• Update problem exo?

    Getting an error since yesterday, latest 12 updates, not sure which one.

    error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
    exo: /usr/share/xfce4/helpers/vivaldi.desktop exists in filesystem
    Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

    Don’t use xfce.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi there!

    I just had the exact same issue as you are experiencing! Simply go into /usr/share/xfce4/helpers and delete the icon labeled “vivaldi”. Then, attempt to update again. After updating, you should notice that it has replaced the former vivaldi icon with, wait for it, another identical one! This confuses the computer, so deleting the old one before updating is sadly necessary. Afterwards however, it is back where it should be😀.

    Hope this helps!

  • Thanks a lot Keegan. That was a funny one.

  • Just glad I could help! This seemed really strange to me too🙂.

  • Hey Keegan, Have you noticed that message keeps coming back on subsequent updates… but not all.

  • Hmmm… I have not updated recently, so I wouldn’t know. Howeveer, I’ll go update right now and see if it happens.


  • So far though, I have not noticed anything🙂.

  • Just finished updating. Nope. Didn’t happen to me yet. I’m sorry, but I don’t know if I can help then. However, if I do encounter this issue in the near future, I’ll make sure to tell you about it😀.

  • Sure. It was just a heads up really, Keegan

    Thanks! If I do find another, more permanent solution though, I’ll make sure to tell you about it!
