Problem with updates and mirrors (Solved)

Just noticed we seem to have some (most) out of date mirrors. To work around this user can use the om-mirror-selector.

Install:

$ sudo dnf --refresh install om-mirror-selector

Run script and select 12 (or 13):

$ sudo om-mirror-selector.sh -m
[sudo] password for ben79: 
Please select the mirror you want to use by typing the number next to it:
1       http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/downloads.openmandriva.org/
2       http://ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/openmandriva/
3       http://ftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/openmandriva/
4       http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/openmandriva/
5       http://mirror.lagoon.nc/pub/openmandriva/
6       http://mirror.rise.ph/openmandriva/
7       http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/Linux/dist/openmandriva/
8       http://ftp.vectranet.pl/mirror/openmandriva.org/
9       http://ftp.pwr.wroc.pl/OpenMandriva/
10      http://mirror.yandex.ru/openmandriva/
11      http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/openmandriva.org/
12      http://distro.ibiblio.org/openmandriva/
13      http://abf-downloads.openmandriva.org/

Then in Konsole run:

$ sudo dnf clean all ; dnf clean all ; dnf repolist

$ sudo dnf distro-sync

and from then on update system as you normally do.

Note: We encourage users to select 12 to minimize load on our ABF build servers.

Note-2: OM Lx 4.0/Rock users still won’t see many if any upgrades. “Stable” OM Lx does not get many package upgrades by design for stability and other reasons. (OM Lx 4.1 is scheduled to release around Feb. 1.)

There are people working on this. However mirrors are controlled by the mirror provider. So this is a problem that will take a bit of time to get sorted.

For now this has been fixed by disabling everything except ibiblio (12 in list above) which we sync to directly and abf-downloads (13). Over time we’ll get the rest sorted.
