{ SOLVED} Update manager weird behavor

Postby Mister Magoo » 25 Feb 2017 18:58

The update manager has unknown symbol at the beginning of it search and at the end of it search. ( see Attachment). That has been going on with the the recent update only, never had problem before. Also I do have to do my update manually because I do not receive any notification. My repository are United state, solydxk repository.solydxk.nl and United state, Debian ftp.debian.org/debian. I have change the last one for Canada Debian ftp.ca.debian.org/debian and have the same wierd symbol.

Also, if I do not want the update manager to stop in the middle of it's work, I have to change my wired connection for WIFI, as if it does not recognize the connection anymore. While the update manager says I do not have a net connection, I use Firefox as a test test and can surf the web normally.

Thank you for your help

Hm, I'm having these symbols too at the top but I don't think it's anything important, probably a wrong encoding somewhere.

More important is that you have to pull your updates manually. I can see from your screenshots that your UM is version 3.06, but it should be v. 3.07. So you should start it manually again. Also, for technical reasons the UM has to be started manually whenever it has updated itself. Alternatively a reboot will work too.

I'm not sure about yout network connection, zill is better equipped to troubleshoot that. It would be good if you could post the terminal output of "inxi -FNrzxx" and of "cat /etc/network/interfaces".

Mister Magoo: Thank you for posting the output of "inxi -FNrzxx".

However, ilu also asked for the output of "cat /etc/network/interfaces" so would you please post this. In addition, please post the output of the following two commands:

Code: Select all

sudo ifconfig
sudo cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Wired\ connection\ 1
Please don't attach terminal output text as either attachments or image files as this can make it difficult to read.

In order to make output easily readable on the forums, please enclose each output in "code" tags. e.g.

Code: Select all

[code]my output text
[/code]Note that there is a "Code" button at the top of the forum editing window which does this automatically for any highlighted text.

This are the answer I got after executing the command that was asked for. The top one is the ifconfig and the second one was edit from my file connexion filaire 1, wich reside in the path: /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/. as you can see there is no ..../Wired\ connection\ 1 path

Thank you

Mister Magoo: Thank you for the two outputs but we are still waiting to see the output of "cat /etc/network/interfaces" as requested by ilu...

Code: Select all

cat /etc/network/interfaces
However, it is possible that your ethernet wired connection is dropping because of a conflict with your WiFi connection. In my experience, the NetworkManager should be configured so that only one network connection is enabled (either wired or wireless) at any given time. The other connection should be disabled.

Of course, if the other connection is required, this is easily done by clicking on the NM icon and connecting the desired connection, then disconnecting the other connection.

This is from the file interfaces.txt in the following path: system files/etc/network/. I do not have the path you are asking for.
Also I was not aware that my wifi connect itself when the wired was plug in. I thought that, it only search for connection when nothing else was available. So I disabled the automatic connection for both the wire and the wifi

Thank you

The "interfaces" file should not have a ".txt" extension as, although this is a plain text file, filename extensions are not generally used with Linux system files.

For your reference, please see this example from my system:

Code: Select all

Hopefully, this fix has now resolved the disconnection problem.

If this is the case, and your system is now upgrading correctly with your wired connection, would you now please mark the thread as solved to help any other users with a similar query. You need to edit your first post in this thread and add the prefix [Solved] to the title. Only the OP (Original Poster) can do this.
