Central topic for users having troubles with latest updates

Had to manually remove gstreamer1-plugins-bad to get all updates installed.

No problem, sorry you and others had to force update.

Also that forced update did not work for me. After a huge amount of for me crazy text, it ended with those dependenc questions (had to choose between “yes” or “no” a lot of times if I wanted to ignore them).
Because I then could understand what I was doing, I stopped.
Will wait till some permanent solution comes up.

Ok, let me try once more too… :slight_smile: Thanks for the efforts guys!!

urpmi --auto-update --test

LOG NL (packages removed): https://paste.ee/p/4HlNm
LOG ENG (packages removed): https://paste.ee/p/YMOFW
LOG ENG (answered defaults, NO to package removall): Paste.ee - OpenMandriva Fresh install not updating 201705 201706 (ENGLISH logs) (no package removal)

Have others posted success with this? I will do a test run for this… See what it gives :slight_smile:

Update: I guess not :confused: https://paste.ee/p/AbWZq (no idea why it isn’t colouring syntax here)

Also tested…

[root@OpenMandriva3Lx dev]# LC_ALL=C urpme gstreamer1-plugins --test unknown package: gstreamer1-plugins [root@OpenMandriva3Lx dev]#

You did not finish the process. You have to do all the steps:

urpmi task-plasma
urpme kdepim-addons
urpmi --auto-update
urpmi kdepim-addons

the last one is adding back latest version of packages that were removed. Y’all are letting the error message scare you to much. Again it is only telling that it is removing older 16.08 package versions which will be replaced with new 17.04 versions.

Y’all do understand that if you do either:


# urpmi --allow-force --auto-update

Y’all can still install any package that was removed if you really need it.

I’m going to push few updates for this issue.

Better to follow TPG’s lead on this issue than mine. He has superior knowledge on these issues.

I was thinking the same thing… I really feel you underestimate the problem… :slight_smile:



I am clueless as of how you are gonna fix it, but… thanks and god speed! :slight_smile:


Latest log: Paste.ee - latest log [root@OpenMandriva3Lx dev]# urpmi --auto-update --test

Any progress? : )

I am not 100% sure, but I believe those were the errors I was seeing. I would try the following.

urpme kdepim-addons
urpmi task-plasma
urpmi --auto-update
urpmi kdepim-addons
urpmi --auto-update

I think this fixes the issue.

I wouldn’t dare to do it… Last time I tried stuff like this, I fully fubared the GUI and was left with a command prompt… I’d rather have the OK-TO-GO from maintenance team : )

If others dare to try… Do let us know pretty please?


Maybe you could send a personal message (via this forum ) to TPG. TPG is developer extraordinare and OpenMandriva Lx 3.02 Release Manager.

I have the same problem. Tried the icon, and tried in configure your computer, and nothing happens

Tried this and it made no difference, here are my specs.

Are you getting this error?

The following packages have to be removed for others to be upgraded:
(due to conflicts with messagelib-17.04.0-3-omv2015.0.x86_64)

The steps are to fix things when you are getting the above.

Having same problem with what? What did you install? If you install latest release here I suspect you won’t have problems with updating.

Edit: Lx 3.02 was released on June 21, 2017.

If you can’t install Lx 3.02 (by far fastest and easiest solution to update issue) could you provide more specific information? Please post output of each of the commands you have tried that don’t work. Posting only the commands with no output isn’t enough information for anyone to help.

Edit: If your computer is not English language for instance do like this"

# LC_ALL=C urpme kdepim-addons
# LC_ALL=C urpmi task-plasma
# LC_ALL=C urpmi --auto-update
# LC_ALL=C urpmi kdepim-addons
# LC_ALL=C urpmi --auto-update

but do post all output. If output is to much for a forum post (more than say 20 lines) then please use pastebin, paste.ee, or similar.
