Since I installed the 11.4, I have a weird bug when I do the update process (in GUI). Though it doesn’t prevent the updates to install, it is a little annoying.
When I click the accept button to apply the updates, I get the usual authentication dialog. I input my password and then I get the same dialog but without the field to enter the password. If I click the Authenticate button, the dialog doesn’t shut and the update doesn’t proceed. But if I click the close button in the title bar, the dialog shuts and the update proceed. I never had this second dialog appearing in both the 11.2 and 11.3.

heh! interesting…i’ve never heard this report before…
assumption: it worked correctly for a while, then broke
so, it (‘it’ being YaST and/or that new thing kpackageupdaterhelperkit
(or whatever it is called that replaced YOU) got damaged somehow…
so, i suggest you use zypper to reinstall YaST and
then see if ‘it’ will start working (together) right again…
if not, you need to log a bug…(though if you are the only one who
ever sees it–good luck)
but, if ‘it’ does start working, you might be able to eventually
find out how it got damaged, but probably not (but, i’d start by
looking at which and how many repos you routinely have
I have had similar (but not identical) problems. On one occasion, I hit “cancel” on the second authentication window, and it went on and worked. On another occasion, I cancelled everything, then started the update over again.
I have no advice of reporting a bug. I have not done so myelf. PackageKit is buggy, but the bugs are elusive and hard to document and repeat.
As far as I know, this is a completely different updater applet than was used in 11.2 and 11.3.
