    Ohh nvm i got it to work

    I just had added an external repository and i didn't trust its GPG key so the software update stopped in the middle. After I deleted that repo using Yast all is going well.


    Thanks!

    A reamek.

    Please next time use https://susepaste.org/ for images. Not everybody trusts those external sites that want to run scripts.

    Also you did not explain at all what you did except the unspecified term :"software update". You are running Tumbleweed, That can only be updated trustworthy with
    Code:
    zypper dup

    Ohh sorry . I though Imgur was a trusted site.

    It was the software auto update thing that automatically gives update notifications . I didnt run any manual command

    So do you manually run software update everyday?


    SusePaste only accepts text/code but i want to upload an image , hence im using imgur


    Here is the image of what the auto-update looks like : https://i.imgur.com/F6rwj6c.png

    No.
    First I do not run Tumbleweed, but you can see every new Tumbleweed snapshot announced in the News & Announcements section of the forums (e.g. https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...27#post3066027). I have an RSS feed on it.

    I run Leap, but I only, once a week, have a fixed "maintenance window" (my users know this) and then install patches/updates (and do several other maintenance tasks).
    Thus I do not burden my users with a "software auto update thing". That is not something they have to worry about. Nor would I ever do an "automatic" (thus on the worst immaginable point in time) update (that may include a reboot).

    That is not true. At the top-right there is a clickable switch: Image Code. And btw set Delete after to Never. Post the URL of the page, not the one of the image.

    It doesn't auto update , sorry i worded it wrong . It automatically checks for updates and gives a notification if there is an update .
