From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020823 Netscape/7.0 Description of problem: If there isn't any packages available to download and I click the forward button, I get an error message telling me that I have to select a package to continue or click cancel to exit. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Type up2date 2. You should have all the latest updates installed before you continue 3. Click the forward button 4. Bingo! Actual Results: Prompted with an Error message Expected Results: I shouldn't be prompted with an error message when I have all the latest updates. If there isn't any packages available to update, it should automatically move me onto the next page and tell me that I have all the latest updates at this time and have the ability to click finish. Instead, it gives me an ugly error message telling me to click cancel. It isn't mission critical but it would be a user friendly improvement. Additional info:

What is the version of the up2date package that you have? I have the following: $ rpm -q up2date up2date-3.0.7-1 When my machine is fully up2date, it simply pops up a dialog box that says "You're up2date" (more or less) - click OK and then up2date disappears. So... wfm.

I have up2date version 3.0.7-1 My Error messages says: You must select at least one package. If you dont wish to update any packages, press the "Cancel" button to exit Update Agent. I don't get anything that says I am up2date, just a blank page with no packages to install. What I'm talking about is the "packages to be updated" page, not the packages to be skipped page. I skip the kernel package and kernel-source package because I am fine with the current kernel. Even if I skip the kernel packages I still shouldn't get that type of error message because I skipped the packages on the "Packages Flagged to be Skipped" page. If I need to have the kernel packages updated as well to get the popup message that say I am up2date that is fine but the error message is still incorrect because I flagged them to be skipped. It should say "There is no packages to be updated at this time" or something of those lines.

One more thing, it should say Alert! not Error! It isn't really an error to be called an error. Well, that is my opinion anyways. Cheers!
