Is Vivaldi Updating Or Not


  • Banned

    as you can see from the screenshot i did a update this morning ans i got disabled on the 4 items. i have received vivaldi and chrome udates since installing kubuntu 19.10, so i do not understand why that would be reading that way. if it's not updating them any idea on fixing it?

    @GrimmReaper http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/trusty/man1/pkcon.1.html
    pkcon --verbose get-updates

    pkcon --verbose repo-list


    You do not have a Vivaldi issue but a Linux package updater configuration issue.

    @GrimmReaper What is you problem now? You do not know how to use verbose output of apt or PakacgeKit?

    If you want to know why apt shows some messages, check the config of sources.list and sources.list.d/* for commented deb lines.

    Sorry, but this is normal Linux admin work, you should know this.


    OK last try to help you:

    apt upate 
    apt upgrade vivaldi-stable

    that's just wrong and rude. i'll check their out put, but it is not a fact that i should know how to do it. this is not 10+ years ago.

    apt upgrade vivaldi-stable

    according to that like i thought i have the latest. wondering if it's just saying disabled cause there are no updates. wouldn't be the first time in linux a message really didn't fit what's actually happening.

    Please learn what apt does: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGet/Howto
    and on structure of a repository: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianRepository/Format

    If you are interested why the console shows you such message with pkcon.

    @GrimmReaper If you do not know how to check if you system is up-to-date, then you will never be the administrator of your own Linux.
    That sound rude but it is a fact.

    This is a Vivaldi browser forum, we can not give you a lesson in Linux administration with special package updater tools.
    If you want to know more on Ubuntu, please visit https://askubuntu.com

    i know how to check for updates via the terminal. it's just going into some of the files and knowing what i'm looking for that can be a royal pain. you make it sound like i shouldn't of used pkcon, this is ubuntu based not debian. the push now is for pkcon and not apt or aptitude.

    @GrimmReaper I do not want start a discussion which frontend or backend is the best to update programs on Linux. Users have their own preferences.
    You can use the tool you want, it is your business to know how you can use it. Or you should be ask more precise on usage and debugging of programs.

    To answer you question:

    Is Vivaldi Updating Or Not

    Yes. Otherwise your package manager would have told you if not.

    thank you that's all i wanted to know, so what i suspected about the disabled comment is accurate then that it's just saying that because there are no vivaldi or chrome updates currently available. i just in the last couple of days started using the pkcon instead of apt or aptitude by suggestion of a lot of kubuntu users. i'm personally not seeing the benefit of it. thanks again.
