• Not getting updates automatically


    Since a couple of weeks I’m not getting updates. I have to go into pacman, manually refresh the database and then I’ll get the new packages to install them.

    I’m sure it can be easily fixed modifying /etc/pacman.conf or /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist but I don’t really know what’s wrong. How can I get this little issue fixed?

    Thanks in advance!

  • seems to be related to pamac updates that pamac do not update the .db automaticly… i do not know why but me and some others can reproduce this…

  • I’ve receceived an update for pamac (6.0.3-3) on another Arch based distro on my spare laptop and I’m not 100 percent sure, but I guess the pamac devs handled the problem. So it must be soon that the update also appears in Antergos.

  • Update: I can now confirm, that Pamac 6.0.3-3 shows all updates.

    Hi, I confirm just the opposite!
    Just tried update in pamac: nothing. Then directly after with pacman: linux-lts 4.9.54 arrived. So pamac is not updating properly…

  • I can only say that I haven’t had any update offers for some weeks. I thought it relates to my networking issues.

    So I can try manual update to check, if automatic checking does not work?

  • @manuel I’m talking about version 6.0.3-3 not 6.0.3.-2 that Antergos uses at this moment. You can download it from the AUR, but I’m sure it’s going to update very soon within Antergos.

  • @vpp21 It’s not related to anything in your environment, it’s Pamac.

  • @Bryanpwo, thanks for clarifying! :)

  • @Bryanpwo
    Alright, my bad for missing that. I too have been waiting for pamac to be fixed…

  • @Bryanpwo said in Not getting updates automatically:

    Thanks for your help! I knew something weird was happening with the updates. I’ll wait until antergos updates pamac.

  • Any ETA when we can expect a new Pamac in the Antergos repositories? I too haven’t seen any system updates for a few weeks now and was wondering what’s going on then saw this post.

    I tried to update Pamac from the AUR but it failed while trying to install a dependency. (forget which one)

  • @RoadHazard pamac 6.0.4-2 is in the antergos repositories now, I’ve just installed.

  • Going to install it now then😀.

  • a bit I find it also nice, that the community must inform each other about updates :)

  • What am I doing wrong?

    [[email protected] ~]$ pacman -S pamac
    error: you cannot perform this operation unless you are root.
    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -S pamac
    [sudo] password for roadhazard:

    I don’t see 6.0.4-2 anywhere.

  • Have you tried rebooting the system and try to update again?

  • @RoadHazard you can only get updated packages by updating the databese first, as the titler say pamac is not doing this autmaticly so you need to do it manual: sudo pacman -Syu will do a full system update
    sudo pacman -Sywill only update the db …
    Never do only update one program, partly updates will brake your system!

    If you have self-builded ackages from AUR installed this ones needs also to be updated… but you will get all this together inside pamac again shoirtly (if they do a good job)

  • @joekamprad 😊 Oops did overlook that one.

  • @joekamprad sudo pacman -Syu got the updates flowing again, thanks!
