Description Doug Stewart 2003-10-22 19:58:46 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701

Description of problem:
Rawhide downtime has caused a nasty user-unfriendly condition to crop up in
up2date.  When a repo can't be reached, a mess of Python errors are spewed to
the terminal and up2date-gnome proceeds to "Packages Marked to Skip" dialog, yet
the progress dialog just hangs indefinitely.

Such a condition should produce a dialog similar to the one that up2date
produces when no updates are available.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run up2date when main yum repo is unavailable
2. Watch for Python errors and lack of dialog
3. Rinse, repeat

Actual Results:  Nasty Python messages written to terminal, no dialog produced.

Expected Results:  A dialog informing the user of something to the extent of
"I'm sorry.  I can't reach that repository" should be printed and no Python
errors should go to STDOUT/STDERR.
