Question Can't update Mandrake 10.1


I installed Mandrake 10.1 a few days ago and got my internet connection working today.
However, whenever i want to update my distribution and I try to send my configuration to Mandrakeonline i get the following messages:
1. Reading configuration
2. Sending configuration...
3. Problem occurs when uploading files, please try again
Each time i try again i get the exact same message. Anybody got any ideas?
Thanks in advance for your help

You need to register to use the mdkonline facility, you can find more info on their website.

I think since the name change from Madrake to Mandriva, the domain names that you update from has also changed.

August, 12th 2005 - Please update your bookmarks! - As many of you already know, all our former domain names which included the word "mandrake" have been deprecated: we do not use them anymore! And since the end of July they aren't valid anymore.

Regards,
Shelton.

BTW just in case you don't know you can get updates for free just by running Mandrake update from the Control Centre. You don't need to pay for Mandrakeonline

You need to get the latest mdkonline program and install it.

see here:

If you like, automate nightly or weekly URPMI updates. I run a nightly cron job that runs urpmi and keeps everything up to date.

Code:
[boxerboy@localhost boxerboy]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost boxerboy]# urpmi mdkonline
Everything already installed
[root@localhost boxerboy]# urpmi mdkonline1.2
no package named mdkonline1.2
[root@localhost boxerboy]# urpmi mdkonline-1.2-0.1mdk.src.rpm
unable to access rpm file [mdkonline-1.2-0.1mdk.src.rpm]
error registering local packages
[root@localhost boxerboy]# urpmi mdkonline-1.2-0.1mdk
no package named mdkonline-1.2-0.1mdk
[root@localhost boxerboy]#
i tried all ways i could think of to do it and still errors the reason i didnt take the first one serouly is everytime i use anything in mandrake to update files it cant connect to the site due to domain change.

im assuming that worked :
Code:
root@localhost boxerboy]# urpmi.removemedia -a
removing medium "The Ultimate Linux Desktop DVD (cdrom3)"
removing medium "The Ultimate Linux Desktop DVD (cdrom2)"
removing medium "The Ultimate Linux Desktop DVD (cdrom1)"
removing medium "The Ultimate Linux Desktop DVD (cdrom5)"
removing medium "The Ultimate Linux Desktop DVD (cdrom4)"
found 0 headers in cache
removing 0 obsolete headers in cache
write config file [/etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg]
[root@localhost boxerboy]#
ok after that i go to the site should i try 2005? or just go back to what i have i would rather have the latesssst stable so just pick 2005 and all the sources or what?

yes that looks good now goto the next step. you must use the one that fits your version select the version and architecture then goto step 2 select the 3 ftp that you want

1) Core distribution:

Source contrib : Some packages made by voluntaries or Mandriva, no support, no update for it.
exapmle select the one you want

(ftp://ftp.clinet.fi)


Source main : The core of the Mandriva Linux distribution
exapmle select the one you want

(ftp://ftp.clinet.fi)


Source updates : Official updates for Mandriva Linux, including security updates
exapmle select the one you want

(ftp://ftp.clinet.fi)


once that is done then click the proceed to step 3 button


this will generate the info in a box below just copy and paste that into the terminal and hit enter

once all that is done then you can update the programs on your copmuter to the latest out
