Re: UM no longer works after being updated to 3.1.1

Don't know if something was fixed by Solyd team in the meantime, but after re-applying one more time the apt commands mentioned in my previous post and rebooting, the UM now behaves as expected without error.

This issue therefore appears to be fixed.

Thanks!

[Solved] UM no longer works after being updated to 3.1.1

I applied the following commands as suggested: apt update apt purge updatemanager apt install updatemanager I then rebooted, but the UM icon did not appear in the SysTray. Started manual...

UM no longer works after being updated to 3.1.1

This morning I was first offered an update of the UM to v3.1.1. After being updated, it proceeded to the usual update process but then an error occurred. Unfortunately, I did not take note of the error message and after clicking OK, the UM closed. I then tried to start the UM manually using the comm...

<Solved> LibreOffice updates not really updating ?

Yesterday the Update Manager (UM) proposed a series of updates of LibreOffice (LO). I thought that these would really update LO to a more recent version (e.g., 5.x.y), but it was unfortunately not the case. LO is still v4.3.3 and has been so for a longtime despite several supposed updates performed ...

Re: solydxk-system 2.6.2 update error - new problem after fi

Zill: I dowloaded the nightly build of 2015/03/16 and installed it in my VM. The installation was performed without problem. This was the easy part. Now the more time consuming part is the customization and installation of additional programs I was using. Not always easy to remember all the details....

Re: solydxk-system 2.6.2 update error - new problem after fi

Schoelje: I am not really sure what exactly happened, but until the error I reported in my first post, all the updates using the Update Manager were carried out without any problem on a regular basis. So I don't know how I could have missed the changes you mentioned. Just to clarify, I am not sure a...

Zill: There is no available option when clicking the down pointing arrow. No choice possible!
Not sure why Schoelje asked me to purge kdm since I was using the kde.

Schoelje: Not quite what I expected!
I executed your commands and then rebooted. The login screen is now completely different than what it used to be (see attachment) and when I do login, there is no GUI, just the CLI.

After the update of the UM from version 2.4.1 to version 2.4.3, the packages Current version and New version are now different, with the New version number being higher than the Current version, as should be expected.

<SOLVED> UM shows Current version and New version the same

Not sure if this was ever reported, did not find it in the forum. The UM always reports the same version number for the package being updated between the Current and the New. Of course, after the upgrade the versions are different, as expected, otherwise what is the purpose of the update! To illustr...
