Update manager, authentication

Post by splashmirror » Mon May 28, 2018 2:58 am

1. when undergoing intermittent connections
the update manager & synaptic sometime say stuff along the lines of
"the package cannot be authenticated"
but if package-info is refreshed/update (sudo apt-get update) often then seems to temporarily somewhat resolve ..

2. also after updating it displays a dialog approx "task is finished"
but that dialog seems to keep synaptic instance [still running in background] until "okay" pressed thus cannot install software (locked-out)

3. update manager-update list, feature request:
save several recent ping-timing runs use an average/median/low(20-30%)percentile(extra weight to avoid slow times) to obtain a more representative mirror-speed selection ordering
  • ? add ability to export times for upload
  • time-of-day analysis and choose mirrors that are faster when internet there is faster
  • logging downtime - not only that, also local-network down vs their-server down

4. incidentally found out that some mirror quietly support https,
given events recent (years), trends, perhaps quietly update some mirrors to that
via edit , should be very easy
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-source-repositories.list
and make sure apt-transport-https installed

5. changelog.ubuntu.com used by synaptic and update-manager
supports https too - free to update protocols ?
