Thread: Update Error: Missing Pkg in Repo?

    Default Update Error: Missing Pkg in Repo?

    I got the following error message when I checked for updates today:
    /suse/setup/descr/appdata-icons-tar.gz/ not found on medium 'http//download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repos/oss/'

    BTW where are these error messages stored? I had to hand copy the error message. Can't mouse over and paste the error message, and when I open Kate to copy the error, the error message closes.

    Hi
    Expected.... there is a scheduled outage and a few hiccups in moving services. Disruptions until next week may occur.

    https://status.opensuse.org/

    Try another refresh, if it doesn't work, go and enjoy the weekend computer free

    It could help when you told what you used to "check for updates".
    That could hint to where the logs are.
    We now only got the impression that you used a GUI tool, because you talk about "the error message closes". But that is only indirect evidence and not conclusive.

    Hi
    Should all be done from the command line for Tumbleweed...no GUI tools..... zypper -vvv dup all the way.

    I use the graphic update icon in the system tray.
    BTW the update completed yesterday, but took a long time since the download was at dial-up modem speed. The GUI update by and large works well, with occasional hiccups. A while back I reported an update that completely broke KDE. So I installed Mate in order to have some sort of a GUI. (I also run Mint 17.3 Mate so I'm comfortable with it.) I did manage to restore KDE using zypper dup though.

    And there is the recurring loss of the boot menu options for other OS's after a kernel update, but I handle that as a matter of routine now.

    Hi
    Again, if your using Tumbleweed, zypper dup is the only recommended/supported method to update, as you alluded to you get breakages, if you used the zypper method it's unlikely to break, or at least give you a clue as to what might break with the -vvv option....

    Don't.

    The problem is that if something should not be used, it should not be available.
    So if Packagekit in Thumbleweed is not used, it should not be installed.
    This is a temptation
    loyalty returns to those who practice it
