Does anyone know if Seti still having problems updating?
I just updated Linux Mint to 18.3 and BOINC is having trouble Updating.
Any Idea what is going on?

Sorry it has taken me this long to reply to your note. I upgraded from Linux Mint 18.2 to 18.3
BOINC 7.6.31 { x64}
wxwidgets version 3.0.2

My Icons either slow to start or not run at all. My Update manager crashes at least once a day.
I have to manually Update BIONC work (ready to report) in this version of Linux for some reason.
If I am unable to come up with a simple solution I may have to wait until SETI is down for maintenance --then format my hard drive--then re-install Linux 18.2. Then redo any work I lost.

I have installed Debian 9.3 with Cinnamon 3.2.7 and I've not had any work for a few days.
Communication keeps getting deferred.
Any ideas?

Try Mint 18.2 (Sonya). You will receive work--but you will have to update (files) the odd time.
I am not including Tuesday shut down with the update problem
Do not install Mint 18.3 to buggy

No work updates since my last post.
I've never had problems with Debian or Boinc before.
It looks like this will be dead for me for a while unless I use Vista for it. :/
