Description Andre Robatino 2013-10-08 17:29:35 UTC
Description of problem:
In 20 Beta TC1 and 20 Beta TC2, on the install DVDs, under the "Installation Source" spoke, the "Don't install the latest software updates" box is unchecked by default, and if you check it, exit and reenter the spoke, it's unchecked again. It seems to install without downloading updates, but I don't know what repo(s) it's looking at. (Is it just stable updates, which are currently empty?)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 20.21-1 and 20.22-1

Comment 1 Andre Robatino 2013-10-09 00:57:47 UTC
The same thing happens with the netinst. If you check the box, exit and reenter the spoke, the box is unchecked again.

Comment 2 Andre Robatino 2013-10-11 00:07:39 UTC
Proposing as Beta Freeze Exception. Even if you manually check the box, it's unchecked again on reentering the spoke, so you can't tell what setting is actually being used.

Comment 3 Andre Robatino 2013-10-13 11:29:19 UTC
Just for reference, by default the box is supposed to be checked on the DVD and unchecked on the netinst. Also, in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1016927 Dan Mashal says that on the netinstall, checking the box has an effect, so checking it must be doing something, even though it's unchecked again if you reenter the spoke. So presumably the updates come from whatever repos are enabled by default at the time (fedora and updates-testing now, fedora and updates later).

Comment 4 Brian Lane 2013-10-14 16:55:21 UTC
Note that we currently don't have any updates.

Comment 5 Brian Lane 2013-10-14 16:59:40 UTC
Although I see we have repodata so, something is odd.

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2013-10-16 17:10:57 UTC
IIRC, I filed a bug back in F19 timeframe to make that checkbox use the appropriate repos at the appropriate times, so it ought to be doing the right thing (aside from *this* bug).

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2013-10-16 17:30:24 UTC
Discussed at 2013-10-16 freeze exception review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-10-16/f20beta-blocker-review-4.2013-10-16-16.02.log.txt . Accepted as a freeze exception issue: this is a fairly significant control and should work for Beta if possible, but if the fix is too intrusive, we'd better not take it.

Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2013-10-26 01:10:22 UTC
anaconda-20.25.4-1.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.

Comment 9 Andre Robatino 2013-10-26 16:55:34 UTC
This particular problem appears fixed in 20 Beta TC6 (anaconda-20.25.4-1). The "Don't install the latest software updates" box is unchecked by default on the netinst and checked by default on the DVD, and if you check/uncheck it and exit and reenter the spoke, it stays in the same state. I can't tell if it's actually downloading updates, but at least it looks normal.

There is a different issue, though. On the DVD, if you enter the "Installation Source" spoke and change the installation source to "On the network", then exit and reenter the spoke, it changes back to "Auto-detected installation media". Should I file a separate bug for that?

Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2013-10-26 17:20:14 UTC
Yes, I think you should. Thanks!

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1023725 (on any install image, when entering "Installation Source" spoke, selection is always the default, even if previously changed)

I'm not sure whether to propose this as a Freeze Exception, since it's an old bug, and it may be more obvious during the install what the actual installation source is, as opposed to whether updates are being downloaded.

Comment 13 satellitgo 2013-10-27 13:10:01 UTC
Appears fixed in TC6 f20 Beta TC6 x86_64 DVD
Checkbox is checked by default and stays checked on revisit to spoke

Comment 14 satellitgo 2013-10-27 19:46:39 UTC
Causes "error checking software selection" in software spoke in F20 DVD x86_64 with box checked by default. Sugar installs fine if unchecked ?  due to unsatisfied known sugar application dependency  on DVD that is fixed on updates ?

Comment 15 satellitgo 2013-10-27 19:47:34 UTC
This is f20 TC6 DVD

Comment 16 Andre Robatino 2013-10-27 19:50:17 UTC
That's probably https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1023657 (repoclosure failure on 20 Beta TC6 DVDs (sugar-write)) and not related to this bug.

Comment 17 Fedora Update System 2013-11-05 03:38:30 UTC
anaconda-20.25.4-1.fc20, pykickstart-1.99.44-1.fc20, python-blivet-0.23.2-1.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
