Hello @mandriva2010 Cyril,
Bonjour et bienvenue.

As a ROME user you must know that sudo dnf upgrade/update is not the proper command.
ROME (and Cooker) have to run distro-sync

Second please read this topic and the relevant ones provided with the links.
We suggest to check it every time you are going to update ROME :wink:

This topic in the Italian forum may be interesting to read as well. Use a translator if you need, but looks like simple enough to understand.

Also it may be useful to know your ‘starting point’ before system update:
cat /etc/openmandriva-release

Coming back to the issue you reported please do:

sudo dnf clean all;dnf clean all
But skip this step if already tried to upgrade and the packages are still in dnf cache so you don’t have to download them again.

sudo dnf remove falkon-kde
sudo dnf --allowerasing -x kdf distro-sync 2>&1|tee rome-dsync.log.txt

Adding “-x kdf” will exclude it from the transaction.

Attach here the file rome-dsync.log.txt if you get any further console error or conflict.
We’ll have to learn what to do as we go.

Feel free to ask more if you have any other question.
Once the users get accustomed with the basic the process will be more and more easy.

Hello rugyada and thank you very much for your help.

rome-dsync.log.txt (3,4 Ko)
Something goes wrong with the update.

I get an error message that you will find in rome-dsync.log.txt

Erreur : Erreur de la transaction de test :
le fichier /usr/share/applications/kcm_trash.desktop de l’installation de plasma6-kio-extras-24.02.2-1.x86_64 entre en conflit avec le fichier du paquet kio-kcm_trash-5.115.0-3.x86_64

I hope you understand why there’s an error. I’m sure you do.

Thank you.


Welcome @mandriva2010 to OpenMandriva and our forum. This forum is for users of OpenMandriva Linux operating systems.

OpenMandriva Forums are primarily users helping other users.

You are welcome to talk to our developers at OpenMandriva Chat.

Users with a problem need to read How to get better results when posting about problems before reporting any issue or problem. The article is not too long and Do Read.

When a new user has an issue please look in the documentation for OMLx. OpenMandriva wiki, Forum Resources guide and the “Search” function of the forum.

If you don’t find what you are looking for, try an Internet search. One can find out a lot from documentation or forum posts at other Linux distros. If user finds something written for another distro but you have some doubt ask at OpenMandriva Chat.

For serious technical issues and package/feature requests please file a bug report here.

Note: We are a small group. All the contributors and developers here are unpaid volunteers.
You can make OpenMandriva grow and improve by getting involved

Any help with testing would be appreciated whether one is technically proficient or a very non-technical user. The more people and more hardware we can get involved the better we can make OMLx releases and packaging. We do a lot of testing in VM’s as well. Developers tend to use Qemu, most user level testers use VirtualBox.


$ sudo dnf remove sof-firmware kio-kcm_trash 2>&1|tee rome-remove.log
$ sudo dnf install sof-bin

then start the upgrade again.

The rome-remove.log is created for future documentation just in case.

We will never know if @rugyada suggestion worked. But if I am reading the logs correctly it should have worked. I had to do the same on my ROME systems and worked_for_me.
