Description Peter H. Jones 2007-09-23 00:18:41 EDT
Description of problem:
Yum popup showed about 35 new updates on Sep 22. Of these, I chose only the
kernel. Since rebooting, I have not seen the popup. although the
System/Administration/Service shows yum-updatesd to be running.

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

How reproducible:
I now have this bug always, even if I choose to start the former kernel. It
would be difficult for me to get my system back to the way it was before the yum
problem occurred, and I don't know of a way to set the update server back the
way it was. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Chose only kernel update, rebooted, then closed popup by clicking on its X.
Popup does not return, even after reboot. Don't know if it's possible to
reproduce easily.
Actual results:
No more yum popups.

Expected results:
Yum popup should still occur, as I have yet to download all the updates 

Additional info:

I don't see yum-refresh-updatesd listed as a service, running or not. But
I presume "yum check-update" (see below) should work, daemons or not.

Tried yum check-update with debugging:
]# yum -d 20 check-update
Loading "refresh-updatesd" plugin
Yum Version: 3.2.5
COMMAND: yum -d 20 check-update 
Installroot: /
Reading Local RPMDB
Setting up Package Sacks
Running "postreposetup" handler for "refresh-updatesd" plugin

putting openssl in complex update
putting glibc in complex update
putting kernel in complex update

processing glibc.i686
processing kernel.i686
Running "close" handler for "refresh-updatesd" plugin

Haven't tried yum clean yet, willing to try if advised to.

I can download updates from
ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/i386/os/Packages ,
and install with rpm. But yum check-updates is not seeing there are new updates.

Last installed packages are:
