    Question software.opensuse.org

    Hi,

    yesterday, the online update (more than 2000 files) failed (zypper was not able to finish the update, also not after some attempts, and finally I rebooted the computer and I was not able to get to the desktop or konsole anymore).
    Therefore, I made a fresh installation of Tumbleweed which worked fine (interestingly, I had to increase my efi boot partition which worked fine in the past with 156MB).

    Now, I'm confronted with some problems when installing additional software:
    - software.opensuse.org is reacting very slow or not at all
    - I can't find the needed additional software which was not problem in the past (UGENE, Zotero). spotify-easyrpm was only found after finding a direct link using google to the software package in software.opensuse.org (but not when using the search function on software.opensuse.org). Only standard software (firefox, libreoffice) will be shown in a search (and it's a long search before something will be shown).
    - the settings button (for changing distributions...) is only working once
    - in Firefox the most menus were in korean (?). When using Chrome the menus are shown in English or German as it should be.

    What's going wrong with software.opensuse.org???

    Best,

    Michael

    It's a known problem, and it's being worked on AFAIU.

    FYI -
    After a failed zypper dup,
    If you can reboot the machine and login without a Desktop, it's possibly worth a try to run "zypper dup" to see if it will complete the upgrade and restore your machine completely.

    It would still work fine. You just had to ignore the warnings and use the expert partitioner to mount the EFI partition at "/boot/efi".

    Thanks for your additional tips!

    The software download on software.opensuse.org is still a mess.

    You can circumvent these problems when searching and downloading the software packages from: https://build.opensuse.org/

    Here, you can find the different repositories for the packages and also direct download links for the rpms.

    Best,

    Michael
