Description Daniel Vrátil 2012-08-26 17:54:02 UTC
Description of problem:
When there are no updates available after "Check for new updates", Apper displays warning about last check for updates being too long ago instead of information that no updates are available.

When there are updates available, updating all packages and clicking "Check for new updates" will result in displaying the wrong warning as well.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install new system from network (so that it's up to date)
2. Start Apper
3. Click "Check for new Updates"
4. Wait for it to finish checking

Alternative steps to reproduce:
1. Downgrade any package
2. Start Apper
3. Click "Check fo new Updates"
4. Install available updates
5. Click "Check for new Updates" again
Actual results:
Apper says "Last check for updates was more then a month ago. It's strongly recommended that you check for new updates now"

Expected results:
Apper should say "No updates available"

Additional info:
This is a clean net-installation of Fedora 18 Alpha-TC3 with KDE

Confirmed on Fedora 18 Alpha (RC3), proposing as NTH as the warning is confusing -- user might read it as "no check for updates was done".

This seems to be fixed on my system:


Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2012-10-11 14:38:02 UTC
Dan, can you also confirm that this is fixed, so we can close it?

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2012-10-11 14:40:25 UTC
It's fixed for me too, I'll go ahead and close.  feel free to reopen if anyone does indeed still experience this after installing,

Comment 6 Martin Kho 2012-10-11 15:10:33 UTC

Yes, all messages are fine now. Just for my information: Is it right that 'logout' and 'reboot' instructions after e.g. kernel updates will be replaced by the new 'offline updates' feature?

Comment 8 Martin Kho 2012-10-11 16:00:03 UTC
Oh... Then I'll test a little further and see if reboot/logout instructions will ever appear. If not, I'll open a new report for that :-)
