after an update with dnf update on 12 - Nov 2023 the Kde Plasma won’t start.
The log reported: cannot install kf5-akonadi-server-22.12.3-1.el9.x86_64
nothing provides qt5_qtbase(x86-64) = 5.15.9
The qt required are available for almalinux beta version 9.3
I tried to downgrade, but apparently, the epel repository doesn’t store previous versions
When I try I have messages like:
cannot find rpm nevra “PackageKit-Qt5-1.0.2-4.el9.x86_64”
How can I put back the previous epel packages, or allow all packages to be updated?
Unfortunately, currently, I am unable to provide more information for the log as I do not have a working graphical environment and I am using a tablet.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release Dates - Red Hat Customer Portal shows that RHEL 9.3 became generally available 2023-11-07.
The EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) has already (re)built and released packages for EL 9 (so that RHEL 9 users can update their systems, including EPEL content).
AlmaLinux 9 is not 9.3 quite yet.
I do have EPEL repo disabled by default and enable it only for explicit transactions. That way I won’t accidentally use it during point update release twilight zone.
While waiting for version 9.3, how can I make my system work again?
How can I restore the epel packages to the versions preceding the update, so that they are compatible with Almalinux 9.2?
The boring workaround is to use GNOME.
What EPEL has or has not is an EPEL issue. They seem to have archives, but no 9.2 in it.
You have to contact them about that.
Dnf tends to be “all or nothing”. How did yours update some packages, while it failed for others?
I lost both Gnome and Kde !
With reference to Dnf, I don’t know, but that’s what he did.
