got a Fedora 9 indication that yum updates were available, but there were no updates
 
the little red popup window (packagekit) from the lower right showed yum updates

I did a yum update and no updates!

I tried again this morning and no updates

alan_ri 02-07-2009 02:40 PM

Did you tried from the terminal?That way we could see the errors.

landonmkelsey 02-07-2009 02:53 PM

there are no errors...just the usual message

LMKIII (root) ~ [1000]>yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update
LMKIII (root) ~ [1001]>

I have package kit set up to only notify.

I do therefore get the red window notifying me of updates.

I close it and switch to command line "yum update"

I thought that maybe the package kit software screwed up and installed the updates anyway.

I looked in the log "cat /var/log/yum.log" and no updates have been made lately.

Maybe somebody jerked the updates for some reason!

alan_ri 02-07-2009 05:48 PM

Did this method that you've used worked before?Packagekit is a complicated application so this problem could be caused by so many reasons.
What's the version of Pk?Lots of people reported many bugs for version 0.2.3.
Maybe you could remove PK and install yumex,just to see if the update process will work then,if so,few things would be clearer.
You could try:
Code:

yum clean all && yum clean metadata && yum clean dbcache && yum makecache && yum update
or
Code:

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db* && rpmdb -vv --rebuilddb
Maybe it would help.
Please post the output of
Code:

# gedit /etc/yum.repos.d

this worked:
yum clean all && yum clean metadata && yum clean dbcache && yum makecache && yum update

I had previously done a yum clean all to no avail...THANKS!

OK,but you should check that mirrors that didn't work,maybe they are not valid anymore.Also,livna repo has been merged to RPM fusion,so you should delete it from /etc/yum.repos.d.

John VV 02-07-2009 11:43 PM

delete it ONLY if you DO NOT HAVE libdvdcss installed
this one IS on livna

and every now and then package kit will glitch and think there are updates when there are not .
mostly a 64 bit update and you are on a 32 bit system , or visa/versa

landonmkelsey 02-08-2009 12:03 AM

delete it from this directory...right?

Only one package is on livna and that one want be much longer there as the people on the livna.org say.I guess,if necessary,manual update of one package would be OK.
edit> Yes,from that directory.

landonmkelsey 02-08-2009 12:04 AM

libdvdcss is NOT installed

so I can delete the file...right?
