After a long time I’m trying to upgrade my Leap 15.0 machine to Leap 15.3 using zypper, following the instructions on the download web pages. So far I have successfully (I hope) upgraded to 15.1 but I’m having difficulty going any further. When I try to download and install Leap 15.2 it tells me “Nothing to do” and stops. It’s also telling me “Permission to access ‘http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Leap_15.1/repodata/repomd.xml’ denied”, which may or not be relevant.
Well, IMHO opinion Packman is not important ATM at all. It would always disable Packman during such an online Upgrade, only to enable it again (and then do the “Vendor Switch”) after my upgrade of the main repos was sucessfully finished.
I am unsure if you are now on a successful course, but I assume you will report back when not. And then please always show what you did: the exact commands at least. There are still so many small diversions and maybe errors to be made. And we can not give any advice when we are not informed.
Thanks Hank. With a correct mirror for Packman Leap 15.2 is now installing, so getting that right was obvious very important.
And I take your point about reporting the details. However, with the reboots what I typed is lost, so I have only the instructions to refer to. Hopefully, as Suse is developed, the procedures will get even more simplified.
I do not think he is already there. He seems now to have a 15.2 (which did not have the new repos) and trying to upgrade online to 15.3 That should automagically add those two new repos. No need to do anything particular, except a zypper up afterwards (because the new repos have many patches).
Hm, a bit difficult to read (because you broke the lines, to small a terminal screen?). But it does not look to bad. Of course you should have disabled those gyazo repos before you started. Do not the instructions tell you to disable all extra repos?
As I told above, I do the same for Packman.
BTW, your repo list does have output, but you did not include the line with the prompt:command. So we have to believe that you did the correct command. We do not believe much, except when it is copied/pasted computer text.
Same for your earlier report about the error you got. What we prefer to see is the complete prompt:command - output - new prompt sequence. All to avoid misunderstandings. All to avoid you forcing your conclusions upon others that want to draw theor own conclusions from the unchanged information.
Due to the above missing of the real output, we can not check what exact URL is mentioned there, let alone try for ourselves. So disable non-standard repos, and redo
For all practical purposes I am the system manager. It’s just that openSUSE has worked so well these past few years that I haven’t been following the changes and many of the technicalities have slipped my mind.
I posted the output from zypper lr -d far too soon. I tried rerunning the upgrade, as I later posted, and that’s appeared to work. However, when I rebooted it failed to start the graphical interface. It tells me “Welcome to openSUSE 15.3” and offers me the command line logon.
Above this is states “Failed to start Load Kernel Modules” twice.
(Incidentally, the output I posted was complete. It just doesn’t fit on the line. I’ve started another thread about this, but I’ll worry about that when I’ve got the system back up and running.)
Users wanting a functioning working environment are their own system manager. They read the documentation which says:
To avoid unexpected errors during the upgrade process using zypper, minimize risky constellations.
Quit as many applications and stop unneeded services as possible and log out all regular users.
Disable third-party repositories before starting the upgrade, or lower the priority of these repositories to make sure packages from the default system repositories will get preference. Enable them again after the upgrade and edit their version string to match the version number of the distribution of the upgraded now running system.
