Update error 10.2, 10.3 A Zen not working
A 10.2 installation, working well on Shuttle 3ghz P4 x64. The update icon had the 'red x'. When trying to update the software, configuring the update sources, etc. the following error appears:
Server stack trace:
at Novell.Zenworks.Zmd.Packaging.PackageManager.GetUp dates (Novell.Zenworks.Zmd.Catalog catalog) [0x00000]
at Novell.Zenworks.Zmd.Packaging.PackageManager.GetUp dates () [0x00000]
I've tried various yum, yumex, Suse updater and two things happen: the above error appears, or the Yast will show a progress bar that downloads available packages, etc. then the GUI quits, nothing happens. Logged in as root, tried the shell versions of the above.
For amusement, I installed the 10.3 Alpha, as an 'update'. All went well, the usual stuff I use is fine, but the update error continues.
Someone suggested the smart package manager... there is some instruction on the suse wiki, though it refers to 10.2. Worth trying that or may I be doomed for the 10.3 update?
I've looked at other update error related posts here and they seem a bit different.
Thanks for looking.
Also... new to linux, have only enough experience to be dangerous.
