I have Tumbleweed installed on four PC’s: my laptop, my wife’s desktop, and two old PC’s (1 laptop, 1 desktop) that I keep updated for eventual give-away to needy individuals. For many months updating all four has been a breeze.
My update process, via Yakuake, is pretty simple…
sudo zypper ref
sudo zypper lu
sudo zypper up
Three of the systems went through the Plasma 5.10.2 update process fine, but my wife’s didn’t - it’s stuck on 5.10.1, seemingly with issues revolving around gcc7. Trying to piecemeal rectify this is likely beyond my non-mastery of all things Linux/Tumbleweed, and part of the problem may relate to this being a Kubuntu machine a few years back. /home was not erased, and perhaps some lingering crud is responsible.
Short of doing a fresh install, is there some simple set of commands that would set things straight and enable me to get the offending PC up to snuff with Plasma?
> Guess I have to bite the bullet: do a fresh install with a current snapshot on all systems, and then use ‘dup’ for all future updates.
you mean the no-allow-vendor-change causes lots of (too many) dialogues? [question] why not e.g. just do a straight dup, then straighten out other packages e.g. dup --from packman, then use the dup --no-allow-vendor-change for future updates?
