• Massive Amounts of Updates - And Errors


    So I just got notified that I have 146 updates. Which seems odd as I update all the time, I look and there are all kinds of updates for everything. I was like, that can’t be right.

    I run sudo pacman -Syy and get the following:

  • Use a different mirror for your package download, the one you’re using right now seems to have problems.
    J.

  • Don’t know how to do that, or why that would happen…

    I never changed or set anything, this is all default.

    explain please

  • Servers are down sometimes or have problems.
    Maybe this topic is helpful:
    [Choose mirror] (https://forum.antergos.com/topic/3267/how-to-choose-your-mirrors-before-installing-antergos)
    J.

  • yea that does not help.

    I ran the first command and it seemed to update something.

    The second command gave an error

    mv: cannot stat '/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.pacnew': No such file or directory
    

    So don’t think that is it… and original problem still occurs

  • My updates today were fine, so here’s the settings from my files so you can try the same mirrors to rule this out:

    antergos-mirrorlist

    #    Automated Mirror Selection    #
    ##                                ##
    ###                              ###
    
    Server = http://mirrors.antergos.com/$repo/$arch
    Server = http://sourceforge.net/projects/antergos/files/mirror/$repo/$arch
    

    mirrorlist

    Server = http://mirror.netcologne.de/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
    Server = http://mirror5.bastelfreak.org/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
    Server = http://ftp.sh.cvut.cz/arch/$repo/os/$arch
    Server = http://archimonde.ts.si/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
    Server = http://archlinux.mirror.pkern.at/$repo/os/$arch
    

    I'm not from this planet but if you speak to me nicely I may choose not to enslave you (for now anyway)…

  • i don’t know how to change those, and aren’t they automatic based on location/speed anyways. So not like I could update them to what you are using?

  • @noobertroon Just edit mirrorlist and antergos-mirrorlist (in /etc/pacman.d), and yes they are automatic in installation but because mine worked, if you use them, you’ll find out if there is a server problem with the ones you use. If there’s no difference to the problem, you’ve ruled bad servers out so you’ll be a step closer to fixing this.

  • I edited mirrorlist and removed the two ones that were starting with rsync

    Server = rsync://mirror.frgl.pw/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
    
    Server = rsync://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
    

    Then updated and got no errors, but I do still have 154 now updates. I have never seen that many at one time, so I am still worried about doing that updates and rebooting, thinking something is still broken…

    hmm. might be fine and normal updates, but still seems weird

  • There was a massive Gnome3 update from v 3.22 to V 3.24 today, that’s the reason for all these updates.
    J.

  • updated them all and rebooting and all seems well. So I guess that was it…

    not sure why the mirrolists got broken or why rsync was being used but guess we will see what happens going forward.

    Thanks for the help guys

  • @noobertroon In my experience, each time there is an update to KDE, over 100 is normal, and if the KDE version coincides with apps versions and qt versions, it could be well over 200. BUT there is no need to be concerned by the number because they are not dependant on each other - e.g. each 1.1 file is replaced with 1.2 etc so if there is a problem, it will be limited to single files and simple to fix.
