That's interesting Jerry. Chances are there is an update that causing the issue perhaps? I have not debug it myself but I'm not experiencing the issue- maybe because I have not installed the latest updates





Worth debugging I guess.

Well, see if you can debug it on your install since you mentioned that you're also experiencing the issue.

I installed updates (few at a time) up until the latest lite-manual and lite-tweaks which I'm guessing were pushed no more than a couple hours ago, yet I cannot reproduce the issue :(
I did restart the computer too...

I was looking through the Zenity deps to see if one of those had contributed to the issue.
Whats strange is that this only affects some. I'd like to resolve this in case it goes global. I can send you my Yad fork of Install Updates if you want to have a play, improve it. Would not hurt to have an alternative sitting in the background, ready to go.

Jerry/Ralphy:  This morning I did regular Install Updates and got another Blank window.  So I carefully did change to script as per Jerry's post, but I find it does not execute properly for me - I get a brief flash of first update window then nothing.  Checking the /tmp file there were a lot of strange files/folders as expected which I deleted.  After generating a new Jerry script I tried again but with the same result.  So I reinstalled the regular updates.gui file and ran Install Updates again while watching the/tmp file as suggested by Ralphy.  Everything worked just fine this time, as experienced before by me on second attempt (as Blank window counts as first attempt) - installed updates and all /tmp updates files were deleted by the program correctly at end of the update process.  I ran another Install Updates and got correct UptoDate response.

In future I will open /tmp in Thunar before I run Install Updates to see what is different about the /tmp files when I get a Blank updates window.

If I can make any other useful contribution please let me know - I am retired so time is not an issue for me.  I have used Linux for some time but am a tinkerer rather than scripter.

So a week or so ago on the 64bit, I ran updates rebooted to a initramfs message. Now the HD maybe having issues so didnt give it too much thought. But past couple times running updates GUI doesn't display - Seems ok via terminal.

I tried updating scripts via the thread above but still no GUI display.
I may wind up replacing drive at some point.. But if I can test anything in the meanwhile...
