Bug Description

Resuming the update puts it back to the percentage it had before pressing pause. I'd expect that pause only pauses the update, but progress would remain visible.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareUpdates#pausing-mobile>: "If you choose “Pause” during a download or an app installation, the update should pause and return to its idle presentation."

Can you attach a screenshot? Per spec, a paused update shouldn't have a progress bar at all. This isn't clear, though, and I realize now that I hadn't specified how to resume it.

Specification updated. <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareUpdates?action=diff&rev2=176&rev1=175> Pausing should return an update to its original presentation, which doesn't have a progress bar at all.

What exactly means "idle" in this context? Not showing any progress bar at all?

Thomas, yes. It's the "None of the above" state in <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareUpdates#Presenting_an_individual_update>.

Thanks for clarifying. Just wondering, this appears then to users as if the download has been cancelled, so either we really cancel instead of pause or we have another state saying "resume"?

The button is labelled "Pause" to reassure you that the partial download won't just be discarded, especially if it's a large one nearly finished. But after that, I don't think there's any particular reason to distinguish between a paused update and a never-started one. If you wait so long that an even newer version of the software becomes available, the download will start from scratch anyway.

Diego, "fix commited" looks wrong there since there is no merge proposal with a fix for that nor a fix commited in the vcs. If you have local work to address the bug then maybe "in progress" would fit better?

is that still an issue? seems to work fine here

Well, it pauses now and keeps showing the percentage, but that is not according to latest design spec as mentioned above by mpt.
