Hi there.

I'm running Elementary OS Odin and in the system settings it tells me constantly that there are 3 components with updates totaling 393.6 MB. Other updates have come and gone easily but this remains, sometimes I press update and the system settings app quits. In Terminal sudo apt update or apt full-upgrade says nothing needs to be done. Any recommendations?

Thanks.

Depending on what needs updating you sometimes need to reboot.

I've rebooted numerous times, it just stays there.

I've found some details about the problem, the 3 items in question are all flatpak runtime:

org.freedesktop.platform
org.gnome.platform
org.kde.platform

you can try this in a terminal and see if the updates go away.
Code:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
if that does not do it then try this.

Sass:
sudo apt autoclean && sudo apt autoremove

as a last resort you can do this.
Code:
sudo rm -r /var/lib/apt/lists/*

Thanks for those but the b*stard upgrades survived all three suggestions.
