Featured in Discover (KDE Plasma) not working

Devuan 4.0

Message reads:

Unable to load applications.
Please verify Internet connectivity.

Is this a sources.list issue?

I have REM'd out the line pointing to the CD as I have done with previous installs for Devuan 3.0 and 3.1.1

Re: Featured in Discover (KDE Plasma) not working

Discover just isn't working at all. When I enter the root password to edit the settings it falls over (cannot access settings). If I select 'Ignore' it states I should start Discover with the command:

kdesudo

which results in no such command.
Have repositories changed?

Currently I have:

Chimaera (main)
Chimaera security (main contrib non-free)
Chimaera updates (main contrib non-free)

I have unchecked the 'Sources'

Re: Featured in Discover (KDE Plasma) not working

Can't comment on Discover and KDE, not my DE.

But what hits my eyes is that for Chimaera you just have enabled main. And for the others also contrib nonfree. Does not make sense. Either all in or all out.

That is all that is available to me - should I keep the 'sources' in? Guess it's because I have come from a different GNU/Linux prior to Devuan.

Thanks for your time and input.

Re: Featured in Discover (KDE Plasma) not working

FWIW here is my sources.list:

$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-security main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-updates main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/devuan chimaera-proposed-updates main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-backports main non-free contrib

Looks like I wasn't clear enough. You wrote:

Chimaera (main)
Chimaera security (main contrib non-free)
Chimaera updates (main contrib non-free)

This is inconsistant. Your entries in the sources.list should read either full blown:

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-security main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-updates main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/devuan chimaera-proposed-updates main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-backports main non-free contrib

which I would suggest or

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main 
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-security main 
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-updates main 
deb http://deb.devuan.org/devuan chimaera-proposed-updates 
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-backports main 

if you don't want non-free packages or packages with other licences on your computer. It simply has to be all the same through the lines. As long as you do not compile your own packages, you do not need the sources.

Further readings at: https://www.devuan.org/os/packages

I hope I have made my point clear now.

Re: Featured in Discover (KDE Plasma) not working

My posting related to what shows in Discover | Settings, which is what I posted, not the sources list which does indeed give the full addresses as in your post. Perhaps I should have stated that in the first place. Thanks for your replies everyone.

Same problem here.
I can update my system by using terminal and tiping "sudo apt update && sudo apt ugrade" or by using Synaptic, so the issue isn't from sources.
How can I fix Discover?

Thanks a lot and sorry for my bad english.
