"Update Mirrors" tab not working in Welcome app


I don’t seem to get the windows to choose mirrors (etc.) when I click on the “Update Mirrors” tab in Welcome app (v3.4.5-1). This is on a freshly installed EOS-KDE (yaaay :tada:). Running the app from terminal and then clicking on the tab doesn’t give anything.

If you need more info please let me know.

The issue was caused by reflector-simple not being installed. Installing these packages solved the issue:

[2020-08-21T15:05:12+0200] [ALPM] installed reflector-simple (1.4-1)
[2020-08-21T15:05:12+0200] [ALPM] installed geoip (1.6.12-2)
[2020-08-21T15:05:12+0200] [ALPM] installed geoip-database (20200721-1)

Thanks for the report!
This is due to the Welcome code reorganization. Now reflector-simple is an optional dependency for the welcome package.

Current ISO relies on welcome having reflector-simple as a “mandatory” dependency.
In the next ISO the plan is to add reflector-simple to be installed separately of welcome.


Thanks @manuel for the explanation. I sort of suspected that this might have something to do with the latest modification of the code. Now all is good here.
