Description Will Woods 2015-08-11 14:46:15 UTC
Currently, if another process sets up an Offline Update, pk-offline-update may run first; if it does, it deletes the symlink, then fails to read the (missing) transaction file, then exits unsuccessfully, rebooting the system.

This messes up the other process (e.g. dnf system-upgrade) pretty badly.

As per the discussion here:

  http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/systemd-devel/2015-July/033623.html

the recommended behavior is to check to see if the update was prepared by this tool, and if not, exit quietly.

Comment 1 Will Woods 2015-08-11 15:04:31 UTC
Patch sent upstream:

https://github.com/hughsie/PackageKit/pull/78

This will require backporting to F22 and F21.
