Description Tomasz Sałaciński 2008-06-19 13:12:38 UTC
Description of problem:

After I've tried to upgrade my system, while PackageKit was downloading updates,
I've lost my internet connection for few seconds. Then, packagekit was stuck on
downloading a package, when I've pressed "Cancel" it's stuck on cancelling the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

PackageKit 0.1.12

How reproducible:

Actually, I don't know. This is what I did, I don't know if it will happen again.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download some updates with PackageKit
2. Unplug the network cable (not disconnect with NetworkManager, just unplug the
3. Try to cancel the download
Actual results:

PackageKit is stuck on "Cancelling"

Expected results:

PackageKit should cancel the download.

Additional info:

The screenshot is available here:

The first entry that says "Uzyskiwanie aktualizacji (Anulowanie)" means
something like "Fetching updates (Cancelling)". Then it says "Refreshing package
cache memory (Waiting for other tasks to complete" and again "Fetching updates
(Waiting for other tasks to complete)".

I haven't rebooted, though, but it's stuck for 13 days, so I don't think it will
ever start going. I don't know if it's fixed after reboot.

Ok, sorry for that, it's fixed after rebooting the machine. Cheers.

If this ever happens again, can you grab the output of pkmon please. Thanks!

Comment 3 Tomasz Sałaciński 2008-07-02 09:02:44 UTC
Ok, it happened again, unfortunately. I rebooted recently, then I was doing a
lot of stuff with yum and rpm (basically, I removed the Firefox package by using
rpm -e and installed Epiphany, Midori and Compiz packages with yum). And before
I did that, packagekit gave me some updates (listed below).

PKMON output:

Notice that there is nothing that says about removing firefox here.

I'll try not to reboot, so if you want me to help you finding what is going on,
just post a reply.

Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2008-08-18 09:09:50 UTC
Right, these sort of bugs should be fixed with PackageKit 0.2.x, which are in fedora-updates. Please re-open if you can reproduce with 0.2.x. Thanks.
