Mageia 8 getting latest release

Postby brm » Mar 1st, '21, 22:38

Hi all. This installation of Mageia 8 was installed a week before the official release. It was a release candidate I believe.
So far Mageia says it has no new software to install. I would like to confirm that it is running the full Mageia 8. Any ideas?

You can check what you have in /etc/mageia-release.

You should check what repos you have enabled via
Code: Select all
urpmq --list-media active --list-url
and if
Code: Select all
urpmi --auto-update
reports that no packages need to be updated then you have Mageia 8.

There are not much updates released yet, but there are quite few in testing to be released soon.

urpmi --auto-update did the job resulting in many updates - thanks for this.

also a list of my repos - hope they are correct.

Great.
It seems you have double set of same repo, same mirror, so delete the *distrib*
