[EN] Lost my plasma-discover after the recent update
« on: 2024/03/12, 21:58:50 »
Hi,
I have new to Siduction Linux. After the recent update, I am not able to find the plasma-discover for software update and installing deb packages.

I tried installing it again but got error:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install plasma-discover
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 plasma-workspace : Depends: gdb-minimal but it is not going to be installed or
                             gdb
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

Well. you have to wait till the time_t transition is over!
Meanwhile you can use pur apt on the command line, like apt update, apt upgrade /full-upgrade, but be careful and read what apt want to do. Take a look to the upgrade warnings in our Forum.

Mh, one more thing, try "apt install discover gdb-minimal+".

Using discover in these rough times is not a good idea, better use apt, for searching discover is ok, but for all other tasks not.

For more information about it, read the manual ->  https://manual.siduction.org/sys-admin-apt_en.html#why-use-apt-exclusively

independent of "discover" or any other package in "apt(-get) dist-upgrade". "apt(-get) upgrade" works, at least for me.
I fixed this using "aptitude". May be, there is another method without using it.
