Problem with automatic mintupdate check

Postby gtsit » Thu Nov 27, 2008 8:22 am

In mint 5 i saw that i didnt have updates for a month now. The update icon were checking for updates and it was saying that everything is ok. It seemed a little strange to me so i opened the mintupdate and did refresh. After this many updates appeared on my screen. I have to notice that i have checked to download all the levels of updates and make a check every 15 minutes. Why does it happen?? In ubuntu when i have an update ubuntu alerts me. In linux mint why it doesnt alert??

This is a bug in some versions of mintUpdate
I am not quite sure why but it does not "catch" the updates unless you open it so it goes into root mode
There is really no hurry with updates normally so open mintUpdate once in a while
The version in Felicia should behave nicely
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
