I had this same problem.
Did the above command and now it seems as though the update is finishing.
It is in the process of unpacking the packages as I write this.
I just couldn't wait a couple of days to figure it out. I came up in console mode and installed kdm. libc and another 386 "depencency came up and it said to "apt-get -f install" ... I did that and then kdm could easily be installed. Brought the system online and found that the pre-upgrades were already installed, but not the 708M of regular upgrades. Went through that process and all is well. I then removed lightdm and am going to keep kdm in the system to preclude later screwups.

Amazing job by Schoelje and the gang. This is my first UP and I am impressed.

The 'complete' fix (i.e. removing both libgdbm3:i386 and all ia32-libs packages) worked here, on a system built to match an install with all the ia32-libs related items as closely as possible.

Unfortunately I'm not able to test situations where the system will refuse to remove the ia32-libs because some package still needs them. That should not happen with packages provided through the Debian or SolydXK repositories (after all, the libs have been removed there), but programs from elsewhere, which haven't kept up with the transition to multiarch, may cause problems. If you are aware of having such applications on your system, please remove them first.

The fix can be implemented by running the solydfixes script (as mentioned on the UpdateManager's Information page and here) with the full set of options mentioned there, i.e.

Code: Select all

sudo ./solydfixes -kduyft
This will run the entire sequence and should pick up all the pieces along the way.

To get hold of the script, either download it or pick it up from this page (see below - remove the .txt bit), make sure it's executable and run it from the console/terminal. If you have no way to get to a desktop environment, enter the console (if necessary using the procedure I described earlier in this thread) and run

Code: Select all

wget -O /tmp/solydfixes http://duinsoft.nl/pkg/pool/all/solydfixes
to download the script. Make it executable with

Code: Select all

chmod +x /tmp/solydfixes
and run it with

Code: Select all

sudo /tmp/solydfixes -kduyft
I'm truly sorry about this mess and I hope this fixes the problem for all involved.

If we want to push envelopes I have a PI and a PII to test SolydX. Probably far less muscle than the conceived minimum system requirements. First challenge is no DVD drives and no support for USB booting. Yet the age and specs would expose problems unlikely to be seen or noticed on more modern hardware, which is one reason on occasion I use them for testing --- they are so horribly slow. :)

I don't use the regular updater. As like using Apper as been problem free thru all the updates this year.
But now when I go to apply my 1,051 updates I get popup about removal of just Apper 0.8.1-1 and not Apper-data.
Apper updates remove Apper.jpeg
Apper updates remove Apper.jpeg (8.88 KiB) Viewed 3132 times
As have Apper 0.8.1-1 and Apper-data 0.8.1-1 installed now.
Apper 0.8.1.jpeg
Apper 0.8.1.jpeg (2.84 KiB) Viewed 3132 times
Update list shows updating Apper-Data but not an update to Apper itself.
Won't this break update? or Apper? As Apper is being used for the update.

So holding off till someone can shed some light on my situation.
Any Help is greatly appreciated.

My update manager (-u) failed close to the end of updating, details below.

Close to the end of the upgrade via updatemanager -u, The networkmanager failed and for some reason and the updatemanager went into a panic. I wish I had copied it, but if there is a log somewhere it will be helpful too, because I don't know of one. So I restarted my system and the networkmanager worked fine again.

P.S The update manager, Synaptic, and terminal show no new upgrades.

EDIT Also after normally going into the update-manager (not though terminal) below where it shows the UP version it is stuck on 2000.01.01

Just relating that I also encountered the error:

Code: Select all

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
...and the UpdateManager saying it was up to date, which it wasn't, which is a consequence of the whole i386 kerfluffle discussed upthread. First, did this suggestion by grizzler:
grizzler wrote:

Code: Select all

sudo apt purge ia32-libs ia32-libs-i386 libgdbm3:i386
...then followed with running the script as per grizzler's instruction in this post:
http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php? ... 4a5#p39858

Thanks to grizzler's help, the update then continued to a seemingly successful conclusion. Everything seems to be ok now. :)

For what it's worth (probably nothing) I don't know why some 64-bit systems have i386 stuff and others don't, but I do recall having to add them a while back (don't remember when; I've been using SolydK since its birth as a Mint Debian KDE) for WINE.

this is the final part of your dist-upgrade output and it's exactly what everyone should see after a successful upgrade;
even if this UP was somehow bumpy for you, it ended up in a clean, clear update 8-)

EDIT:
the "issue" of the UM being stuck in 2000 is a consequence of using the -u switch to force it to do the full update and will correct itself (consider it for now as an aesthetic question :) )

Soo it will fix itself after a restart? Or maybe its a possible bug :/

Tried the fix

./solydfixes -kduyft

on my laptop.

Still no luck. I still cannot log in into the machine using the graphical interface of KDE.

I can access the machine on a console access.

Any ideas on how to sort this problem out?

I love SolydK64, but this issue is really a nightmare

Any help will be greatly appreciate.

I would just like to offer a big THANKYOU!! to the dedicated and very smart Adminstrator's,testers, and problem solvers who are on this board, answering questions, fixing issues, and responding to people who are having issues, and still debugging this large UP and then rolling it out on time. AMAZING!!! Your hard work is truly appreciated. Again THANKYOU!!

My upgrade of my SolydX 32 system was flawless. I am truly sorry to hear of some users having issues with their upgrades, but I have no doubt that the Administrators and problem solvers on this board will fix any issues.

@zerozero

If this helps I've found these lines of text in /usr/bin/updatemanager

Code: Select all

# Clear Update Pack history
def clearUpHistory():
    histFile = join(scriptDir, "files/updatemanager.hist")
    resetLine = None
    if exists(histFile):
        print(("> Clear up history file"))
        with open(histFile, 'r') as f:
            for line in reversed(f.readlines()):
                if "stable=" in line:
                    resetLine = "stable=2000.01.01\n"
                    break
                elif "up=" in line:
                    resetLine = "up=2000.01.01\n"
                    break
        if resetLine is not None:
             with open(histFile, 'w') as f:
                f.write(resetLine)
I don't know much python, so any reason it keeps reverting back to 2000.01.01 is probably in there.

EDIT: I've tried purging and than reinstalling it, which didn't fix it :-(

EDIT: found the updatemanager log in /var/log. below shows it switching from 2014 to 2000
http://pastebin.com/vuC5ydN9

P.S The reason I'm still on this is because its very- very- irritating (just as much as the dirmngr error was http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3581)

Won't this break update? or Apper? As Apper is being used for the update..
Having never used Apper myself, I have no idea how it would behave under those circumstances, but I wouldn't expect that (then again, there's a lot I didn't expect... :( ).

According to apt policy the current version of Apper in the repo is 0.8.2-2, so I would expect it to get updated. Have you tried updating it first separately? Don't procede if doing that drags in half the update pack though!
As zerozero said, you will need to update things in the correct order.
