lately my phone is behaving weird. full story:

old behaviour:

  • crashes always happened - sometimes it showed "critical problem with the app registry"
  • reboot - everything worked again, but all repos disappeared from warehouse (except basil)

new behaviour:

  • every crash now causes "critical problem with the app registry"
  • reboot helps, but all repos disappeared now

additional to that, i cant add repos in warehouse anymore (tried uninstall/re-install warehouse). im worried something important is broken... jolla store still works without any problems though.

normally after reading a lot here (and not having a clue about the actual works of repos and underlying linux), i would think btrf and/or battery (crashes) might be problem sources. but the battery feels fresh (keeps the phone alive for 2 days), also i cant force a crash by doing anything in particular, also battery sits very tight. btrfs: well internal mem is at 4.9GB and that should be the fullest it has ever been, since i have most of my stuff on sd card (i dont use the internal memory much).

any ideas?

just for the record: sfos v2.0.0.10

edit: thanks to objectifnul i deleted the line [disabled-repos] in the file /etc/ssu/ssu.ini and warehouse worked again :-)

Have a look at /etc/ssu/ssu.ini, check the line release=<something> (should be release=, not latest).

Check your credentials:

username=<your ID>

The list of enabled repositories should appear after [repository-urls]

@objectifnul thats interesting:

password=<something i definately never set myself>
[repository-urls] show 3 repos - those seem correct


disabled-repos=<list of basically all openrepos>

what should i / can i do about that? just change the text? with which program?

Execute in terminal ssu re then check again.

When I encountered this issue, it was fixed after version --dup then pkcon refresh (be patient)
