pkmon?, as far as I know, pkmon is package monitor, perhaps you mean 'pkcon' ?

I didn't even bother reading it the first few times I saw it, because I thought it was talking about pokemon... Anyway, definitely seems like a strange issue. Obviously, you have rebooted and tried again already, right? Does Storeman and Jolla Store open and refresh? Have you seen this - https://together.jolla.com/question/40929/help-needed-command-pkcon-refresh-gives-fatal-error/ and https://together.jolla.com/question/50358/pkcon-fails-after-update-to-10819/?

Yes it was typo mistake pkcon was performed finally successful after few reboots but notification message for old version still pops . How can remove it or it is coming as part of Intex .

If you have not gone through this thread better have a quick look at that.

Performing cleanup is mandatory after a OS upgrade.


  • Remove your Jolla Account (it can be added later), reboot device.
  • Perform pkcon refresh and pkcon -v update (pkcon should work now).
  • Set Check for Update to 'Manual'
  • If notification still persists after performing above steps (it might) then perform
    delete /home/nemo/.local/share/system/privileged/Notifications/notifications.db

By the end of this, all of your issues with pkcon and OS upgrade should be resolved.
