Title: LL 4.6 "System up to date" several days
Post by: Redchief on December 30, 2019, 11:49:22 AM
My system has not been updating for several days now. Not sure what has happened?

Thank you,

@Redchief ,
Your topic says several weeks, but your post says several days.  If it is several days, except for maybe a browser or wine update, I've gotten nothing new either, but I assume it's because of the Christmas and New Years break.

@Redchief The Lite Widget will tell you how many days since you lasted updated ;) or ran updates
I updated last night and it had been 14 days or better since my last - there were 4 minimal items, so you're probably ok...


If you're inclined to see/try the widget, you can enable..


Menu > Settings > Sessions and Startup > Under Application Auto Start - Tick the box "Lite Desktop Widget"

Looks like 11 days since last update. Thanks for telling about the widget. Very handy. Guess programmers need a break too.

i have been having the same thing. I run the updates and it looks online and then tells me my system is up to date without downloading anything. In my case, it has been 5 days now - not so long, but still kind of surprising.

I might be wrong but, isn't a good thing having our system up to date for several days? I mean, it's not like it's been months since the last ones came in and as far as I know LL is not a rolling release distro neither it is based on Debian sid or any of the sort ... I never really care for that as long as the system works fine I assume updates will come when they have to, otherwise I'd install something like Arch or Sid and receive updates almost everyday ... just saying. :)

I concur.  I'm not a huge fan of updates anyway, and usually only choose security updates until I'm satisfied that other updates won't cause problems (watching the forums and stuff, looking for threads like, "update broke my _____").
