Description Jens Petersen 2008-06-24 21:54:22 EDT
Description of problem:
I don't really understand why but I noticed that often gpk will not update
all available new packages at once.

How reproducible:
very often

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot rawhide and login
2. see and review updates in gpk
3. apply updates
  
Actual results:
3. some time later (varies from minutes to hours) gpk comes up and says
"look there are updates".  (I know the repo has not changed since it is
a local mirror which syncs daily.)

Expected results:
3. all available updates to be included in one go.

Additional info:
This does not happen with direct yum updates.
I am pretty sure it also affects F9 and has been happening since the F9 devel cycle.
Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2008-06-25 10:05:16 EDT
Does "pkcon update" include all the updates? After you've done that - does
"pkcon get-updates" print anything?
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2008-06-30 23:41:24 EDT
Hmm so I could be wrong now: I just tried in an install of rawhide from a tree
of 27June and it seems there were two packages uninstalled when I updated
to latest rawhide because of broken dependencies.

Is there some way for the UI to say these packages were installed and can't
be installed currently because of broken deps?

So now I am not sure if this is what I have been seeing all along, but
I think in the past it could not always have been broken deps for fedora updates.
I'll try to keep a eye on this going on and use pkcon.
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2008-06-30 23:44:32 EDT
Just to clarify, thanks I used pkcon to work out the above.  Though
I have noticed such bad deps through PK before specially with rawhide.

Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2008-07-04 06:08:07 EDT
Right, you should have gotton a warning about the packages in the final screen
of the update viewer. Could you try again and grab the output from "pkmon" and
"gpk-update-viewer --verbose" -- thanks.
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2008-07-17 04:30:24 EDT
I think we can probably close this for now since I am not seeing this problem
anymore
so I assumed it is already fixed.

I wonder if there is some way for the applet to wake up with desktop activitiy
faster -
it sometimes seems to take a long time, even hours, before notifying about
available updates?
Is that a related known issue?
