Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2012-07-20 08:22:07 EDT
Can you try "pkcon get-updates" on the command line please. Thanks.
Comment 2 John Pitney 2012-07-21 11:00:16 EDT
I gave it a try, as I'm having the same issue here.  

$ sudo pkcon get-updates
[sudo] password for john:

Comment 3 Dean Brettle 2012-10-18 02:52:44 EDT
I had the same problem. Running 'sudo yum makecache' fixed it.
Comment 4 "FeRD" (Frank Dana) 2012-11-01 08:54:09 EDT
'sudo yum clean metadata' also proved effective at clearing this error, and caused gpk-update-viewer to trigger downloads of everything necessary.

Perhaps-interestingly, the reported error was showing up for me even after a successful 'sudo yum check-update' run, until the '...clean metadata'.

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 15:22:34 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
