On my main computer

A. New issues

Nothing new that appeared after updating my system. However, I had trouble to update my system.

Pamac did not show the updates available with this release. I had Pamac 6.2.5-4 before installing every updates available.

I tried to run pacman-mirror in a terminal in order to get mirrors that are up to date, but it didn’t work; Pamac still doesn’t show any updates at all, even after clicking on Updates in Pamac.

Therefore, I though “Well, I guess I’ll just do with with pacman then.” I ran pacman -Syu and only after that, Pamac showed all updates available. Although I could now use Pamac to install updates, I simply did the job with pacman.

Other people confirmed on Github to have a similar issue recently. Link

I think this is the problem this commit is supposed to solve, but the fix has only been added in Pamac after the initial release of Pamac 6.2.6 according to commit history of Pamac, thus only included in Pamac 6.2.6+Patches (with more commits than initial release) and in Pamac 6.2.7.

Since I had this issue with 6.2.5-4, I suppose that this problem is also a problem present in Pamac 6.2.6-1, which is the version currently available in Stable branch. If it’s the case, I’m afraid users that usually use Pamac to update their system will have trouble next Stable release. Either they will have to do it pacman (good thing to have a fallback in case of trouble), or they will do something so Pamac deigns to show updates and let the user install them.

I have no idea what is exactly the first version of Pamac that have this bug, but for me, I first got this problem with Pamac 6.2.5-4 since I had no problem to update my system back in Testing 2018-03-24 release with Pamac 6.2.5-1.

Edit 2018-04-01 - Added more information in my reports.

========================
So few updates? That’s not what I expected seven days after previous release in Testing.

No love for Firefox 59.0.2? :frowning:


[Stable Update] 2018-04-02 - Kernels, ZFS, Pamac, Udisks2
[Testing Update] 2018-04-11 - ZFS, Firefox, Gnome v3.28.1, Haskell, Python
[Stable Update] 2018-04-02 - Kernels, ZFS, Pamac, Udisks2
#4

Nice & smooth here, on

[kdemeoz@Manjaro_KDE_VM ~]$ uname -a
Linux Manjaro_KDE_VM 4.15.14-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Mar 28 21:45:45 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Considering the date on which this update was posted, i was slightly nervous that after rebooting i might have been looking at Windows 3.1.


#5

Have to remember you’re ahead of the world, well, half of the time. :stuck_out_tongue: Today my easter eggs are grapes. Gremlins were working hard yesterday.

On topic: smooth update, no problems encountered.


#6

Outrageous propaganda! Surely you’re not disputing that we’re all occupants of a disk supported by pachyderms balanced on a space-turtle? What next; will you soon assert that Galileo & Copernicus were not mere hoaxers?


#7

I could reproduce the exact same issue I previously got on my laptop on Stable branch with Pamac 6.2.6-1.

First, Pamac do not detect any update. It shows “Your system is up-to-date.”

Issue with Pamac 6.2.6-1 - Screenshot #1 and 2


Then, like I did previously on testing, I first tried to refresh my mirror list in case it was just an outdated mirror. Same result as on my main computer: even with a fresh mirror list, Pamac doesn’t show any update, even after clicking on Updates in Pamac.

Then, I try to update the whole system with the command line with pacman -Syu. Suprise! There’s one update available: manjaro-cinnamon-settings (it was pushed to Stable as a quick release). After running pacman -Syu, Pamac also shows that there’s an update available.

Issue with Pamac 6.2.6-1 - Screenshot #3

As I did before, I have updated the system with pacman, not with Pamac.

Issue with Pamac 6.2.6-1 - Screenshot #4

Therefore, even in case the problem actually appears randomly (and I got really really unlucky to have it twice in a row), this is an issue we have to expect for next Stable updates release. Since the command line package manager still works fine, using pacman -Syu instead of Pamac is a viable solution if we don’t have any simpler (I mean, entirely graphical, without command line) solution to suggest.

#8

Hmm … i do not get any updates :confused: … even with " sudo pacman -Syyu"

EDIT: could it be that these packages are available for quite some time? Seems i have the actual packages already O_o. Sorry. I do not recall updating them yesterday or today.


#9

Try sudo pacman-mirrors -f3 first, then sudo pacman -Syyu again.
(The first command refreshes your mirrors to 3 that are up-to-date.)


#10

I did that … well it would be pretty lame, but is this an April fools joke?


#11

Did you check if your mirrors are up to date? Should be the first thing you do before attempting to update. Some mirrors sync every 5 minutes, some daily.

Look at the bottom of the OP, there is a link you can use to check if your system mirror is up to date.

Check which mirrors your system is using in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.


#12

Hmm … ok these are my mirrors from the mirrorlist:

## Country : Germany
Server = http://mirror.ragenetwork.de/manjaro/testing/$repo/$arch

## Country : Germany
Server = https://mirror.philpot.de/manjaro/testing/$repo/$arch

## Country : Germany
Server = https://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/manjaro/testing/$repo/$arch

which seem to be up to date.

mirror.ragenetwork.de/manjaro	Germany	http	00:24	Up to date	Up to date	Up to date

mirror.philpot.de/manjaro	Germany	http, https	00:01	Up to date	Up to date	Up to date

ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/manjaro	Germany	ftp, https	03:50	Up to date	Up to date	Up to date

EDIT: could it be that these packages are available for quite some time? Seems i have the actual packages already O_o. Sorry. I do not recall updating them yesterday or today.


#13

We are in the same situation, i don’t have anything new with this update … and those packages where already installed in 2018-03-24 update


#14

All good here (linux415+nvidia+zfs+gnome) except for a small issue related to pamac.

As mentioned already earlier in this thread pamac did not show the updates although the manjaro-linux-updates-indicator shows them all.

In the screenshot below you see that the applet shows 9 updates, but when I click on “Jetzt aktualisieren” or “Jetzt überprüfen”, pamac recognizes only the one update available in AUR, the rest is ignored:

I had to update via commandline.


#15

I’m using the commandline :wink: … and i’m using Octopi as a GUI as i’m on KDE.


#16

I also did not get any new update with this update except for pamac - the rest was already on my system.


#17

Kernels 4.15.14-1 and 4.14.31-1 both show their build date as 29.3.18, so while it is possible people already had them a day or two ago it seems unlikely they were available on 24.3.18 shenanigans aside. :smiley:

p.s. It seems that philm copypasted the old package list in the OP.


#18

That is the snaptshot date of updates we had synced from Arch. Here we have only updated our overlay packages. Others land only in unstable as of now.


#19

That explains why we didn’t get a lot of stuff even 7 days after the last release in Testing.

When will we also get packages directly packaged by Arch, if there’s any date planned?

Does Manjaro Team plan to push stuff we got in this release in Stable branch (plus incoming releases if there’s other releases with only packages made by Manjaro Team) before Testing receives stuff packaged by Arch?


#20

Thank you. Now I know a little better. :apple:
