Standard set up - yes, try anything please. This situation may take a while to pinpoint. There's no 'bug' as such otherwise the app would crash, so it's leaving no trace of a fault. Very tricky.

Just to confirm, I ran the Yad version update this morning and it appears the overall process has the same cosmetic quirk as with the Zenity code.

After clicking to approve the listed updates, the 'downloading progress' window appears but self closes almost immediately. The expected 'installing progress' window does not appear but after an appropriate time the 'updates completed' window does appear.  Reviewing the log at this point reports the update required 37.6MB download.

I'll try to recall and revert my desktop tweaks and report any changes.

Thanks for reading.

Hi @Jerry  I have observed this behaviour myself but because I generally update via the terminal I have ignored it.
Since others have reported this I've done some tests to try and find the problem.

Computer   Dell Inspiron M5040
Processor   AMD E-450 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
Memory   3632MB (635MB used)
Machine Type   Portable
Operating System   Linux Lite 4.4

Starting with a clean Linux Lite install on first boot I created a restore point using Timeshift before doing anything.
From the Welcome dialog I click on the updates and enter my password, then:

Observations:
progress dialog for updating sources appears and is then replaced with available updates list dialog.
clicking on updates button starts process
downloading updates dialog appears briefly before disappearing.
there is no on screen indication of anything happening, in fact it is only the "hdd activity led" on the front of the laptop that indicates something is going on.
the next dialog to appear is the "updating boot configuration, Please wait ....." and then updates completed dialog and option to view the updates log.

After doing a system restore with Timeshift I changed lite-updates with the one posted by Jerry using yad, and repeated the above with the exact same observations.

I did a system restore once more and did one more test. I started lite-updates from the terminal. The exact same thing happened as per the dialogs, but the terminal showed an error:

Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/lite-updates
awk: cmd. line:1: (FILENAME=- FNR=82) fatal: division by zero attempted
Gtk-Message: 12:15:17.164: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
File does not exist

The awk message came up when the downloading dialog disappeared.
The GTK message appeared when the updating boot configuration dialog appeared followed by the file does not exist and then the updates completed dialog.

I hope this helps in finding the problem.

Thanks @DeepThought that should actually help me sought this out :)
Please keep that test machine the way it is and I'll be in touch with you to try some things, if you don't mind.

Hi @Jerry  No problem, the machine has been restored back to it's original zenity version of lite-updates, but simple enough to change to the yad version if needed :)

Hi @Jerry I added set -xv to lite-updates, just before the variables are declared and ran the script.
I have attached the terminal output.
The awk error appears at line 711
Hope this helps

Ok, thanks to @DeepThought we may be one step closer. What I need from folk in this thread and from any others that experience this issue is what CPU they are running.

Just run:

Code: [Select]
inxi -C
from your Terminal, and paste the output here. Cheers :)
