Hi, I have a question regarding repositories used in Warehouse. I would like to get an overview which apps I have installed through Warehouse/Openrepos and what is the corresponding repository for it.

Reason for this is: I have 61 active repositories, of which I know some are not used for me since I deleted the app that needed it. Unfortunately Warehouse doesn't offer to get an app related overview to delete/deactivate a repository. So now when I check for updates in Warehouse I'm usually waiting up to 10 mins before I get the list of updates.

Warehouse became extremely slow and constantly hangs, I get constantly the offer to kill the app. I also don't want to deactivate every repository by hand just to understand by try & error which I still use.

Is there maybe a command that lists the app <-> repository dependency? Or is there maybe a command that can show which repository has no corresponding app/lib installed but is active?

Update 1: Probably a duplicate of https://together.jolla.com/question/139085/how-to-get-an-overview-about-installed-apps-used-repos-in-open-repos/

I'll check the answers there and will update this thread

Update 2: Ok, I tried to install zypper as mentioned in the other thread, but I can't install it correctly: As root user (devel-su) I startet pkcon install zypper but it stops with the error message

Installation aborted by user

then I tried pkcon refresh but this also fails with the message

Authentication failed (is SSU set up correctly?)

How do i check for the correct setup? I thought enabling developer mode it all that needs to be done?

Did you create a password for Developer mode?

And now after resetting the app registry and restarting the phone I lost 30% of battery!! and all folders are gone...I hate this bug

Finally it worked without root even...

After being able to install zypper I checked for the command from the other thread and it works:

for REPO in $(ssu lr | awk '/openrepos/ {print $2}'); do echo -e "$REPO:\n"; zypper search -i -r $REPO; echo -e "\n\n"; done but I added also >> repos.txt to get the results written into a text file. You can find the file in the user root folder nemo/home.

In my case I found 9 obsolete repositories that I could deactivate in Warehouse. Very nice...
