No updates available

Last time I run openSUSE was 2021-7-26.

Some security updates were released since then: https://lists.opensuse.org/archives/list/security-announce@lists.opensuse.org/

but zypper does not install any of them although I run

zypper clean

and

zypper ref && zypper patch && zypper up

more than 3 times

Do I please need additional commands to make zypper to install updates ?

Yesterday I used YaST > Online Update (which is the equivalent of zyppr patch). There was nothing new since I did the same a week before.

Do I please need additional commands to make zypper to install updates ?

To answer this particular question: No.

To be more specific.

  • you do not really need a zypper ref, because that will be done automatic when the last ref was more then 10 mins (default) ago (and you have utorefresh ‘on’ for the repos, which is default);
  • you do not need a zypper up, when you want to install the patches from the Update repos (and when you do a zypper up, then the zypper patch is superfluous because zypper up will include updates from the Update repos);
  • you say you did this three times, but not how much time between them; doing three times within a few minutes is pure loss of energy.

Well thank you.

Just checked and I see now two patches, one for Mozilla Thunderbird and one for suse-module-tools

Will install them tomorrow with those that might appear in the next 24 hours.
