Description Andrew 2004-10-13 12:47:13 UTC
Description of problem: up2date states "Your system is fully updated. No new packages are needed." but Red Hat Network Alert Icon indicates that updates are available. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): rhnlib-1.8-6.p23.fc3 rhn-applet-2.1.11-1 up2date-gnome-4.3.40-1 up2date-4.3.40-1 How reproducible: Seems to be only when RawHide is being updated frequently, as during development of Fedora Core 3 Test 3 - Fedora Core 3 Final Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run Red Hat Network Alert Icon from System Tools 2. Right click and select Check for updates 3. Right click and select Launch up2date 4. Proceed to Channels dialog and click Forward Actual results: Headers are downloaded, message is displayed "Your system is fully updated. No new packages are needed." Expected results: List of packages to be upgraded, or package exceptions screen. Additional info: The Red Hat Network Alert Icon seems to disappear (crash?) from the panel after some time. It seems to coincide with when there are updates available (crashes overnight, so I can't confirm).

Up to a couple minutes ago I was getting the same "fully updated" message described above. I have noticed (yesterday as well) that if I wait some hours and do in /var/spool/up2date # rm -rf fedora-core-rawhide* that it seems to 'jumpstart' the process, and it proceeds to downloading the individual package headers.

I have also been getting this same problem however the packages are random (most recently firefox) I removed firefox-1.0-2.fc3.i386.hdr from /var/spool/up2date and it kicked off the updates. Not sure if I should have removed that file but it certainly did the trick.

up2date is no longer shipped with Fedora Core; it's functionality has been replaced by pup, found in the pirut package. The only fixes likely to be made to up2date in RedHat Linux and earlier Fedora Core versions are security fixes by Fedora Legacy. This does not seem to be a security bug, so I'm closing it. If the problem is appropriate to RHEL and occurs to a user there, it can be filed as such.
