Updating Issue **Solved**

Postby subslug on Sun Jul 19, 2009 7:09 pm

I've always noticed Mint Update handles all updates on my Mint system so should I not have Update Manager installed?

Reason I ask is, when I refresh Mint Update it comes back with no updates but, then a program called Update manager pops up showing I do have updates but it also says "Not all updates can be installed"
and wants me to run a partial upgrade.
If I select the partial upgrade a box pops up instantly and says I can not upgrade Gloria to Jaunty whatever that means.

As far as I know the only change to my sources list is that I added one for Wine, I used the Jaunty repos. Otherwise it's bone stock.

I don't know how Update Manager even got installed, is it needed or should I dump it?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It is not installed by the default Linux mint 7 gloria install, so yes dump it, and depend only on the mintupdate facility..

I don't think they will be the same thing
In Terminal
apt search update
    p update-manager - GNOME application that manages apt updates
--this would include upstream (not Mint only) updates for Gnome

Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

It's dumped. :)

Exactly what I needed to know. Thanks DrHu

I'm still not sure how it got pulled in but, good to know it's not needed. It kept wanting me to update kernel headers and Xorg and that didn't sound very Minty to me.
