Missing content in ANPM
« on: October 31, 2017, 12:28:16 pm »
I had to buy a new disk (SSD). This disk I want to use as the place for OS's - ArcaNoae, win, ecs.
I started installing eCS 2.2b. Went well. Then I checked for internet  connection - OK. Next step was to install ANPM and downloaded it from AN. Installed it using WarpIN 1.0.19. Got a message about an old version of a dll and had to remove it. Then the installation went fine, and I could start ANPM. Again all was OK..
The list with installed packages seemed to be fine. A lot of the packages were marked with a "star" to inform that this packages had newer versions. That was to be expected as the installation of eCS2.2b was from an installation disk/DVD from 2015.
The list of available packages was, as expected, very long.
I started the update process. About 60 packages were to be updated. It seemed to take some time, so I left the Desktop for a while.
Coming back the job was done. When I opened ANPM there was nothing. The list of installed packages was empty, so was the list of available packages and so was the list of repositories.
The install log was long without error messages and showed that the job took about 8 minutes.

So what to do now.

I de-installed and re-installed the ANPM. Same result.
I de-installed, rebooted, and installed again. Same result.

But there was a difference from the first installation: The installation took less then a second. A message was displayed, but just for a fraction of a second, I could not read it. But WarpIN ended with a message about success and updated Config file. The install log was empty.

I believe the problem has something to do with the missing names of the repositories, and I have tried to find some solution, but with no luck.

Now I hope you can help me.

Hi Einar,

Here are a couple of links to AN/RPM/YUM info sites, I extensively used these to migrate from my old ZIP/manually based tracking of the updates.

1) ArcaNoae 'RPM & YUM Best Practices' => https://www.arcanoae.com/wiki/anpm/rpm-yum-best-practices/

2) ArcaNoae 'Package Manager' => https://www.arcanoae.com/wiki/anpm/

3) Netlabs 'RPM&YUM for OS/2 and OS/2-based systems' => http://trac.netlabs.org/rpm/wiki

At the very least these will allow you to find the LOGs on your system, once you have them, posting the specific sections in this thread might allow us to help you out.

Hi Einar, first upgrade libc and libcx and then reboot. There might be something else such as Python or RPM that also needs a reboot.
The next version of ANPM (in beta) will know which packages to first update and will insist on the reboot.

Hi Einar,

This issue is described at wiki as Dariusz  mentioned.

Excact link is https://www.arcanoae.com/wiki/anpm/non-updated-systems/

I have used this page a few times myself, when I have used a older  DFSEE image in recovery of PC and then needed to update yum/ANPM.

Thank you all of you.
I must admit that didn't read these instructions before I run the first update, I updated all! I followed my own nose. It normally points in the right direction, but not this time. Later today I hope I'm up and running again.
