Gnome Software has been broken for me since I've upgraded to Fedora 29 beta. That was acceptable for a beta - but now that Fedora 29 is officially released, I think it's reasonable to expect software updates to work.
Here's a bug report I have filed upstream:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Gnome Software
2. Go to "Updates" tab
3. Click the refresh button
"Looking for new updates..." message is displayed forever. The "stop" button doesn't do anything
List of available updates should be displayed
This may be caused by slow/flaky internet connection - but of course, if that's the case, there should be an error message.
Same here in Fedora 30 with gnome-software-3.32.4-3.fc30.x86_64. Please change version to 30 since I can't do that.
This seems to be a bug of PackageKit. I filed a bug here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1767453
This message is a reminder that Fedora 29 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 29 on 2019-11-26.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '29'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 29 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 29 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-11-26. Fedora 29 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Still happening in Fedora 31. I haven't been able to update in probably a month now.
Gnome Software is stuck displaying "Checking...". Killing the process or rebooting doesn't help.
The "stop" button doesn't do anything, either. (One time, it was actually greyed out!)
