I wanted to update from 2011 directly to 2011.2. there were around 379 updates to be installed. i tried to update all via both the Package Manager and the terminal pisi upgrade command. After downloading some pisi packages one of the packages fail to download and give error. Next time issuing pisi upgrade will result in downloading the previous problem package and then some other package will fail to download.

Hence i have to issue repeated pisi upgrade commands. Am i doing something wrong?

Second issue, is there only one repo? I am using 32 bit Pardus. Can someone put a list of all repos for 32 and 64 bit in a sticky thread, etc., for the benefit of new users.

hi mahmood,

have no answer on your upgrade questions, since i seldom use upgrades for an os.

on the repositories, atolboo has made a list (they work with 2011.2 too, afaik):

Hi Mahmood,
I no longer have 2011 installation disc, but I do remember a package manager update error, one package kept hanging up the entire update.  I think it was zemberek-server, but not sure.  What I did was after doing sudo pisi up to renew the list after initial install, then I removed zemberek-server package and then just did one update, kdebase, which pulls in a few other dependencies.  After doing this, I did another "sudo pisi up"  and selected all the packages and all went well.  I do remember the above not always working, (pisi wouldn't let me remove the troublesome package) but kept at it enough where I think pisi got tire of me and gave in.  Sorry I can't remember the details.

This probably means there a temporary problem on the server side and/or your internet connection.

My only solution is the repeat the upgrade in Package Manager or
Code:
sudo pisi up -y
in konsole until your reach to the end.

If atolboo's suggestion does not work for you, here is something similar to error I got, the out of range error, translated from Turkish forum, where you can see Sedo79 got to the last update and it stalled.  That is what happened to me, but not with 'spring office' but another package.  biranty offers another command that could work with the offending package.  Just a suggestion as I don't know if it is the same problem you are getting.
P.S. The turkish word 'su' translates to 'water'.   Smiley
P.S.S. And correct command for biranty's suggestion for the offending package:
sudo pisi rm package name --ignore-comar

Hi atolboo and Lisa,

Thanks for help,

At the moment i am patiently issuing pisi upgrade commands one after the other, as suggested by atolboo. every few packages, it tells me that one of the package xxx.pisi is not available, next time it downloads it and gives the error on some other package.

I will keep on doing this. i will also try to selectively upgrade important packages first.

By the way, do we have firefox 6.0 in repos? you know both mozilla and libreoffice developement is so fast these days, maybe the devs need to automate the repo updates  Smiley

ff 6.0.2 is now the default ff version for 2011.2 (installed when updating...  Embarrassed )
if you would like to use an older version, like the 3-series, you could try pardus kurumsal 2 (an enterprise os)  Wink

Well...
They are kind of slow with the updates.
I dont' now if they just are to few people to maintain all packages.
I agree Pardus should have Firefox 8 now:

In this aspect Ubuntu are faster. Smiley

Although this was for slackware, but i guess this can be used to install the latest Firefox:
