Thread: Sofware update keeps updating daily despite different settings (weekly and monthly not working)

  1. #1

    Default Sofware update keeps updating daily despite different settings (weekly and monthly not working)

    Being mostly annoyed by software update popping up at any login, I tried many times to set it weekly or monthly, but it ever kept updating at any login.

    I only use bash/zypper since I want to do it when I'm not working.

    Using KDE / Plasma?
    do you have an up-to-date installation (have you updated plasma since installing Leap)?
    If I remember correctly, this was a problem in the initial release of Leap / Plasma - but was fixed in subsequent updates.

    I felt the same so always remove PackageKit stuff on a new installation.

    I use YaST/Software-management and select Package - 'all packages' -
    'update if newer version available'. Like you, I like to have updates
    under my control and see exactly what's going to be updated and,
    sometimes, check which repo they're coming from. Can't stand Windoze
    automatic updates which don't even tell you after the event what's
    happened.

    In the system tray settings you can simply turn it off by unchecking it. I'm one of those that check manually as a daily routine using zypper

    ok removed from panel as suggested. My system as understandable is updated daily so I guess I have the latest stuff.

    Maybe related to some permissions issue but I have no time to check being a minor thing.
