Since the last 2-3 days, gnome-software stays forever on the “looking for new updates” stage on F31. I’ve seen a couple of similar reports from late 2019, all of them suggesting that clearing its cache should fix the problem; however, this does not seem to be the case for me. Any other suggestions?
I ran it with --verbose (after killing it), and these are the last few lines it shows on the console:
12:35:20:0328 Gs running get-distro-updates with dedupe-flags=7 with refine-flags=require-size,require-version,require-setup-action,require-update-details,require-upgrade-removed,require-icon,require-runtime with interactive=True with timeout=60 on plugin=fedora-pkgdb-collections 12:35:20:0328 Gs updates-shell: no upgrades to show 12:35:20:0328 Gs Disconnecting cancellable 0x5576ac8378e0 12:35:20:0331 Gs app invalid as no summary system/package/*/os-upgrade/org.fedoraproject.Fedora-31/* 12:35:20:0331 Gs running refine with dedupe-flags=7 with refine-flags=require-size,require-version,require-update-details,require-icon,require-runtime with interactive=True with timeout=60 took 3ms 12:35:20:0331 GsPluginShellExtensions silo already valid 12:35:20:0336 Gs returning imperfect match: */*/*/*/system/* != system/package/*/os-upgrade/org.fedoraproject.Fedora-31/* 12:35:20:0336 Gs Disconnecting cancellable 0x5576ac8378e0 12:35:20:0377 Gs emitting global waiting 12:35:21:0023 Gs updates-changed 12:35:21:0785 PK notify::connected
After this, no more messages (it has been a couple of minutes already), and GUI keeps showing the “spinning” update. App is responsive, though, as I can cancel the upgrade request by clicking on the “stop” button on the upper-left corner.
EDIT: I left gnome-software trying to fetch updates for 2h straight, and it didn’t finish. I had to kill it manually.
