Update manager not finding any updates last 2 weeks [Solved]

Post by Netherprovinc3 »

I have update manager set to check for updates when I boot up my computer (I typically boot 1-3 times per day).

I'd say that it has been about 2 weeks, with no updates found at all.

I have different mirrors for the main (Tessa) and base (Bionic). So, I can't imagine that it's a mirror that stopped hosting new updates. But, I am switching the Tessa mirror now to see if that fixes the problem. So, I'll find out the next time that I reboot.

Its not unusal for the "powers that be" to take a little break during the Holiday season...all you need to do is just click open the update manager and click the tab called "refresh"...if it activates properly, and still returns nothing without saying there is an "error" than everything is most likely OK...DAMIEN

Damien is correct. I haven't had any updates in a while either, but they will come when available.

I'm rather enjoying the annual holiday "lack of updates", as I do every year since I started running Mint 13.
