[Zorin16] Software store is showing connection as metered when its not[solved]

Im currently connected via wifi to my Galaxy s7, and the software store is displaying "Automatic Updates Paused"

clicking more info tells me that my connection is set to metered

i opened settings and it shows the connection is not set to metred i tried toggling it on and off to see if that helps

ive done some googling and found the nmcli connection command which gave me this output nmcli connection
AndroidAPC64C 57d27d07-e240-427a-b399-8b121f1c6b07 wifi wlp2s0
Wired connection 1 60fb9e67-7b05-3bcd-8a2f-46ff42a89145 ethernet --
WLC-EXT 84b54fba-2295-4949-903e-52c715ad9dd9 wifi --

with nmcli -f connection.metered connection show 57d27d07-e240-427a-b399-8b121f1c6b07

outputting connection.metered:no

so im not sure how to proceed any help would be greatly appreciated

It is not that difficult :slight_smile:

While there is always someone who knows more than you, there is always someone who knows less than you.

Visit the forum often and share your knowledge whenever you can :heart:

that worked :smile: just had to replace the "Galaxy/ A71BD53" with the Name from nmcli connection
