In the Kubuntu KDE update program "Entdecken" (discover?), when new updates are available, there is a general description of the program but i cannot find the update message, showing what the update fixes. Where can i find it?

  • Install synaptic : sudo apt-get install synaptic ... and open synaptic , click the button "Mark All Upgrades" , and you get a list of all the packages with an update. Jun 19, 2016 at 14:29
  • @ cucujoida: Do you mean something like the "changelog" of the package in question? Jun 26, 2016 at 12:22
  • @ellisistfroh: exactly. How can i change the default discover updater to plasma-discover-updater?

If you are using the plasma-discover-updater (german:Aktualisierungsverwaltung) it is enough to tick on the package-name in the list, then the "changelog" of the package appears in a given field.

  • How can i switch from the default discover updater to plasma-discover-updater and set the latter as the default?

The old muon-updater has been superceded by plasma-discover-updater. If you ensure that plasma-discover-updater has been installed, you can uninstall muon-updater if you still find that in your system.

I hope this helps.

  • Hello Valorie, plasma-discover starts for updates, plasma-discover-updater remains unused by automatic updates. Therefore, the changelog of the updates is invisible.
