Description Jan Wagner 2004-10-09 16:31:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
When you select packages to flag for skipping, in the next step these
same packages are still added to the "available package updates" list.
Worse yet, they are set as selected, by default!

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date
2. 'select all' in the list of pkgs to skip, click next
3. notice packages in the 'available updates list' ;-)

Expected Results:  That packages that are selected to be skipped are
indeed skipped. Meaning also that they won't be displayed in the next
step, in the available updates list.

Additional info:

They are handled correctly in the Notification icon tool tip, as
"ignored" rather than "available", but they do still list for update
as noted here.

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 21:18:26 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Comment 3 John Thacker 2006-10-29 15:05:23 UTC
Closing per lack of response to previous comment.  If this still occurs on FC3
or FC4 and is a security issue, please assign to Fedora Legacy and the
appropriate version.  The bug could also be filed against RHEL if it is relevant

up2date has been replaced by pirut and pup in FC5 and FC6, the still fully
supported versions of Fedora Core, so this bug will not be fixed unless it is a
security issue.
