Screen from Apper when the updates stopped.
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 18 x86_64.
LVM: .5Tb. ODZ Vertex 4 SSD internal, 2X2Tb. WD red in Jbod on Mediasonic USB3box on end of USB3 powered hub to machine.
Asus Mb with 4 Mb. of Ram.
Much more hardware.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update all to update. incl many FFMPEG packages, and including Git and perl-git. Each of the last 2 will reject for lack of the other and stopp all other upgrades.
Machine is subsequently rebootable, but all USB devices and machine may have to be powered completely dead, pause for caps to discharge, etc. then restart USB devices, reinitialise the JBOD (look for a few orange flashes from the HD lights then quiet before going on), then continue boot. Note speed with which the Fedora bubble fills up to light. system may fill slow, then stop at [CTRL-D]. then press[CTRL-D] and watch speed of bubble fill, it may be much faster (good) then mouse cursor appears and finally login.
This sequence is usually a good boot, but the updates will happen subsequent to such a boot.
"This on really needs to "git" fixed!
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
