OpenSUSE :: Repository 11.3 Update Appears To Outdated?
Jun 26, 2010
I'm using openSUSE 11.3 M7, recently I'm getting following message -
linux-kqyd:/home/anant # zypper up
PackageKit is blocking zypper. This happens if you have an updater applet or other software management application using PackageKit running.
Tell PackageKit to quit? [yes/no] (no): yes
I've been always curious why I have old versions of my software in my Debian's repository. As examples I checked my Apache, PHP and Octave versions. Each of them is outdated (Apache 2.2.16, newest is 2.2.17 | PHP 5.3.3-7 - newest is 5.3.5 | Octave 3.2.4 - newst is 3.4)! When I had Ubuntu there were always upgrades to the newest possible version. Actually I had really fewer problems with Ubuntu. ;/
How I can fix it? My sources.list: # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.2 _Lenny_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-2 20090628-15:08]/ lenny contrib main # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.2 _Lenny_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-1 20090628-15:08]/ lenny contrib main ## security deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
I'm using Linux Mint Helena and my software sources seems outdated. I keep getting the error:
Code: Could not download all repository indexes The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.
Can I link to repositories which my system is not configured to, for example, could I include all the latest Debian, Ubuntu and Linux Mint 10 respositories (even though Iḿ using Linux Mint 8?
I've made a terrible mistake that I changed files in /etc/yum.repo.d and /etc/yum.conf.Now I can't get update by yum update, saying that ERROR: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again. Now I'd like to reset everything to default.What can I do now?
Wondered if anyone had a fix for this bug? I have been successfully updating my PC daily, however every now and again i get the warning triangle in the top right hand corner stating Update manger even thought updated almost daily reports "The package information was updated 26 days ago".
I have been into synaptic manager and slected best server for my updates and then i go into update manager and update the system, however, it doesnt solve it.
I have a problem with updating files in the update manager. Each time i do an update a red exclamation mark shows up eith the following error message : The update information is outdated. This may be caused by network problems or by a repository that is no longer available. Please update manually by clicking on this icon ant then selecting "check for updates"and check if some of the listed repositories fail. I tried doing this manually but nothing happens. I get a message saying that my system is up to date, and just underneath that it says "the package information was last updated 17 days ago".
I noticed a red triangle at the top right of my screen today and I've been trying to sort out the problem. is says "update information is outdated" I used the update like it suggested but get this error msg. I'm new to ubuntu/linux so explain in simple terms: "Could not download all repository indexes. The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct. [URL].. 404 Not Found Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."
Ubuntu tried to update, but some problems occurred. The triangle with an exclamation point in it showed up and I rolled my mouse over it.This is what it says:
"The update information is outdated. This may be caused by network problems or by a repository that is no longer available. Please update manually by clicking on this icon and then selection 'Check for updates' and check if some of the listed repositories fail."
I did what it says and this came up:"The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct."
and in the white box below the message:"Failed to fetch url 404 Not Found Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."
I'm using 10.10 i386 on hp pavilion dv9620us. The top panel keeps showing a red triangular caution alert that when moused over reads: "The update information is outdated. This may be caused by network problems or by a repository that is no longer available. Please update manually by clicking on this icon and then selecting 'Check for Updates'and check if some of the repositories fail." I had clicked this button a few times. The first time it installed a kernel update. The next couple times I don't think it did anything but check for updates.
I've installed Ubuntu five months ago, and updated to 11.04. About two months ago, a red triangle started appearing in tray from now and then, with this message: The update information is outdated. This may be caused by network problems or by a repository that is no longer available. Please update manually by clicking on this icon and then selecting 'Check for updates' and check if some of the listed repositories fail.
When I open the Update Manager to check for updates, it says: Failed to download repository information Check your Internet connection.
Details: W:Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found , W:Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
My connection is just fine and when there actually are updates, everything works great, so I don't understand why the red triangle goes on showing up in tray.
I have a problem. When I start Yast, and it tries to download the update repository, there is a checksum error. The problem is, that this error is always there, it occured about 2 weeks ago and never disappeared. When I change the update repository to a specific one, I chose a german one, there is still that checksum error. If I say yast I want to still use the repository with the error, there comes another checksum error, if i say i dont care about that one either, it says
Code: "Download failed:./repodata/primary.xml.gz could not be retrieved from http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.2/Progress:-[DownloadCommand.cc:195] caught EOF from server"
i am getting enjoyed openSUSE 11.3 but i got some problem on installing some applications like nano, pico and i couldn't update the system in CLI and/or GUI ()YaSt software update), i am feeling all the problems are related with the repository, and i have tried to refresh, add and edit repositories still i can perform such actions, i am the supper user (root).
I cannot download the timezone RPM(and other RPM's) from several repositories(I haven't found ANY that will allow me to DL the timezone RPM's and I have checked 8 so far!) This breaks the update as it will stall on any of the undownloadable(new word for O.E.D. undownloadable) RPM's
Error Type: <class 'yum.Errors.RepoError'> Error Value: Error getting repository data for installed, repository not found File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3125, in <module> main() File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3122, in main code....
It mentioned bug report but I don't know where that is. I'll try later.
YaST2 -> Package -> All Packages -> Update if Newer Available that YaST would install the most current in the highest priority repository. Given the example data below, I thought package A, version 01, which is currently installed from repository abc, would be updated to version 02 from repository xyz.
How do you get YaST to update packages from the highest priority repository?
Code: Sample Data: Repository: xyz package A Ver:02 priority:50 Repository: abc package A installed Ver:01 priority:99
I am trying to update four OpenSUSE 10.3 servers. This worked once on one server, but I have been unable to repeat that success. I use yast's Online Update to select repositories, but at the end of the repository refresh they keep coming back with 'No active update source is available. Exit Online Update now?' I get this error: Download failed: File /repodata/repomod.xml not found on media: [URL]
It appears to connect to remote repositories, but always fails. Is it realistic for me to expect to update 10.3, or is it a lost cause? I am not ready to jump to 11 yet, but I am required to update them. I am a newb, so I am not clear on the process. Are package versions locked in place for specific versions of OpenSUSE? If so, how can I find out what the final versions were for 10.3 so that I can at least tell my auditors that they are as up-to-date as they can be?
For some reason, when I do a yum check-update I get a list of no changed packages to install. If I follow this immediately with a yum update then it tries to install drbd83. I've tried a yum clean all and repeated the commands and get the same thing. This happens on both the machines that are set up to use DRBD. Just seems weird and I don't understand. Anyone got an explanation?
I've noticed that Synaptic shows VLC 1.0.6 as the latest version of VLC. Except this is not true and 1.0.6 is way out of date. Version 1.0.6 does not even have a REPEAT icon button for the control panel. But newer versions do. Running Windows I can download VLC version 1.1.5 and make use of a REPEAT icon.Is there a way to update the repository? Or a way to tell Ubuntu developers that the VLC repository is way out of date and needs updating? I'm running 10.04 LTS--I thought this was supposed to deliver longterm updates?
So I finally got ubuntu..I wanted to play team fortress 2.Runs great in wine etc.But 1 problem.It keeps saying my graphic card is outdated.I cant see anything.So I downloaded the driver from nvidia website.Followed some instructions.But it says cannot open binary file or something.Is there any other way to update graphic drivers.Cause I realy still want to play some windows games.Mount&blade, Atlantica online,team fortress 2 etc
I switched off all updates just because I want to let the system update when I tell her to. But this red triangle in my systray is annoying me terribly a coupe of days after an update which actully forces me to just update it! How can I get rid of the evil red triangle?
I'm running a standard 10.04 install with Gnome, but wanted to try out KDE 4.5 since it just came out. Now I installed KDE through the normal software channels and this installed 4.4.5. The question is how do I now upgrade to 4.5 as it appears 4.5 isn't in the stable ubuntu update channels?
I have Ubuntu 10.04 dual boot with WXP Update manager said I needed to update. Gave the password. Then it said reboot. When I rebooted, only the XP partition would boot. I saw that grub was updated. Is it possible that the grub update corrupted my grub? I can see the menu to select either WXP or Ubuntu, but when I select Ubuntu, the system reboots from scratch. I am booted from an Ubuntu USB key right now. I tried to mount what I think is the Ubuntu partition, but there does not appear to be anything on it.
I recently removed Winblows Vista from my laptop and replaced it with Kubuntu 10.10 (I left the recovery partition on there, just in case). When I turn on the computer, the GRUB menu appears, I press enter, then a little flashing underscore appears on the screen in the top left hand corner. After a few seconds, the Kubuntu logo appears and I can log in.But yesterday I replace Kubuntu with Ubuntu 10.10. The Boot process is the same, but the little flashing underscore in the top left hand corner flashes for about 10 seconds longer then Kubuntu 10.10 did, and then a few paragraphs of text appears for a few seconds, then I am logged in automatically.Is this "unusual" boot process anything to worry about, or am I just being a noob.
I manage a computer remotely in a different country. The last upgrade I did (to openSUSE 11.2) seems to have had one issue that I didn't work out until later. I am unable to "Online Update" or "Software Manage" the system. Whenever I do I get the following error:
I have been through a number of attempted fixes via the thread 434687-software-repository-corruption but have not managed to resolve the issue. There is no one at the location that could repeat the "update" to hopefully fix the issue that way. I have a copy of the 11.2 DVD iso file on the remote computer. Is there some way that I can get the repository DB rebuilt or reinstalled so that I can then install other software and do Online Updates? Whatever I try has to be doable with the system running so that I can OpenVPN connect and issue commands remotely.
