Description John Gotts 2013-10-27 14:35:12 UTC
Description of problem:
It's difficult to track the progress of the downloading that fedup does, and it is a bit misleading. The first download batch looks like it skips two packages. Once that batch is complete, the next download batch doesn't have a progress indicator at all, but at least the list appears to be sorted alphabetically. (Hmm, a-g has taken about a half hour. Maybe h-z will take another 2 hours.) The second batch of downloading looks like it grabs packages that are zero bytes in length. Indeed these all could be issues with yum and not fedup.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. fedup --network 19

Actual results:
(2500/2502): zlib-devel-1.2.7-10.fc19.i686.rpm           |  49 kB     00:00     
warning: /var/tmp/fedora-upgrade/fedora/packages/GConf2-devel-3.2.6-6.fc19.i686.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID fb4b18e6: NOKEY
GConf2-devel-3.2.6-6.fc19.i686.rpm                       | 110 kB     00:03     

What happened to 2501 and 2502? What are these additional hundreds of packages?

ghostscript-9.10-4.fc19.i686.rpm                         |    0 B     00:00    

ghostscript is zero bytes? That doesn't seem right.

Expected results:
fedup does appear to work very well. It would be great if every package being downloaded could be folded together into one accurately counted batch and take advantage of the progress indicator code.

Comment 1 Will Woods 2013-12-06 21:29:03 UTC
fedup-0.8.0 should be using the same download progress meter code as yum; in my testing it works just like you'd expect, with no skipped numbers etc.
