• Open Updates on logon before it first checks, fails to show updates

    Hi everyone.
    After my logon, if I open the updates program, it just shows an empty window. After a few seconds it shows the message that has updates, but the updates windows keeps blocked and does not show the updates.
    I have to close and reopen the updates.
    Anyone else experienced this? Where can I report this?

    Never seen that behavior. You may have a poor connection or poor mirrors.

    Which DE? And some more information about your machine to start finding reasons.

    sudo pacman -S inxi
    inxi -Fxxc0
  • @manuel said in Open Updates on logon before it first checks, fails to show updates:

    inxi -Fxxc0

    Output of inxi is below. I do have a fast ethernet connection 120Mbit/sec. I think that as it’s not finished to check for updates or is doing the check, if I open it, it stays kinda blocked, not showing anything. So I close it and open again and it works as expected.
    I have will reboot now after too many updates done because paman was missing and I did not updated it yesterday. Also I deleted by mistake the lightdm directory and my system went nuts. Somehow I managed to configure it back and now I have Cinnamon again but not all is as before.
    But hey, I’m a long time Windows user/programmer and I’m on Linux/Antergos only about 2 months now. Learning a lot and loving it.

  • Could not yet manage to replicate this, opened the updates soon as I logon and it opened paman normally. But I will try to do it everytime I reboot and if I found it again, I’ll try to replicate or understand why it was doing this. Thank you.

  • Haha! Catch it! It’s when you do double-click on the paman icon on the icon tray.

    If you press one click, it opens normal.

    If you double-click it opens but stays all black and shows nothing. The mouse keeps on “thinking” in circules.

    It has to be fast double-click. So how do I even try to report this? And where?
