Can't update to 4.3.1

You are in fact missing the Bodhi repo.

 

Open that file as root with the command:

sudo epad /etc/apt/sources.list

At the end add the line:

deb http://packages.bodhilinux.com/bodhi xenial b4main

 

Save and close the file and then run your system updates again:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Hi Guys!

 

A pair of days ago I had to re-install my Bodhi from the previously bodhi-built (via Bodhibuilder) ISO image.

That ISO was created back in july, so it was Bodhi 4.2.0 (64 bit).

After installing the image to my hard drive I have performed all kinds of updates: eeupdater and terminal (sudo apt-get update / sudo apt-get upgrade).

But according to "main/about operating system/about Bodhi Linux" my system is still 4.2.0.

 

Sudo apt-get upgrade command shows that there is nothing to upgrade anymore:

 

Spoiler

 

I suspect that the system is actually 4.3.1 and it's the "about Bodhi" menu that is having a bug, but it still can be a problem with update to 4.3.1 indeed. In both cases it's not normal ...

 

Any thoughts on how to fix this and on how to double-check my system version?





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Noticed that you finished with the command apt-get dist-upgrade after using apt-get upgrade. FYI that brings nothing as dist-upgrade does the same as upgrade but with more permissions so it can do some extras for the packages you upgrade. But caused by your upgrade command there is nothing to upgrade anymore. For the future I advice you to use dist-upgrade only, just to play safe.

 

In this case you missed a little extra in regard to the About Moksha modification.

You might try 

sudo dpkg-reconfigure moksha

Not sure this works to modify the About Moksha though.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Did you restart moksha / your computer after all the packages finished installing? Moksha needs to restart to refresh that menu entry.

Thanks for your answers Charles and Jeff!

 

Yes, the computer was restarted multiple times but still shows 4.2.0.

"sudo dpkg-reconfigure moksha" did not help.

I guess the origin of the problem may lie in the fact that this is not a system upgraded from clear installation but from a bodhibuilder-made image.

 

Anyway if the system is really up to date, having that wrong version number in Moksha menu is not a serious inconvenience.

But is there any way to find out if that menu is being wrong or not?

I mean there must be some source from which moksha gets that bodhi version number ...

Please excuse me my noobish thoughts.

Can you please post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list file?

 

If your install was created from bodhi builder I suspect the Bodhi repo is likely missing from your system, which would explain why you aren't seeing updates from it :)
