Problem updating
#1
I have been running Mobian bookworm Phosh on my pinephone. Lately, when updating by using the software update under settings I have been receiving the message "unable to install updates. Prepared update not found: /var/lib/PackageKit/prepared-update". I also tried to update using the terminal and sudo apt update followed by sudo apt install. No luck. Am I missing something? In the past Mobian would post updates every week and the updater under settings worked great. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Do you still have Internet access? It seems there is a problem with the last version of network manager.

I heard that is a known problem,  and that they  "are working on it"...

For my daily driver I am just going to ride this out,  everything I use is working.

For my test phone I flashed the Feb. 20 release,  the basics are all working, but I have not dug too deep into it yet.

Thanks for the info. So far my last update, which worked, is running OK. I will follow your guidance and be patient with the team to provide the solution. I have been very impressed so far at the rate of Mobian development.

I have been updating from the command line and everything seems to be working. Use the tip provided.

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y -y
