Description of problem:
Quite regularly (a few times per day), a new window pops up on my GNOME 3 desktop
titled "Software Updates". It contains the text:
Could not get updates.
Failed to process request.
When i press 'More details' it shows:
Operation was cancelled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 18 beta.
I don't know how to trigger it 'on demand' -- it simply occurs regularly.
Either the update should simply work -- or I should see an error message which contains more useful information. In particular: how to solve the problem.
I tried 'yum update' in the terminal and it worked like a charm.
