I can’t work out what is happening with the current software update process. YaST software management is telling me that the installed kernel 49.3 has been retracted, and 46.1 is available. However, installing 46.1 screws me up totally: no network, my twin displays only mirrored, etc. The Gnome settings manager no longer provides the required configuration possibilities, nor does the system respond to YaST network management configurations (neither Wicked, nor Network Manager)
Fortunately, I can still boot from 49.3. But the update procedure with YaST Software Management reports conflicts wirh maven-lib and maven-resolver (and there is also some issue with the packman repo)
Does anyone know how to clear up this mess? Any recommendations on how to proceed?
Are 49.3 and 46.1 all you have installed? Can you live without Maven working for somewhere between 3 hours and 3 days? According to https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1209436 a replacement for 49.3 is imminent. Run zypper up instead of YaST to see if the reported “issue” is real. You might try removing 46.1 and reinstalling 43.1 if you can’t wait a little longer.
I did everything in yast software.
Firstly - start system withe kernel 46.1, then i add another kernel 41.1 (kernel-default, kernel-default-extra, kernel-default-optional) and checked if everyting works.
Next i remove kernel 49.3 form (kernel-default, kernel-default-extra, kernel-default-optional).
The system boots by default with the latest kernel installed and everything works.
My problem seems to be that 46.1 is somehow broken. In particular, there is no network with 46.1 (not even router access), so installation of another kernel after reversion to 46.1 is not possible. Also 49.1 is no longer my default kernel, which seems to mean that I am unable to install any of the other currently available updates. Did I do something wrong during the original reversion to 46.1 with YaST? How do I make 49.1 my default kernel, if that is at all to be recommended?
Yes, I reverted to 46.3 and that screwed up my system (see earlier posts above), possibly because I combined it with other software updates at the time. I am now running on 49.1 as a read-only boot, since network functions were irrecoverable with 46.3.
