Update notifier doesn't refresh


#1

The update icon in the tray still shows updates, even after updating. It will stay that way for days, unless I reboot or log out and back in. It will say I have updates, when I click it it checks and says there are no updates, but it continues to show that I do have updates waiting. Not earth shattering, but kind of annoying since I never really know if I do or not. Hate to log in and out all the time since that crashes Plasma.


#2

That is an upstream issue, we have the same problem in the Rolling Edition, hitting “check for updates” again fixes it.


#3

Ok, but hitting “check for updates” again does not fix it for me. No matter how many times I do it. The only way to clear it for me is to log out and back in.


#4

That is strange, the Ubuntu/Debian version does use a different backend for packagekit though.


#5

Maybe there is a hold package.
Can you check inside a terminal by running

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
You don’t necessary need to install those updates but it will list hold packages which might be useful.


#6

Does this same issue cause the update app to always show that only milliseconds have passed since the last check for updates? It always says a number in milliseconds no matter how much time has elapsed. Probably would be better to have second granularity versus millisecond also.


#7

I think this is another issue.


#8

I didn’t see anything held.

The following packages will be upgraded: expanding-icons-taskmanager initscripts libssl1.0.0 libssl1.0.0:i386 openssl sysv-rc sysvinit-utils unattended-upgrades 8 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.


#9

I can also confirm this.


#10

Is there still no fix for this?
