Description of problem:
The notification icon appeared, telling me updates were available. I clicked on

application to update with success, except for the one which is yum. When
clicking on the "yum" package, gpk-update-viewer crashed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. review updates
2. click on the yum package => crash
3. the notification icon remains, and I can do it again

it should display the yum package update details.

I didn't apply any of the updates in case you would want more informations.
Created attachment 307119 [details]
log obtained with -v option
