[SOLVED]How do I disable the KDE plasma system updater?

Postby akbrian » May 30th, '18, 03:15

I'm getting two sets of update notifications in my taskbar, the usual MGA one and the KDE one. This results in downloading updates twice if I want to clear the notifications. Of course, whichever one I do second tells me updates are already installed after the download. I see how to reduce the frequency that KDE checks for updates, and I've changed that to monthly, but I don't see how to disable it. I also don't like how the KDE updater doesn't ask for my root password before installing system updates. I'm on 64 bit Mageia 6.

Are you able to take a screenshot of when both updaters are shown?

just take a snap of the notification area, not your whole desktop and post it back.

I only ask, because this behavior is new to me. (running both Mga6 and Mga7 x86_64 plasma5.12.2-1)

Do you have plasma-pk-updates installed? That is not usually installed on Mageia systems. You should be able to remove it using MCC - software management.

Yes, I had;
- plasma-pk-updates-0.3.1-1.mga6.x86_64
installed, removing it also removed;
- apper-0.9.3-0.2.20170226.mga6.x86_64

Here's a couple of screenshots from prior to removing it.
