Title: Beware of dist-upgrade with plasma
Post by: graviton on 2022/06/14, 10:34:23
Be careful, a recent dist-upgrade would delete KDE Plasma, so you'll have to wait a bit

Confirmed ... if you use KDE, today is not a day to update, hundreds of files will be removed.

Inzwischen sind wohl alle fehlenden Pakete eingetroffen. Mein upgrade lief problemlos durch, ohne dass Pakete entfernt werden mussten.

In the meantime, all the missing packages have arrived. My upgrade went through without any problems and without having to remove any packages.

Now I know why I hosed my main system yesterday. Should not update while tired and distracted at the same time.

I just run a dist-upgrade with no problem:

206 aktualisiert, 23 neu installiert, 0 zu entfernen und 0 nicht aktualisiert.

For me it looks like everything is working as expected.

One day later, KDE updated fine.

LXqt  on the old EEEpc doesn't get updated till Friday, hopefully it'll fix itself by then.

@devil  We've got to bork an update every year or so to remind us we're using Sid. :-)

I remember the old days of Sid being so temperamental that we were in for a wild ride  8)

I have LXQt on an ancient Dell laptop, and last evening a full-upgrade went through with no issues -- one irrelevant package was removed.

Yes, sid is much tamer today than 10 years ago. But it can still bite the unwary person, right @devil?    ;D

@dibl: We have a saying in Germany like:
Code: [Select]
He who has the damage does not need to worry about the ridicule

Or loosely based on Heinz Erhardt: "Whoever has the damage mocks every description."  ;D
