Update wireshark/tshark fails

Postby alfredballe84 » Feb 7th, '19, 11:00

I'm running Mageia 5 and are trying to update wireshark/tshark.

I get the following error:

Code: Select all
# urpmi.update wireshark
trying to select nonexistent medium "wireshark"
the entry to update is missing


Looking at my medias seems correct however:

Code: Select all
#urpmq --list-url

Use the correct command to update. urpmi.update is the command to update repositories, not packages. And as you don't have a repository called "wireshark", the message you get is correct.

If you really only want to update wireshark (why not install all updates as Mageia 5 is already EOL?) then try
Code: Select all
urpmi --update wireshark

or simply
Code: Select all
urpmi --auto-update

to update all packages.
