Am I missing somethng? Or is there a problem with Yast ‘Online Update’ GUI/applet in Tumbleweed? I notice that every time I start it, it complains that “no update source was configured” and I will have to click OK it the dialog that opens next.
YaST->Online Update only installs updates from the update repo.
As Tumbleweed is a rolling distribution, you get updates via the main repo instead. (there is an update repo for critical security fixes in emergency cases, but that is empty at the moment)
Use “zypper dup” to keep your system up-to-date, that always was and still is the only supported way to update Tumbleweed.
You can also use YaST->Software Management or the desktop’s updater applet, but the first is rather manual, and the latter cannot cope well (or at all) with package renames/drops and downgrades as can happen in Factory/Tumbleweed.
PS, OOC: What do you need that MariaDB repo for? Shouldn’t the latest mariadb be included in Tumbleweed anyway?

You are missing something: that there are no updates to TW. Not via YOU,
that is. Instead, you have to use, as documented, “zypper dup”.
If you have further questions, please request a moderator to move your
post to the tumbleweed forum.
