mintUpdate shows no updates

Postby cholcombe973 on Wed May 27, 2009 9:11 pm

Hi guys,

I'm having an issue with mint 5 and now mint 7 rc1. When I run mintupdate it never shows updates. I can connect to the internet just fine with my firefox browser on there. When I try to install something using the software manager that works fine also. It just seems like mintupdate is broken on my box for whatever reason. Any suggestions to fix this?

Thanks!

Might not be any help but I have been running Mint 7 RC since it came out and getting updates until recently.

I followed the suggestion in the below link.

viewtopic.php?f=90&t=26262

I was told my system is up to date. I assume I am running the latest version of Mint 7 Main edition. I could be wrong.

Last night I downloaded and installed the newest Mint 7 Maine Edition in a different hard drive. When it boots up, the boot page looks like the hard drive with Mint 7 RC that has all updates.

Similar issue... I've been running a fresh install of Gloria for close to a week (not an upgrade from the RC) and haven't had any update notifications (other than the first set after you initially install.) Just now I changed mintUpdate preference to show me level 4 and 5 updates, and it STILL came back with no updates available. That's a little disconcerting.

Could one of the moderators reply if they've had any kind of updates over the past week? If they haven't, then I'll return to my state of blissfull ignorance. :D If they (or anyone else) has, I guess I have some work to do to find out what's wrong.

That's ok, just wanted to let everyone know there is nothing wrong with mintUpdate. There just hasn't been any updates available.
