Mobian not updating via Software app
#1
Pinephone
Mobian OS
Debian Gnu/Linux bullseye/sid
64-bit
Gnome Version 3.38.4
Wayland

I have Mobian installed on my Pinephone and it is not updating or allowing me to update it via software app. When trying to refresh it says it cannot get it. If I can not update it, does it mean I will have to do a clean install of Mobian every time a new version comes out? I have not updated it since around May 5th of 2021.

have you tried to ssh into the phone and run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade?

That's what I always do. The Mobian GUI software application has never really worked as far as I know.

I think I kind of had that problem but it fixed when I reinstalled mobian. I have updated from the software center several times and it seems to work. all repos are open besides 'linux vendor firmware'. It says ive got Debian 11 and gnome 3.38.5

have you tried to install something like Wireguard? that killed it for me.

Out of curiousity, why ssh into it instead of just firing up terminal and running the sudo apt commands on the phone itself?

Just personal preference. Either works. I just haven’t had a good touch screen experience in terminals.
