Puplet right-click -> refresh does not work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:50 EST
Description of problem:
Puplet refresh does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Let system run without logging out.
2. Wait until updates are available.
3. Right-click -> refresh puplet. Watch it tell you nothing is new.
4. Run "yum update". Notice that there are things that are new.
I've notice upon reboot when I log back in, I tend to be notified of new packages.
Puplet does not refresh.
New packages found.
Can you try stopping the yum-updatesd service, and then running it from a
terminal as root with:
And then see if there are any errors when you refresh?
No, there are no errors.
When I turned on my computer today, it said there were 3 package updates
available. I stopped yum-updatesd and ran it from a terminal as you suggested.
A refresh showed that there were still 3 packages available. No errors were
reported in the terminal.
A "yum update" from another terminal revealed that there were 12 packages
available for update.
A refresh of Puplet show 3 packages available.
I also tried killing Puplet and restarting it and it still reports 3 packages.

screenshot of bad behaviour
Exiting Puplet and restarting it still shows that I have no updates. Running
Pup shows that I have 10 updates.
$ rpm -qf `which puplet`
With updated yum-updatesd and pirut packages currently in rawhide, the behavior
is far more solid. The set will be pushed back as an F7 update soon
