and
    then reports - *-no updates available-*.

    Then I try the GUI method and first refresh the repositories through
    Yast2 (I have them all set to manual update) and then run *-Online
    Update-* from the Yast2 control centre - again, no updates are shown.

    However, when I browse through there and change the filter to *-all
    patches-*, I see several packages where the versions are highlighted in
    blue (which I believe means that an update IS available), but they never
    get selected to be updated.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks .

    'Index of /distribution/11.1/repo/oss/suse/x86_64'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...s/suse/x86_64/)

    Shows a whole load of files from 2008/12/03 and 2008/12/09 which are
    pre-release.

    Presumably someone was daft enough to let the Novell/SuSE engineers
    have a christmas break, after 11.1 was shipped.

    your command is my pleasure:


    Code:
    --------------------
    my-laptop:/home/me # zypper ls
    Unknown command 'ls'
    Type 'zypper help' to get a list of global options and commands

    lr except that you also get the type

    growbag,
    You only get updates for installed software. If there is no update for
    you installed software, there is nothing to do for the updater.
    Lately, the only updates have been security related.
