Tumbleweed updates

I take it this is the result of the repo’s being down today? Looks like maybe we need to wait for things to sync up again.

zypper dup results in the following.

1 package to upgrade, 1311 to downgrade, 38 new, 5 to remove, 10 to change arch.
Overall download size: 1.44 GiB. Already cached: 0 B. After the operation, additional 923.6 MiB will be used.

You rave chosen a misleading title – “updates”.

The problem seems to be with the mirror selection system. If you choose a specific repository upgrades appear to work.
I do not know about Canada, but these are working for me:

# zypper ar -f  "http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/tumbleweed/repo/oss/"  "Tumbleweed--gwdg"

 # zypper ar -f  "http://anorien.csc.warwick.ac.uk/download.opensuse.org/update/tumbleweed/"  "Tumbleweed-Update--warwick"

I am getting weird messages from yesterday
and today I got **Permission to access ‘http://download.opensuse.org/update/tumbleweed/repodata/repomd.xml’ denied.

Nope. /update/tumbleweed/ missing from every mirror I’ve tried this morning. Down for maintenance?

It’s probably not mirrored because it is empty most of the time anyway.
I’d suggest to just disable it for now, and enable it again when things are fixed.

OK, thanks!

See https://status.opensuse.org

Yeah Baby! Fixed now! :slight_smile:

Not completely yet, though most repos should work again by now.
I still can’t reach my home: repo though… lol!

So … was the repo running BTRFS …

Things are looking much better this morning. It still wants to downgrade mesa for some reason, which may be intentional.

The following 12 packages are going to be downgraded:
  libgbm1               17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  libOSMesa8            17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  libOSMesa8-32bit      17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  libvdpau_nouveau      17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  libwayland-egl1       17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  Mesa                  17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  Mesa-dri-nouveau      17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  Mesa-libEGL1          17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  Mesa-libGL1           17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  Mesa-libglapi0        17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  Mesa-libglapi0-32bit  17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1
  Mesa-libva            17.1.6-173.1 -> 17.1.6-172.1

That’s probably related to this:

IOW, the “downgrade” should actually be Mesa 17.1.8, but the package versions are wrong.

I very much doubt that this was the reason.

And if you want to flame btrfs, do so in the Soapbox section if you have to. >:)

Is there still a problem with the repos?

I attempted to update Tumbleweed today and got the following, which is similar to the first post in this thread:

OP had like ~1100 package downgrades. You have 117 “applications” removed (not packages). Not really sure what an “application” means, but it doesn’t seem to be a package.

I would wait… See https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2017-09/msg00326.html


I attempted to update Tumbleweed today and got the following, which is similar to the first post in this thread:

Not really.
The OP had this:

1 package to upgrade, 1311 to downgrade, 38 new, 5 to remove, 10 to change arch.

In your case it’s:

1079 packages to upgrade, 1 to downgrade, 55 new, 1 to reinstall, 9 to remove, 10 to change arch.

The 9 packages to remove are packages that have been dropped from the distribution AFAICS…

And you can ignore the “applications” that are to be removed as already mentioned. In the end only the packages count.
There might still be a problem with the appdata in the repos I suppose, but that should fix itself over time.

And why?

That’s just an explanation why there haven’t been new updates in the last week…

To clarify, a bug/problem was found in testing, and therefore no new snapshots were published since then.
But the bug/problem never actually made it into the repos (because it was detected before the packages were published).

Not seeing any problems in what you listed (which I did not quote).

Yes, there are a large number of applications being removed. But, in my experience, that doesn’t mean anything. I saw something similar in a recent update here, with no problems resulting from the update.

(The large number of applications deleted probably means that there was some reorganization of the “appdata” or whatever it is that defines an application to “zypper”).

And why?

No reason, just seems a prudent thing to wait for the next clean
snapshot before updating and perhaps downloading all the same stuff
again that may only have had a minor version number bump between then
and now…
