Unable to update docker images

I would say that this is related to the vmbackup plugin, since it's installing pigz

Feb  1 12:41:41 Tower root: | Installing new package /boot/config/plugins/vmbackup/packages/pigz-2.3-x86_64-1_slonly.txz

Remove the plugin and reboot and see if the problem continues.

Hmmmm 🤔. Okay, just did some checking and it looks like docker looks for pigz by default.

That said, when the plugin installs pigz, it does add /usr/bin/unpigz. Possibly your installation was corrupted somehow, since I just checked my dockers and two of them needed updated. I then ran Update All without issue.


It seems like reinstalling the plugin could fix the issue for you... unless I'm missing something?

Another option instead of (though that works as well) - go over to nerd pack, and manually re-enable/re-install pigz (or just manually pull it from the slackware repo).


I'm not super familiar with the plugin architecture, but if it allows you to do some checking/recording of packages it that it needed which were already available pre-install, that'd be cool... But then the nightmare of dependencies (i.e. what if they uninstall in a different order than install and leave behind components unintentionally) could be a freakin nightmare...
