[SOLVED] From MGA7b3 to MGA RC1 I have no update

Postby kensan » Jun 18th, '19, 22:15

From about 1 month my linux box lacks of updates. I have MGA7b3 with kernel 5.1.3. I have read the blog:
https://blog.mageia.org/en/2019/06/02/m ... r-testing/
and I suppose my linux box should have been updated to kernel kernel 5.1.5 while I stuck with 5.1.3.

I read the other answers like this:

When 7.0 is released, will it be possible to upgrade the installed RCs to the released version by simply installing package updates?

short answer = yes.

long answer => be sure that your on-line media is set up to "7" not "cauldron", they should be anyway.


and I have 5.1.3-desktop-4.mga7 x86_64. So I hope to belong to stable group and not couldron group.

Question: why I'm not receive updates any more?

That is because Mageia 7 has not yet been released. Until it is, new package updates are placed directly in the "release" repo's. You need to use
Code: Select all
urpmi --auto-update

in a root terminal to update your system.

MageiaUpdate only checks "updates" repo's for new packages, whereas urpmi checks all active repo's.
