#443 closed System Defect (fixed)

"System updates available" too aggressive.

Reported by: eadler Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: PC-BSD Updater Version: 9.0-RELEASE
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


During the download phase or install phase of an update the message "system updates available" should stop showing up. Additionally as long as the update window is open the message should stop showing on the task bar.

The other issue is that the icon doesn't automatically change after an update is performed, even if there aren't any system updates available.

This should be updated, since it still applies to 9.0 Release.

Additionally: After the download is complete and when waiting for reboot to apply a system update, that update should no longer be offered in the update manager, or be listed as "pending".

We have added an option to the software to allow you to disable update notifications in update manager in the next snapshot. They will be left on by default.

The option to disable notifications is unrelated to this ticket.

I dont agree with the original bug report, that the tray icon just should dissappear while updating is happening. I like it keeping it's current status, until the updates are 100% done.

We did fix the issue where the tray now refreshes after doing an update, so it correctly indicates that no more updates are available.

The tray icon also does show pending system "upgrades" now, if the system is waiting to be rebooted for it to continue. I will be adding this same functionality into the updater GUI as well though.

Perhaps the icon should indicate "installing" instead of remaining idle. I haven't been through an update since the behavior changed, so I'll have to confirm that it makes sense when I next see an upgrade available.

All the changes we are going to make currently to the updater have been added.
