I'd suggest to keep installers out of SUMo list of software (but to focus more on executables)
Thank you Kyle, I'll absolutely do that when it comes time to reinstall my OS, and I'll think about taking on that project on my existing installation.

Re: Differences: Remove v. Ignore/Check v. Scan

Naturally, when I did a Scan then a Check, I had many updates ID'ed. However, even though I either did the updates, Ignored, or Skipped forever... On multiple subsequent Checks more, mostly new, updates were ID'ed on each new Check. I guess there must be a reason. (One thing about my setup is that (...

Re: Differences: Remove v. Ignore/Check v. Scan

One more thing I was reminded of after I ran a Check (a mistake I think, I'll run a Check again after the Scan I'm running now): Often SUMo tells me of an Update, but when I go to the manufacturer's download page the Update isn't available . For example, during the Check I just ran by mistake, SUMo ...

Oops, thank you very much Kyle, I see I need to remove most everything from my Ignore list!

Re: Differences: Remove v. Ignore/Check v. Scan

Ignore : This item will disappear definitively (Ignored items list can be edited from action menu) Does "Ignore" only ignore (A) the specific update version, or (B) all update versions, of a given software title? I've been assuming A; if B I'm not sure what to do, because... I often get Updates ide...

Thank you very much, Kyle! I'm impressed by your responsiveness.

Your reply prompted me to try right-click: I never saw those options before!

Differences: Remove v. Ignore/Check v. Scan

I'm unsure of some distinctions. 1. When do I Remove vs. Ignore? For example: When SUMo suggests an update I've already installed? Or that I just don't want to install? 2. I see that when a new version of SUMo comes out, it wants to Scan. Until another new version comes out, can I simply Check inste...

Re: Suggestion: Check for SUMO update first?

I joined to address this, but I see there's a Pro version that auto-updates, so perhaps I can assume that with Pro, it will not check for updates to my software programs both before and after it auto-updates? I've got an old PC (because I'm on a fixed disability income), so the processing time to do...
