Description Pablo Rodríguez 2010-06-21 06:07:50 UTC
gnome-packagekit-2.30.2-1.fc13 is not able to install any package collection.

Select the package, apply selection, gpk-application starts and seems to run, but after a second it stops, the package is selected to be aplied again.

Is there any way to do this through the CLI?

Thanks for your help,


Pablo

I had the same problem on one hardware platform with F13 trying to use the System Administration Add/Remove Software function, the same install worked fine on a different platform.  Reinstalling didn't help. This workaround worked for me:

[root@LIN2 Mikey]# yum remove PackageKit gnome-packagekit
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
...
Complete!
[root@LIN2 Mikey]# yum install PackageKit gnome-packagekit
Loaded plugins: presto
Setting up Install Process
Resolving Dependencies
....
Complete!

Add/Remove now works correctly.

I'm seeing the same behaviour in F14 (late in the F14 Alpha timeframe).  I've got gnome-packagekit-2.31.91-2.fc14.x86_64 installed.  I haven't tried uninstalling and re-installing PackageKit yet.

Oops!  Please ignore comment 2, I commented on the wrong bug.  :-$

I'm getting this problem in a fresh F13 install, but may have found a cause.

It seems that (for me, at least) the "Educational Software" meta-package is failing. No error message is given by the GUI, but if I run 

gpk-application -v

then select the Education package, and click "Apply", the CLI returns the following:

 - failed to install packages: could not do simulate: No packages were found in the education group for education-()meta.


If I select multiple packages, including the Education package, the described behaviour occurs.

Deselecting the Education package causes the software to behave as expected.

Further research suggests this is probably a duplicate of Bug 589119.
