Just installed current F18 stable (roughly) with gnome-packagekit 3.6.0-2.fc18. It correctly notified me that updates were available shortly after first boot, and opened up gpk-update-viewer to install them (I'm not sure if that's actually what we want any more, but that's a whole other bug report). I was able to install the updates successfully. However, when it was done, gpk-update-viewer didn't go away - it was still running, still showing a list of 118 updates (though I think the package versions disappeared), and still showing an active 'Install Updates' button. Clicking on that pops up an 'Operation was cancelled' error message.
to reproduce - just install current f18 from static media (not a netinst so you don't get all the updates as part of the install), log in to GNOME, wait for an update notification, click on it and install the updates, wait till the end, see what happens.
not a blocker, I don't think, but bad polish.
I ran into the exact same problem.
I can confirm that once the packages were installed, the package version (not the name or summary) disappears from the list.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '18'.
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 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 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, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
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.
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
