gnome-software 3.30.5 release, together with new libappstream-glib build that has new API backported to fix version comparison in gnome-software.

  • Add a separate "Download" step for packagekit offline updates, so that "Restart & Update" is instant
  • Fix a version comparison issue that led to package updates sometimes showing as downgrades in the OS Updates section (this needs latest appstream-glib)
  • Show the refresh button when the updates page is in the failed state
  • Notify about offline updates only after they are fully downloaded

How to install

sudo dnf upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2018-b5a870dcff

I updated gnome-software and libappstream-glib and restarted. I downgraded gnome-calculator. Gnome-software updated updates and found update for g-c, but when I click on Download button it just blinks and nothing happens (even pkmon shows no action). So I can't update because there is still Download button and there is no 'Restart & update' button. With this version I'm unable to update.

The update works for me, however, this does not solve the bug #1640701. The button changed to Download, which makes sense, but then I still see no progress or activity and I do not know whether packages are being downloaded or gnome-software got stalled. @frantisekz told me he would see the progress bar under the Cancel button in adwaita dark theme. I did not see anything in standard gnome theme. This should be fixed to work for everyone.

Bodhi is disabling automatic push to stable due to negative karma. The maintainer may push manually if they determine that the issue is not severe.

Tested by installing "System Updates" through gnome-software. Hit the "Update" button, was presented with a cancel button with a progress bar underneath, indicating progress. Then was presented with a "Restart and Install" button, which worked as expected. No trouble found here, note that I am using the standard gnome theme.

The download phase bug has been fixed. The other mentioned bugs were not considered release blocking and will be fixed with a later update. +1, please submit stable

Note the change here broke the openQA test, which has subsequently failed for every update test run after this update went stable. @lruzicka, please remember to check for openQA test failures on updates like this, we want to keep the tests passing as much as possible. I will fix this one up.
