I have a problem regarding Discover/ KDE update applet of OpenSUSE.
After I updated my system, it shows me that I have 400+ updates available, but when I click on install, it just does nothing.
When no update was available at all, that doesn’t happen. Also, after a reboot the 421 updates are gone and it shows me that my system is up-to-date.
Interestingly is though that the YaST software manager doesn’t show me the updates when checking for them, so there seems to be a problem with Discover.
Is there any way to fix it?
Did I configure it wrong?
Yeah, OK, thank you.
But I’d like to be able to update it using a graphical interface since my parents are also thinking about switching to OpenSUSE, but the terminal is a real bumper.
Also, using zypper dup, I can’t update flatpaks, which would be great.
As long as KDE frontend is based on PackageKit, it should be OK in TW as well. PackageKit knows to use “dup” on TW since quite some time. I update TW using GNOME Software application without any issues. Initially I did check with “zypper dup” whether something was missing but now I am pretty confident it works correctly.
Did that a few weeks ago. Using the “change the repo URLs and then zypper dup” method.
Took me less that half an hour, most of the time reading a book and glancing at the screen now and then.
In fact I assume it is not much more effort then a TW snapshot.
Please take into account that I have fiber to the home (thus a slower connection may require you to read more pages of the book) and only Packman (to which I did a separate " change repo URL and zupper dup to it") as an extra repo.
Believe me it is wrong. TW gets released over and over again, needs zypper dup as per documentation. F.e. downgrades are not handled by YaST, nor zypper up. Using those will definitely lead to trouble some day.
