[Solved] MX Updates Question

#1 Post by rej » Tue Jul 10, 2018 6:47 am

A few devices that have not been used in a few weeks did not seem to install the usual updates.

Normally the updates come regularly and there are a number of them after a few days of not using that PC - maybe 10-15-20...

When an update-upgrade whether through the terminal or MXupdater produces only 5 updates after several weeks of non-use and no security updates, I suspect something is not right. After rebooting several times, there are no more updates, even the following day.

Not much information in Var apt log hist.

Switched repos - no change.

I have been reinstalling a snapshot from a more up to date device to fix it and was wondering if there is another way to get the updates without having to do this.

Is there a way to check it?

Thank you.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Hi dolphin-

A problem developed with multi-boot (MX, antiX and Win 8.1), and MS cumulative security patches - creating some complicated issues with partitions, among other things, which might have caused some seemingly random snags in MX also.

Just after repairing it, the PCs that I had not loaded snapshots onto, suddenly after days of not producing anything after the last 5 mentioned, are now updating perfectly. All devices now respond as usual.

I believe (hopefully) it is solved.

Always very grateful for your assistance - thank you.
