I have a relatively new installation of Fedora. I’ve been using it for about a week already.
Since yesterday I have a problem when trying to update y system. I tried to do it as usual with the Software Centre. Installed the updates but didn’t reboot instantlly. About 2 hours passed and suddenly there were more packages that had to be updated so I clicked install and restart.
When I did that, the computer rebooted but apparently the updates were never applied since the screen of “Installing updates” just lasted less than 2 second and the progress bar never got to the end.
Then I tried updating via Terminal with sudo dnf update but this message of shell level is too highg (1000) pops up on terminal and I have to Ctrl+C the PC so it doesn’t crash completely.
When I monitor the process with the System monitor, I can see the RAM usage increases constantly until y Ctrl+C.
I don’t know what I could do to fix this.
PS: Since my computer os a MacBook I was trying to install all drivers properly to make my FaceTime HD web cam work but had relative succes (it doesn’t work on Cheese or webcam apps but it works “fine” on Jitsi or Zoom). I don’t know if it had something to do with it.
This looks like your user is not part of the wheel group. Please ensure that your user is part of the wheel group before you try to modify your DNF installation as it may not be the problem at all, if your user is not a part of the wheel group (which gives sudo permission levels expected).
Shell Level identifies the level of sub-shell in a nested shell
This probably explains the high memory usage, apparently you have way too many nested shells, do you have any type non default configuration in your .bashrc? Do this clean install have a clean, new home directory?
