Title: About LL update problems
Post by: kpanic on August 29, 2018, 04:04:56 PM
Many LL users seem to have problems updating software.

Please check: Start -> Settings -> Lite Sources

Then from all the repositories, choose one which has "ANYCAST" in the region field.
Even if it has already been chosen, click it and then click "Use selected Repository".
Then let the program reconfigure itself and then press Quit.

I had a problem updating software and after doing this, the problem was gone.
Maybe the Lite Sources needed to be explicitly updated like this or maybe it was
just luck - I don't know, but I'd try it if you have update problems, after all, what harm
can it do if the update does not work anyway...

Let us know if it helped, thank you!
