Thread: YaST and Thunderbird do not work after repository refresh

  1. #1

    Default YaST and Thunderbird do not work after repository refresh

    Hello,
    I did a repository refresh and zypper dup after facing issues with KDE plasma (not accessible). KDE works now, but I have troubles with YaST and Thunderbird:
    YaST. can be started, but no application underneath (e.g. software install, user admin, ...) starts, no error message
    Thunderbird throws an error: "Thunderbird had a problem and crashed"
    All repsository were refreshed with one exception:
    [http-download.opensuse.org-e737cf79|http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Factory:/ARM/standard/] Valid metadata not found at specified URL
    The URL provided for ARM is not valid (anymore?).
    Regards,
    Matthias

    Why a
    Code:
    zypper dup
    Depending on the repos you have, it will be now unclear which packages are installed from which repo because dup will ignore vendor stickyness.

    During the life time of a stable release (like Leap 42.1) you do :
    • zypper patch to install patches from the Update repos (same as YaST > Software > Online update);
    • zypper up to get newer vesions of packages from other repos you have (like Packman) keeping to the same Vendor (repo) (and zypper up will include zypper patch);
    • zypper dup when you want to change Vendor (e.g. zypper dup --from packman when you want to "switch to Packman").

    Zypper dup is also used when upgrading to a new openSUSE version.
    Zypper dup is also used with Tumbleweed for actions that can be explained by Tumblewed users.

    When you want help in correcting your repo usage, please post
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    And, I see you are new here. Welcome!
    Something that is not obvious for new members:
    Please in the future use CODE tags around copied/pasted computer text in a post. It is the # button in the tool bar of the post editor. When applicable copy/paste complete, that is including the prompt, the command, the output and the next prompt.

    Hello Henk,
    many thanks for your swift repy. Do you see any chance to go back to the status quo ante? I.e. is there a chance to identify the original vendors and then update from them?
    Regards,
    Matthias

    As I said, when you want help in redressing things, post
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    IMHO, as long as you do not post that, almost nobody can give you precise suggestions.

    BTW, Why do you mention explicit in your first post that you "refreshed your repos? The zypper dup you did will do that automaticaly. Except when you have switched refreshing off. In any case, we will see if you switched it off if you post the repo listing.

    Why do you have the ARM repo. That is for ARM processors NOT Intel/AMD. It is a wonder anything works

    Hello,
    the ARM was repository was configured by default (ie from the vendor as far as I can see). However the related URL does not work anyway.

    Also factory mixed with 42?? this is very bad. Factory is more or less tumbleweed. Remove all repos that have arm and or factory also 11 which is the install media then do a zypper dup.

    Do you really need the kernel repo? Do you use a special kernel?

    Where did you get the system? From your remarks you did not configure this yourself and it certainly is not standard

    Same here.

    And please I asked you two questions earlier, you did NOT answer. That does not realy help to speed up finding a solution. They were:
    in post #2
    Why a zypper dup
    and in post #4
    BTW, Why do you mention explicit in your first post that you "refreshed your repos? The zypper dup you did will do that automaticaly. Except when you have switched refreshing off. In any case, we will see if you switched it off if you post the repo listing.
    I now see in your repo list that automatic refreshing is on. Thus why that mentioning of "I did a repositoty refresh ...."

    I ask these things because I get a strong idead that you have some misconceptions about repository and software management. Getting an idea about why you did things may help in informing you about how things are supposed to function.

    Hello Henk,
    sorry for not answering earlier and many thanks for your support.
    Regarding your earlier questions: I found the recommendation to use "zypper refresh" and "zypper dup" in another forum and used it without carefully reading what these commands actually do. And you are right when talking about "misconceptions about repository and software management". Actually I am learning this now ...

    Matthias
