"Updates available" notification icon appears during OS upgrade

Bug #144427 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas on 2007-09-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

Ubuntu 7.04, all updates installed

1. Run "update-manager -c -d".
2. Click "Upgrade".
3. Watch during the "Modifying the software channels" section.

What happens: The orange star icon appears, and a notification bubble telling you about "Software updates available" and that you should "Click on the notification icon to show the available updates".

What should happen: The icon and bubble should not appear, because I'm already in the process of installing those updates.

 Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

I think this happened to me when updating to 9.04. I am not sure how to recreate it now that I am updated :-\.

I similarly encountered this bug when upgrading to Jaunty, but of course cannot reproduce now.

I think the issue is that the dist-upgrade sets the new repositories, and update-manager then sees all the new versions of packages and alerts you! When I canceled the upgrade at one point (and it set the sources back), the alert disappeared.

This happened again during my update to Karmic from Jaunty. See Screenshot.png
I believe I had _canceled_ the upgrade process once or twice (because I wanted to shutdown during the downloads).

Later during the upgrade...

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. I have done an upgrade from Lucid to Maverick and I did not see this phenomenon. Please update via http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ repost a detailed error report, and update the bug status. Thanks!
