Update to debinx file processing
« on: April 24, 2017, 02:18:39 PM »
The streamlining of Debian/Ubuntu Packages files on our server has had a few bugfixes which should result in a more accurate dependency gathering.  Expect sce-update to report most existing SCEs as needing updates due to this even if you ran it very recently.

I have had no issues updating two separate installs with sce-update -a but what you see may be a result of the dependency gathering change.

What is the name of the sce that it hangs on, and the contents of the list file if it has one?

Has any entries in the dep files been added manually?

Hi
I don't think so, normally I manually create the dep file then I run sce-import.

Ok, though sce-import is the only correct way to creat a .dep file, I will look into if there is a check to prevent a possible circular dependency loop in sce-update.

I have duplicated the hang on "sce-import -d" which is probably where sce-update hung if I manually add an entry to a .dep file that creates a circular dependency.  I tried to create a circular dependency with sce-import  but it would not let me even if the offending entry in a dep file was 2 or 3 dep files deep.  So as long as sce-import is used to create the dep files, it should not result in problems.  Please understand that manually created dep files can result in errors.
