Description of problem:
I've noticed that occasionally yum-updatesd claims there are updates available but when running 'yum upgrade' I'm told there's no updates available. I realise this is a bit thin but is there some way of increasing the verbosity of yum-updatesd so that it can provide a bit more information about this package it claims to have found? 

Monitoring the system dbus, I see the following message:

signal sender=:1.129 -> dest=(null destination) path=/UpdatesAvail; interface=edu.duke.linux.yum; member=UpdatesAvailableSignal
   string "3"

But then running yum yields:

[djuran@a88-115-207-64 iso]$ sudo yum upgrade
Loading "priorities" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading "changelog" plugin

73 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Note that pupplet claims there are updates available
2. 'yum upgrade' claims everything is up to date

You can run yum-updatesd with -f to get it to run in the foreground and then it
will print out some more bits
Comment 2 David Juran 2007-03-20 05:50:08 EDT
After starting the yum-updatesd in the foreground, it stopped reporting updates
being available. I then restarted it as a daemon and still it (correctly) didn't
report any updates being available. Does this make any kind of sense to anyone? 

Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2007-08-03 15:45:26 EDT
yes, if you assume it is broken :)

If you can - try yum-updatesd from rawhide and reopen if this bug doesn't go away.
