What do I do if Bodhi has been updating for 4 hours


I installed Bodhi 5 AppPack two days ago. I started updating today at 12 noon and now it's almost 4.
It's stuck on "Processing triggers for menu 2.1.47ubuntu2.1"
I'm pretty sure I shutdown in the middle of an update the other day. I've heard doing that can break things.

Now what do I do?

Sounds like hard drive got stuck. Stuck on configuring with no errors. Might have to do

Code:
sudo apt-get -f install
in terminal

If noticing breakage on a reboot.Maybe I should not have replied. I am not familiar with bohdi and app pack.

Okay, I'll look into that command. The AppPack version of Bodhi is just Bodhi with a lot of additional software and not the usual minimalist distro.

Yeah, that would cause a lot of issues. You could spend a lot of time tracking down a lot of broken packages, bad linkages, half-installed stuff. Actually, you could spend a LOT of time doing that, with zero guarantees. Maybe some good experience, but not necessarily with a complete or stable installation.

Personally, I would save off any personal files and data that I might have stored on the computer, and then I would just re-install. Plan on a lot of time needed for updates. I know, I installed the Bodhi App Pack and was updating for a very long time. Worth it in the end, but a very long process.

jglen490, would you say my computer is too old? It came with Windows 7. So the way I look at it I'm using a two year old OS (Bodhi 5) on a eight year old PC (ThinkPad t520). It may as well be a ten year old PC.

OP, are you using Bohdi's GUI updater?

I have Bohdi in a VM. When I use the Bohdi GUI updater, it does not display any indication that the update is complete. However, if I stop the updater and restart after a reasonable amount of time, it will check for updates, then tell me the system is up-to-date.

This has happened multiple times over a matter of weeks (I do not run the VM every day by any means) with on degradation of performance of the OS.

Yes I am. I'm using the update with the icon in the "task bar" (eepDater - System Updater.) That's what you mean right? I don't have any important files so I may try what you do.

Well, I use the updater from the Bohdi menu, but I've got a dollar to a doughnut it's the same application.

You could try updating from the command line. I just tried it and it completed successfully:

Code:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
sudo autoclean
sudo autoremove

Here's a tweet with the last screenshot I took.

I think I'm set. I re-launched the updater and now there's just one update: linux-base.

If I update through CLI will I have to do it that way all the time? I prefer the GUI.

Thanks for the update.

Personally, I prefer the command line, but that's just me.

The command line is always faster, if you know the commands.

(And, no, I don't always know the commands, not by any means.)

I used the command line also for my post-install updates. Bodhi is not an old distro, although it does have history. What I did say was to allow for plenty of time to get the updates done, because it's difficult to project how long it will take. My laptop took a long time, because it IS an old machine with just 2GB RAM and a Celeron 2840 (IIRC). Yours could take less time, but I have no means to figure that out. Just be patient with it. You could start the update, then come back and check on progress from time to time if you have other important things to do.

This is a known issue with the old eepdater. It doesnt look like its done even when it is.

It is no longer included in the latest release of bodhi 5.1 - the apppack includes the linux mint updater, which is supposedly really nice.

Non-apppack versions just update with sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade.

If I were in your position, I'd grab 5.1 apppack and start over, since its such a fresh install anyway.

Question Stick with the Bodhi 5.0 updater?

I don't know if this is a unrelated issue for another thread but I'm not sure if I want to install Bodhi 5.1 if it uses the Linux Mint updater. I heard on a YouTube video that the problem with Linux Mint is it doesn't deliver kernel updates automatically.

"New features in Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon - Linux Mint"
https://www.linuxmint.com/rel_tina_c...n_whatsnew.php
Says what's new but I don't really understand it.

Here's a video from 2017 that mentions kernel updates and made me wary of Mint (I made the video start when it talks about Mint security)
Linux Mint vs Ubuntu - YouTube
https://youtu.be/wWjX3TltfKg?t=479

I may just stick with Bodhi 5.0 unless anyone can show me how the new updater in 5.1 is superior.
