Thread: No Longer Getting Automatic Updates

    Default No Longer Getting Automatic Updates

    Normally everyday I turn on the computer, at the bottom right of the taskbar an update icon shows up and says there are updates available. It stopped doing that about two weeks ago and I think I broke it. I had moved the computer to another room which doesn't have an ethernet jack, so I used my phone on USB-tether for internet connection. I tried to manually update, but it said something like being offline or network unavailable or something, I don't remember. I went to YaST and tried updating there, and it said an online update package needed to be installed, which I did, and then ran the online update configuration, and tried to get updates, but it said none were available. I've moved my computer back to its usual location and it's plugged into ethernet now. Everytime I run the software updates from the taskbar it says system is up to date, but it hasn't gotten any updates for two weeks. I tried removing the online update thing I had installed but it still won't get updates. I want to fix it back like it was but I don't know how. I'm running openSUSE Leap 42.1.

    As openSUSE Leap 42.1 support stopped, it is rather logical there are no new patches anymore. There is even a chance that repos are going off-line one by one.

    Oh I was unaware of this. I didn't realize the version I'm using is old. How do I keep current on when the OS is old and needs to be upgraded? I take it that I need to upgrade the OS at this point. How should I go about that? Just download it and install it or is there a simpler way to upgrade it? Thanks.

    There's a couple of options:
    - Backup /home anyway to an external disk, then
    -- Download and install a new version ( have patience until the 26th and 42.3 is out ), preserving your data
    -- Use the download install medium to upgrade
    -- Change the repos you have configured from 42.1 -> 42.3 and run
    Code:
    zypper dup
    But before moving on I'd like to see your repos. Please open a terminal window and do
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    , use your mouse to select and copy the output and paste it here, between CODE tags, the # in the editor
