Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 594015
Anonymous "No more mirrors available" message
Last modified: 2011-06-27 12:30:35 EDT
A notification (without sender) popped up out of context, and clicking it showed the attached message box.
Please change the wording to make it clear
* Who / which application is showing this message
* What it is was trying to achieve when the problem appeared - and why it was doing that.
* Perhaps make it more clear that it was the "fedora" repository that failed.
* Perhaps give a hint how this check can be disabled.
I think that a window title and a line describing the context for the errors would be a fine and sufficient improvement. For eample:
PackageKit check for new updates failed.
Errors fetching updates for the repository 'fedora':
No more mirrors available
This bug has been triaged
Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team
We try to not pop up any messages like this with git master -- any chance you could give rawhide a go Monday and try to reproduce?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
