Constant error at start

Hi! After the last general update and reboot, few problems have been ocurring. I’ve been able to solve most of them but this one is driving me crazy and maybe it’s something silly! Captura de pantalla_2020-05-04_09-23-16|657x500

I get this error every time the system starts

Does the eos-welcome screen come up when the system starts?
Edit: Like this?

Hi Rick! No, it doesn’t. Only the notification windows I attached

Do you have wifi? Maybe it’s not connected yet and needs a delay on the app so wifi is connected first.

eos-welcome --startdelay=5

The error is related to eos-update-notifier, not welcome

Oh…sorry you are right!

Sorry, Disregard my last post. I was thinking the welcome app but it’s the update notifier.
Edit: Not sure if it has a timer on that one or whether it’s another problem not reaching the site.

No problem. It’s ok. :slightly_smiling_face:

Here is the wiki on it.

It is failing at initializing? :thinking: Do you see output if you do eos-update-notifier -init ?

It used to be automatic and now it is not?

I don’t know to be honest. @manuel?

I did and this is the result I get:

Unit eos-update-notifier.timer could not be found

I’ve never seen it working before. It’s the first time this notification appears.

Maybe it’s installed but not started?
systemctl --user enable eos-update-notifier.timer
systemctl --user start eos-update-notifier.timer

Thanks for all @ricklinux

I’ll this commands, reboot and I’ll let you know the result

It’s what Initialize() function is supposed to do
among other things

Oh…i thought that would just report status?

I just went through mine and reset it all via the wiki and it’s working.
