On 15 July 2014 we have synchronized the production repositories.
As from this UP, kdenext has been dropped.
To make the upgrade as smooth as possible, we need to downgrade some packages before we can start the upgrade. The Update Manager will handle this for you, but if you wish to use the terminal you need to follow the below mentioned steps carefully.
If the Update Manager does not open with the information page, but with the list of packages, you need to close the Update Manager, and run this command from terminal:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install updatemanager; updatemanager -u
Those who haven’t upgraded from the testing repositories, and depending on whether you’re a SolydX or SolydK user you will have between 500MB and 1GB of packages to download.
You might have a slow download if people upgrade at the same time. Try again at a later date or time.
Mirrors are (now) synchronized.
If you encounter any problems, post your findings in this topic.
Below you find the Update Manager’s UP info page.
For users running BE/BO here is an adapted version of the information page.
We recommend to carefully read the below information before you start upgrading:
