Problems with command usm -u all

Post#1 by PolygonMan » 26 Jul 2020, 14:01

Hey there, im new to porteus and am trying to install some repositories. After running the command usm - u all, it downloads 5 files and then says 'There was a problem downloading the file:' with nothing listed after the colon. I have alread tried changing the repository mirror location to a mirror in Germany, and still no dice. It would be nice to have firefox at the very least.

Menu > Internet > Browser Selection and Update Tool does that. :happy62:

The internet tab in the applications menu has no such application on there?

which DE are you using?
in any case: open a terminal and as root:

Code: Select all

update-firefox

Please provide the complete error message. We would be happy to give you full access to usm. Are you working with porteus v.4 or v.5?
