@Derek_ I'd like to know the spec of the computer you made that recording on, looks like it was really struggling. Cpu, ram, gpu etc.

Hiya, this one is an i3-2310 with 4gb RAM.

note this has happened on a few other machines of varying specs (mostly lower than this one). But all have 4gb RAM.

Try running lite-updates from the Terminal and record that.

Locked, presumably the other updates i ran a short while ago are still in progress (there would have been a lot - i haven't touched the laptop since January). I have not yet received advice that they have completed.

It would have been better if i thought to do the terminal load the first time :/

You'll need to keep your computer running until updates in the background finish or you'll end up in a mess with unfinished packages, keep monitoring the process via htop.

It ultimately did pop up with the notification that all was done, and asked if i would like to reboot (which i did).

But yes, no notification of the updates in progress. I have to prep this machine for donation. Hopefully you have what you need, but if you still want, next time around i'll run lite-updates from the terminal and record it to show. But that might be a while again.

I can't replicate it, and there's no record of zenity behaving in this way that I can see, therefore there's not a lot to go on.

It looks a lot different yes, but I don't want that to be the focus here. I need to see if it's just Zenity doing this, one way to test is with another frontend. Back up your existing lite-updates file first (/usr/bin/)

  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • Kernel: 5.x

On the 4.0 machine, if I watch carefully, the 'Downloading - please wait' window appears but it self clears very quickly (blink and you'd miss it).
This is the case even when there is a significant download e.g. a new version of Firefox.
I've not seen an 'installing' window and nothing appears to be happening until the 'updates completed successfully' window pops up.


Yup. That's it.


Me Too! 

I don't have time to get into this topic on any technical level, but I was moved to post here as I was somewhat taken aback at the smhardesty response to Derek's reasonable enquiry. I had the same issue on moving from 3.8 to 4.0, on 2 laptops, ie the updates window disappeared immediately after updating started. I'm not getting any younger and I could be liable to forget it's updating and power down for the night!

It's not a case of asking for an extra feature on LL - it clearly was there before 4.x.  And I do recall mention of it on the release announcement thread for 4.0, so it was missed by at least one person at that time.

Anyway, a small relatively point on a wonderful OS, and a normally very polite and non-judgemental forum.

Thanks Jerry and the team!

Bugger. I forgot to backup the lite-updates file first. Mind you, it was a brand new fresh install on a different laptop. If necessary i can rebuild it, run the update the normal way to check its behaviour. And also do it your way - per instructions next time ;)

The other machine i was working on has already gone to a new home.

I wasn't completely sure what to do, so this is what i did:
created a plain file and pasted in your code
named 'update.sh'
set permissions to allow it to execute
ran 'sudo ./update.sh

Whereupon i was prompted to continue or cancel. I continued and the 'Downloading package(s)' dialogue stayed visible, then 'Installing and configuring package(s)'... and i'm going to bed. :)

Yeah, it's pretty cool how a maintainer jumps on the forum and helps diagnose it. Don't find that every day :)

Three people have reported the same thing in this thread now, should we raise a proper bug? I suppose we're deep here now, might as well see where the problem is if we can.

I hope the other two who have reported it also do so.

I put what fle to edit in my post, again: Back up your existing lite-updates file first (/usr/bin/)
then overwrite the contents of /usr/bin/lite-updates

Changed the lite-updates file to the Yad version code as suggested in post #20 on my version 4.2 machine, but as I'd already updated that day, there were no further updates to install.

When I ran updates on boot up this morning, it picked up the requirement for some new files related to gimp.

I clicked to accept the updates and the behaviour appeared to be the same as with the original Zenity code, i.e. I think the 'downloading' window popped up very briefly, there was no 'installing' window, but an 'updates completed' window appeared after completion.

I'll monitor the next few updates to confirm this is happening, but on first view, Yad seems to be the same as Zenity with regard to the topic.

Thanks for reading.

@stevef wait until you get a big list of updates, and there should also be at least one big file in the updates. Even if you have a large list of updates, they could all be small file sizes and if you have broadband, the downloading is going to be very quick anyway.

Will do.  I understand the flat number of file updates is not a reliable indicator of size of download.  That said, according to the updates log this morning the 3 files required for the gimp updates 'Fetched 18.7 MB in 37s (505 kB/s)' so if there was a 'downloading updates' window (on top) while this was going on, I doubt I'd have missed it particularly as I was looking out for it with the Yad version.

This seems to be a edge case and is largely cosmetic.  I wonder if it is related to some tweaks (perhaps to desktop settings) that only a few people happen to have in place which causes the windows non-appearance.

I've not noticed any other problems, but would it be worth reverting my desktop settings to a standard set up ?

Thanks again.
