After update, locked Trueos-desktop package?


#1

Hello,

On Friday, 8 December, I upgraded the unstable packages. I had rollback and try again because the CDN was acting up. Anyway, it seemed to work OK. Today, I got another message to update. It only updated a couple of packages (gitterdone and pc-sysinstall), I restarted with a pc-updatemanager startupgrade and that worked fine too.

Now, however, when I run any pkg install, I get a lot of these error messages:

Updating trueos-base repository catalogue...
trueos-base repository is up to date.
Updating trueos-major repository catalogue...
trueos-major repository is up to date.
All repositories are up to date.

trueos-desktop-201711180935 is locked and may not be modified

trueos-desktop-201711180935 is locked and may not be modified
... (repeated many times)

I’m not sure what is going on here, but I felt I should report it. I didn’t lock anything before the update.

My about if it helps:

That is the normal message. Just reminding us that we shouldn’t remove the Trueos-desktop package.

Nothing to worry about

Rod, you seem to be a very busy man who needs more help. I’m not the qualified guy you need, but it does seem to me that the whole BSD lineage needs more attention and I’m glad you’re the one to give it an uplift. I was also concerned about the above mentioned “trueos-desktop-201712111405 is locked and may not be modified” message. Thank you for clarifying that.

just an end user like the everyone else here.

I do what I can to help you all, who in turn help each other, get things squared away and enjoying TrueOS

edit:

truth in advertising. I live within 20 miles of the TN iXsystems (TrueOS HQ), so I visit once a week. I found this project while it was still pcBSD, and through the rough transition to TrueOS. I like this project, and want it to succeed.

I think (but I can’t be sure) that in the recent past there was a rare problem in which trying to install one certain software package would create a dependency conflict, and the conflict resolver would try to solve it by deleting TrueOS. So TrueOS had to be locked in place.

there was earlier this year. Myself and a number of iX staff were hit by it. :frowning:


#7

For the sake of completeness, when I did some experiments and changed from stable to unstable, I had to unlock this package to be able to receive the unstable-updates of Lumina-desktop-package.
