Update Manager problem

Postby mklym » 25 Oct 2014 16:37

Running SolydX 32bit.
After looking through the forum, I found a couple threads about problems with UM that were similar to my problem, but I felt there was enough difference to start a new thread.

The tray icon shows there are update available, when I click the icon I get a small window with one button that says 'Close'. When I try and run UM from a terminal, I get the same window as well as this output:

Code: Select all

morgan@cf-29mk4tb:~$ updatemanager

Help with this problem is appreciated. Thank you.

Looks Ok. I just asked because I had the same error message but my / partition is only 6 gigs and I had to free up some space before I could update. But you do not have the same partition layout I have. So you look just fine for room.

Quite frankly. I do not know what else to tell you. Some other member better schooled than me will have to weigh in on this thread. Sorry. :oops:

Edit: It won't hurt to do a

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
in a terminal and maybe start over again though.

Well, still trying. You seem to be not the only one with this issue I see here.

desower has only received a reply from me in the UP thread with the same issue as you and my suggestion was already followed by you.

Sorry, but that is all I find on SolydXK forum that even relates to what you are experiencing.
It is a rare issue and so is a wonderment for sure.

Thanks for hanging in there.
I have read those threads trying to solve the problem, tried some of the suggestions with no luck, then started this thread.
For what it is worth, here is the output from inxi -Fxz:

I too am having problems running UM on one of my machines.
It runs fine on the other, both have received the recent update pack.

From the info I have discovered so far, UM is included to give the process of updating a manageable slick front end.
It appears to provides no function as far as I can see that can't be achieved with other tools, terminal synaptic etc.

My system appears very solid and reliable and it suits ALL my needs and so far I am confident enough with the terminal to not need UM.

If you are confident enough to manage your upgrades via the terminal using:-
"sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"
Then I think the UM really serves little pupose.

Bare in mind this will have to run run manually rather than automatically at login like the UM.

If you can't cope without the UM, hang in there.
I am sure a resolution will be found as this has happened with all the other issues I have had so far with SolidX.

Thanks for the reply.
I have 3 units that all have the UM problem. I have no problem operating the OS without UM. The problem is that I have another CF-29, like the unit I have SolydX32 loaded onto, that I am gifting to a friend. He has no to little computer experience. The unit is going to go into his garage and be used to access service manuals. The folder with the service manuals is on the desktop. He has enough ability to fire the unit up, log in and click the service manual folder, then click the manual he is going to use. He does not know what a terminal is, or how to use it, which is probably good. If he lived locally, I could go to his place and update the unit whenever my unit had updates, but he lives a couple hundred miles away.
Maybe I need to re-evaluate the OS I put on the unit before I send it to him.

If it was me. I'd go with the Business Edition based on Debian Stable then on the CF-29 and Not the Home Edition which
is based on Testing. If I am wrong about Home being based on testing. It is because I am not awake yet.

My Wheezy laptops have been trouble free. But they are not SolydX laptops but AntiX 13.2 laptops.
No XFCE on those antiques. One is a CF-48.

Debian testing has been in flux lately so SolydX is not to blame for it's troubles completely. Just my Opinion though.
My Testing and Unstable Debian gear has been giving me breakages and fits also.
That is why they call it Testing and Unstable? No?

Thank you for the suggestion. I checked the Business Ed, but could not find links for 32 bit version. The CF-29 will not run 64 bit.

Ya, CF-48 is getting a bit ....old. :) Good to hear it is still running.

I am not looking for someone, or thing, to blame, trying to get some units squared around. On my personal units I have no problem updating and/or upgrading from the terminal, it is the units I have given away, and am going to give away to friends that are the concern. I have contacted the owners of the units already out and told them not to worry if the UM icon always shows updates available. I am sure there will be a fix sometime soon.

In the meantime, I am going to check out the Business Ed on my CF-19. Thanks.
