Hi! I've been having problems to perform standard fedora updates for about a week on my fedora 21; the updates are downloaded and, as always, I reboot to make fedora install the updates, but this time it just shows the "installing the updates" message without percentage; after some second it claims the updates have been installed and halts/reboots the system. Actually, it doesn't install the updates and the next time I open fedora it says it didn't install the updates; the message is kind of "unable to complete offline update: package NetworkManager-v<something> not found" (the package name changes sometimes). I tried to found something in the logs, but I didn't find anything relevant; I also tried to delete yum cache, but the error persists. How can I fix this problem?</something>

yum update in the terminal

Yeah, this is probably an issue with Apper. Try sando66's recommendation: open up a Terminal and execute sudo yum update and see if it completes appropriately.

Thank you, you were both right: yum update run as root showed the issue: I was missing google's key to update google chrome, thus the update failed. The strange thing, anyway, is that early it wanted to install the updates in that "special" update-only boot option, while this time it installed the updates from the terminal... Anyway this solved the issue.

Hi

Here is a workaround to solve that problem.

Install yumex

Open yumex and wait it show all update packages to install

Choose only the first ten update packages and Apply to start the update process

Go ahead until install all update packages

As suggested by sando66 and by bitwiseoperator, running yum update as root showed the issue: I was missing google's key to update google chrome, thus the update failed. The strange thing, anyway, is that early it wanted to install the updates in that "special" update-only boot option, while this time it installed the updates from the terminal...
