    Question Yast / Zypper / Network issues

    I'm new to posting to the forum but have looked here many times for help and learned along the way.
    I've been using OpenSuse since 12.1. Mostly the GUI.

    My system:

    Operating System: openSUSE Leap 15.4
    KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.4
    KDE Frameworks Version: 5.90.0
    Qt Version: 5.15.2
    Kernel Version: 5.14.21-150400.22-default (64-bit)
    Graphics Platform: X11
    Processors: 4 × Intel® Core™ i5-2400S CPU @ 2.50GHz
    Memory: 7.6 GiB of RAM
    Graphics Processor: Mesa DRI Intel® HD Graphics 2000

    Never had problems getting or installing regular updates until the weekend when I received hundreds of updates. Major fixes I thought.
    Since then the Task Manager Software Updates shows "Your system is off line"
    Logged into Yast Admin Settings. Clicking on any icon fails to return results.
    Tried zypper and here are the results:

    jim@localhost:~> sudo zypper

    [sudo] password for root:
    zypper: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libzypp.so.1722: undefined symbol: _ZN4YAML6detail9node_data12empty_scalarB5c
    xx11E
    jim@localhost:~>

    I do regular backups of my home directory and am about ready to reinstall Leap 15.4 but thought I'd pick some brains here and learn something new.

    Jim

    It might be that you have a problem with your repositories. Please post (asw root):
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    As you suggested I get the same results
    Code:
    zypper: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libzypp.so.1722: undefined symbol: _ZN4YAML6detail9node_data12empty_scalarB5c

    Yes, that is really broken somewhere.

    It is very strange that you should have had hundreds of updates when you say you update on a regular base. It looks more like you have wrong repos, maybe added using some 1-click install.

    BTW you do not explain how you do (did) those updates. zypper patch, zypper up or YaST > Software > Online Update, or ....

    To get an idea about your repos without asking zypper:
    Code:
    ls -l /etc/zypp/repos.d/
    and
    Code:
    grep baseurl /etc/zypp/repos.d/*.repo

    I thought it was a lot since i thought I was staying current.

    I have used 1-click in the past when I can't find what I'm looking for in the Yast Software Manger. I avoid the experimental pkgs.

    Updates come from Task Manager Notifications on the desktop and sometimes zypper to make sure I'm current.

    My repos:

    Please use
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    or something similar to show your Repo list with the URL.

    That's one of the problems, all zypper codes I've tried return an error

    Code:
    jim@localhost:~> sudo zypper lr -d 
    [sudo] password for root:  
    zypper: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libzypp.so.1722: undefined symbol: _ZN4YAML6detail9node_data12empty_scalarB5cxx11E

    A few remarks.

    It is not the fact tyhat you install packages from non-standard repos, but the fact that you do so using 1-click that may be worrying. The 1-click tends to add new repos and leave them enabled (also it asks to leave them, but many just click that away). And new repos may have much more software then you need. And that may bork sometimes. So be cautious with 1-click. Better use more clicks/commands, to add a new repo, install what you need an disable that repo. From time to time you may want to enable to see if there is a new version of what you have from it.

    Most people here are not using the KDE applet (i do not even have installed it, nor the software it is based on: Packagekit). At the most for telling them there are updates. But real updating is then only done using YaST/zypper.

    Now the improvised repo list. it is not easy to study it (due to all the longs URLs), but as far as I can see
    Code:
    /etc/zypp/repos.d/http-download.opensuse.org-629a0695.repo:baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.4/repo/oss/
    /etc/zypp/repos.d/repo-debug.repo:baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/debug/distribution/leap/$releasever/repo/oss/
    have the same URL when you replace $releasever in the second with 15.4 (which is done on a 15.4 system). So the first one can be removed.

    Then I see Packman and KDE3. I doubt that KDE3 can be the reason of your problem. All the rest looks normal to me, but I may miss something.

    Maybe a forced install of all zypper might help, but OTOH someone may come with a good idea her, so just wait a bit.
