Thread: Unable to update

  1. #1

    Default Unable to update

    As of a day or two ago I'm unable to update my computer. I haven't changed anything regards to package management, so is there an issue with the update servers?

    I usually update using the software updates widget in KDE, but periodically it just says that there's a problem connecting to a software origin....

    Any thoughts?

    Many thanks in advance

    probobly a mirror issue try doing
    Code:
    zypper up
    anyway you should consider updating as 42.1 will be dead soon (6 months after 42.2 came out) I think that will be april or may

    What's the best way to update? I'm always apprehensive about doing a complete fresh install and potentially messing up my dual boot!! Is it download the DVD and choose the update option?

    here's the output of zypper up:

    File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/deadpoint/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/'


    Thanks again

    On looking at that, it just looks like a repo for a package I installed ages ago has gone. I've deleted it, and it's updating fine now.

    Would like your opinion on the best way to update to 42.2 without the risk of messing up with the boot loader, and losing all my settings etc

    Many thanks!!

    I recently updated one of my laptops from Leap 42.1 to 42.2 with the appropriate repo changes and 'zypper dup' (there are a couple of extra steps if using btrfs to be aware of). It can also be done via install media if preferred.

    that's a user repo and the user decided not to build for 42.1
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...me:/deadpoint/
    only has SLE12, 42.2 and TW repo's (and 13.2 lol)
    you should remove that repo and redo an update
    packages from that repo will not be changed
    tell us your repo list
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    for me the easiest way to do an upgrade is live with zypper dup
    see this
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_u...ng_the_Upgrade
    in a nutshell you change your repo's to point to 42.2 insead of 42.1 (change a number) and then run zypper dup
    take noite that you should disable any 3rd party repo and remove any extra 3rd party driver (I remove nvidia rpm's before doing an upgrade)
    also it's best to run the upgrade in run level 3 ie with no graphical server running
    but that's a different issue

    That's my issue, I'm concerned something will go wrong with my Nvidia drivers, like before. I may just download the latest DVD and see what happens! It's always a good idea to have the OS on a disc anyway, just in case. If I do it this way, will it be likely my Nvidia drivers will screw up? I had all sorts of issues to start with!

    Thanks

    Updated to 42.2. Had a bit of a nightmare because my root partition ran out of space (!!!!) so it had to abort the update....and upon trying to log in, it wouldn't work, so I had to do a fresh install. Luckily this went very smoothly indeed, I kept my old user data....my dual boot bootloader still works fine. I've just spent 30mins, if that, installing various bits of software and codecs etc and all seems to be working well.

    Not sure if I'll notice a great deal of difference between the systems. I didn't think Leap 42.1 was that old, so I'm surprised if what you're saying is true about it being discontinued (in terms of update support) so soon. I thought they usually run 3 versions at once then when a 4th comes out, the 1st gets discontinued?

    Cheers

    is that a bumblebee rig?
    I have a desktop with nvidia 240 and I did live upgrades from 13.2 to 42.1 then to 42.2
    I had no problems, I did remove the nvidia driver and the nvidia repo before doing an upgrade
    I only had the OSS, non-OSS, the update-OSS and update-non-OSS repo's active
    after the upgrade I re-added the nvidia repo and installed the driver
    I had zero issues the upgrade took about half an hour it depends on your local mirror speed and how many packages you have installed
