11.3 M6 Gnome: Online update failure


It seems Online Update or Software Management, via Yast, does not work yet. Every time I access these sections, I got the following error message:

“Accessing the Software Management failed. System management is locked by application with pid4082 (/usr/sbin/packagekitd). Close application before trying again. Abort? Retry?”

Any suggestions?

There no updates in Milestone versions, you have to add the Factory repos and manage things Via Software Management

These repos

Index of /factory/repo/oss

Index of /factory/repo/non-oss

Kill the packagekit process or wait until it’s finished and try again.
I normally disable the auto check. Go into Control Center -> System ->
Startup Applications and in the list remove the check, I also disable
things like the remote access, shares etc. Logout/login.

OK. It makes sense that there’s no update service for Milestone versions. I guess I will wait until the final version.
