Now comes the bad news: the VL developers DELIBERATELY disabled the functionality you want in gslapt. They don't believe in doing system upgrades. I disagree and have voiced that disagreement but I don't make decisions around here. The net result is that you can't do it from the GUI.
If the developers read this...
As a Vector newbie, I am also in disagreement with this.
The users need to update using the easiest means possible
, for most, that is the GUI
By "upgrade", if that definition is upgrading from one version to another (e.g. 5.9 to 6.0), I would simply install the new version from scratch. I once upgraded a different Linux distro instead of installing the new version from scratch and I ended up with a mix of old and new files. It wasn't pretty...
Otherwise, if it is upgrading different packages that are part of the same version (5.9), this functionality also needs to be implemented.
Update and Upgrade could have two different definitions...
I enabled /testing because NTP was in that repository and I havbe always used NTP with Linux. It has been disabled in the Gslapt settings and I'll try the command line items you specified. Thank you for the help.
