Since the update to 3.2.12 I can't install app updates for open repos apps. It is also impossible to install new apps from openrepos, from storeman app as well as from website. The error prompt "Specified path '/var/tmp/TmpDir.3tHc6T' is not a directory: dir///vart7mp/TmpDir.3tHc6T" appears. Did anybody experience the same issue or do you know whht is wrong? Thank you for your assistance!

Have you tried 'su-devel pkcon refresh' that's usually needed after os update for openrepos to work again, but not sure if enough in this case

Refreshong is not enough to get the storeman GUI working; however problem is not that severe as you can install anything from openrepos also via console/pkcon when you have enebled the relevant repository in storeman...

I first thought it is a bug in the repos themselves but it only seems to be a problem in the way storeman invokes the install process.

@juiceme what do you mean? Storeman GUI works-for-me usually after update with just bugging out on update/install, pkcon refresh fixes that. Are you experiencing other bugs?

oops @szopin you're right there it seems to work now.

For some reason I thought it doesn't work (maybe I had some transient problem back then?) so I had not even tried it... since pkcon works anyway.
