    OpenSuse 12.2 updating issue


    I'm running OpenSuse 12.2 and am being notified of new updates but when I accept and apply, it only simulates the update, it won't install . Has anyone else come across the issue?

    I haven't run across that problem.
    I have got rid of /usr/lib/packagekitd as it just got in the way of installing needed packages by any other means such as "zypper install <package>" where packagekitd can refuse all the attempts to be killed and allow zypper to work.
    I use "zypper ref" followed by "zypper dup" to keep my systems updated.

    My problems after the update, from 12.1 to 12.2 is worse, in 12.1 didn't the X run and now doesn't zypper and X run. I get a library-problem, when I try to run zypper (had to modify the URL:s):
    Code:
    zypper refresh

    I know this is probably obvious, but have you tested your Internet connection and that DNS is working: ping router(default gateway) and external DNS servers (ping might not work because of DNS server firewall), use dig
    to update I use the terminal and enter sudo zypper update .

    Not sure what the "no version available" means.
    # ldd /usr/bin/uuidgen
    linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007fff9a800000)
    libuuid.so.1 => /usr/lib64/libuuid.so.1 (0x00007f2973480000)
    libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00007f29730d8000)
    /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007f2973688000)
    # ldd /usr/lib64/libuuid.so.1.3.0
    linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007fff477a0000)
    libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00007f56a1338000)
    /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007f56a1930000)
    The curl error:-
    "route -n" should give the gateway and /etc/resolv.conf should also have the gateway IP address in the form e.g "nameserver 192.168.x.y" in order to be able to resolve a host such as download.opensuse.org.

    You where right, I'm missing the network.
    The system can't start the network and stops in emergency mode, with a request for root:s password.
    The /etc/sysconfig/sysctl was missing, I made a copy from /etc/sysconfig/sysctl.rpmsave to /etc/sysconfig/sysctl, that wasn't enough, maybe a short step forward.
    I've tried to restart the network 'service network restart', it list some problems, stops for a couple of minutes and requests for root:s password.

    I't tried both ordinary and failsafe boot, the difference are that the ordinary boot puts up a green screen with a frog and hangs for a couple of minutes.

    There are no updated log-files, in /var/log.

    Any suggestions?

    The ldd:s gave the same result (I didn't check the hex-digits).

    It might seem daft, but updates sometimes have problems in repalcing all previous files.
    Should you try a new install assumning your /home is safe and backed up?
    As you are in Dublin, you might get this month issue of Linux Magazine* which has OpenSUSE 12.2 files as a free DVD to solve any download problems. (*Issue 144 dqate line Nov 2012 )

    For now this appears to be resolved . A single update came in for Zypper and after that the updates went through. So I'll keep an eye on it and if anything changes I post it here.
