    This started yesterday. Repeated today. I don't have time at the moment to upgrade to the bleeding edge (15.1). Now, what?

    It's not a problem for me. I use Yast Online Update and "zypper up" for updating (in Tumbleweed, make that "zypper dup"). And those do not depend on PackageKit.

    I wish the developers would add that suggestion to their error message. It worked, thank you. Somebody has been busy the last few days. A gazillion packages are updating. About to reboot now. Thank you!!

    That is not very specific. When you mean with "gazillion" several hundred, then you have a problem. Probably you have some wrong repo (a Tumbleweed one?). When the reboot succeeds, please post
    Code:

    Momentarily, I will see what effect restarting might have, meanwhile I used the direct invocation of "zypper up" and that worked. For a while. Today, I get some other crash:

    Please use CODE tags, not QUOTE tags around your copied/pasted computer text. It is the button with #, at the right from the QUOTE button.

    OK. I'll try to remember. Anyway, the really ugly quote basically said all my repos (other than Chrome) were, in fact, "leap 15.0" repos. I'd edit the thing, if I could.

    Even if you would be able to edit an old post, that would not work. Information lost by not pasting directly between the CODE tags is lost forever.
    Next time better.

    I read it with some diificulties and your interpretation is correct. Only Leap 15.0.
    In that case I do not understand your Gazillion. And you did specify that more precise (several thousands?)

    Thank you so much for struggling through the hieroglyphics! To me, when the "software updates" tool tells me I have a couple of dozen updates and it scrolls for page after page after page, it's a gazillion. Many 10s, certainly more than a couple dozen. Likely close to a hundred. Next time, I'll count.

    It seems my /var/lib/rpm/Packages file has 3 million lines in it. And the process didn't choke and die today, so it all looks good, but for a warning:
    Code:
     Warning: Repository 'Update Repository (Non-Oss)' appears to be outdated. Consider using a different mirror 
    or server.
    I'm a firm believer in having error message writers say stuff that's useful to people not wired into the context. (Like me.
