  1. openSUSE Updater nag

    This morning, my openSUSE updater turned orange and told me that there was
    an update available. It was a Polish translation of something. I speak
    several languages, but Polish is not one of them. So, I unchecked it hoping
    that would be the end of it. It resumed nagging, so I let it install
    something which is totally useless to me. Is there any way to clear an
    update that is not wanted?

    Thanks,

    Godzilla

    I think I have noticed the updater flagging updates for packages I do
    not have installed. If you let it continue with the "update" it will not
    actually install anything and stop pestering you. Pretty dumb behaviour
    though.

    Has anyone else noticed that after a successful update you must manually
    force the updater to check for updates again to change the icon back to
    showing that there are no further updates?

    All the above refers to 10.3 x86_64.

    I wonder if it is because I am selecting "Details" and updating through
    that dialog window...

    Other people have seen this:

    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=331594

    I am also seeing a problem where selecting "Details" when there are only
    "additional updates" opens a window with no updates available. If you
    select the option to update without showing the details first (who would
    want to do that?) then the additional updates *do* install. I will
    file a bug report next time this happens....
