    Default Calibre

    Hello,
    I use calibre on TW KDE. I have calibre 3.19.
    I saw that in openSUSE software there are calibre 3.20 from 2 days . However I cannot install with zypper. Maybe repositories are not sync?
    Thank you.

    How are you updating your system? (You should be using "zypper dup" at the command line).

    If you try to install with "zypper", do you get conflict messages?

    For almost 24 h I try and now it is working.
    Not only calibre package but 184 packages "openSUSE Tumbleweed 20180320-0 -> 20180324-0'.

    There is another question: Tw not upgrade separate packages only the whole distribution?

    Tumbleweed on my other computer is currently in the middle of that update.

    You can try updating separate packages. The problem, though, is that there are dependencies between different packages. So "zypper" tracks those, and normally won't update something where there is a dependency problem.

    I updated to 20180320 on a different computer, but I don't have "calibre" installed on that one so I can't check whether that updated. On the system currently updating to 20180324, I notice that calibre is being updated. But there are a lot of "texlive" updates on that box, so it will take a while to complete.

    I know that.
    What I want to say is that: calibre 3.20 is from 2 days but I can update it only when was available the whole distribution. I realized that in TW even a package is updated (in repo) it will not be available until the whole distribution is available.

    well no TW is a rolling distribution that means packages change all the time but to keep it working and avoid bugs there are extra checks a new package has to complete before ending up in the main repo the extra repositories are not as restrictive new packages get build as sources become available
    TW updates often and a lot it's basically a new OS every other week

    Thank you.
    Just to add: another factor playing a role in this are the mirrors. Sometimes slower mirrors take ~24 hours to be populated with the new repo content.
