Description Stephen Gallagher 2009-05-08 09:52:14 EDT
Description of problem:
The update applet alerts the user that there are updates to install. I select "Update System Now" and it goes through the process and completely installs all updates. After it is finished, the applet remains visible and continues to report that updates are available.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for an available update (in my case, this happened just after installing the Fedora 11 Preview three days ago and again today when further updates became available)
2. When the update applet notifies you of available updates, select "Update System Now"
3. Once the process is complete, observe that the applet does not go away.
Actual results:
The update applet reports that updates are available (the same number it was reporting before the update was run). If you attempt to run "Update System Now", it reports that there are no available updates, but still does not remove the applet notification from the taskbar.

Expected results:
After completing the update, the notification area should be cleared of the available updates notification.

It's not quite a duplicate, as Bug 498709 states that it only happens when using yum from the commandline. My description above shows that it occurs when using the Software Update tool directly from the Update Applet.

If you wish to merge these two bugs and include that information, I'd be fine with that.
Comment 3 Yul Rottmann 2009-05-11 09:08:58 EDT
I'd say it's the same core problem. I can't put these two bugs together, so someone else would need to do this anyway. I'd say these two should be one bug with a note. :)

Same problem here with Update Applet 2.27.2. as of this morning. 

After updates complete, icon disappears, then reappears a few minutes later indicating updates are available.

I suspect that this is actually a duplicate of #492005

Can you try installing https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F11/FEDORA-2009-5750 and https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F11/FEDORA-2009-5748 and then reboot please. If it fixes things, please report that as positive karma for the update. Thanks.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
