A while ago, I got this error:
Accessing the Software Management Failed
System management is locked by the application with pid 17730 (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base).
Close this application before trying again.
Would you like to abort or try again?
What happened is that a terminal session that had YaST open got disconnected (don’t you love WiFi) while checking for updates.
I tried to re-login and re-check for updates and got this error.
Looking for process 17730 indeed revealed it was YaST:
snap:~ # ps 17730
PID TTY STAT TIME COMMAND
17730 pts/0 Sl+ 0:11 /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base online_update ncurses
A simple kill would get rid of that process:
sudo kill 17730
via: yast locked.

The zypper dup has installed MariaDB; now I need to figure out which dependency did this, as I’m not happy with the update message:
Message from package mariadb:
You just installed MySQL server for the first time.
You can start it using:
During first start empty database will be created for your automatically.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO SET A PASSWORD FOR THE MariaDB root USER !
To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:
'/usr/bin/mysqladmin' -u root password 'new-password'
'/usr/bin/mysqladmin' -u root -h misibook password 'new-password'
Alternatively you can run:
which will also give you the option of removing the test
databases and anonymous user created by default. This is
strongly recommended for production servers.

Inspired by CloudFlare Keyless SSL, I have this idea of using Diffie Hellman over WebSockets over a MittM based http proxy (which intercepts and decrypts HTTPS traffic) like mitmproxy (but them from a commercial vendor to inspect web traffic) to setup an encapsulated secure channel.
I know SSH uses Diffie Hellman to setup a secure channel over a binary TCP connection.
Binary communication over HTTP usually means WebSocket.
I don’t want WebSSH (which does use WebSockets, but is probably filtered by the MitM proxy anyway).
Maybe either of these open source tools will work:
If these don’t work, I need to do more research.
Since I use C# and .NET for much of my work, I started the WebSocket over HTTP C# query.

In case I get something similar to this again:

I have been noticing this for last few days but I thought systemd update should solve this (bug report was raised against systemd)
I updated system today (I have not given it a reboot yet) and I still see those logs.
Rebooting fixed this issue.
But I’m not sure about the cause.
