    Default Unable to check wether updates are available


    Hi.

    I've been running 11.1 since the release just before christmas. I have
    received a number of updates through kupdateapplet since then but now
    the applet goes gray and says "Unable to check wether updates are
    available". I found a bug report on the Updater Applet, it reports this
    error if you haven't configured an update repo. I originally performed a
    network install, an update repo was configured then and it has worked
    before. To be on the safe side I ran "Online Update Configuration"
    through Yast and got the same update repo added again. I removed the
    copy so that I have only one update repo ('Index of /update/11.1'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.1/)) configured. Is there a log
    somewhere for the Updater Applet that can give some more info on the
    error?

    Check in YaST which repositories you have enabled at the moment. If you
    don't have OSS, non-OSS, Update and Packman, you probably need to add
    them.

    I have them all enabled. The strange thing is that sometimes the applet
    seem to work, at least it does not go grey and report "Unable to check
    wether updates are available", and then again sometimes it does. I
    cannot figure out what is causing this. When it does go grey I am not
    using package management myself (through yast) so that cannot be the
    problem. Is there anyway to check if PackageKit is working correctly?

    Regards, Micke.
