packagekitd get-updates loop

Hi maintainers,

On my laptop, packagekitd is frequently stuck in a loop doing get-updates. As a result, it constantly keeps the CPU running at C0 state more often than otherwise.

I've looked into the source code and was able to locate the code for get-updates. However, I'm unable to identify the code/configuration that triggers get-updates. I could try to dig deeper if someone could give me some pointers.

I've listed the hardware information below and have also attached the log from last night until just now.

Hardware Information:
OS: Fedora 27 (Workstation Edition) x86_64
Kernel: 4.15.3-300.fc27.x86_64

Hi maintainers,

I've also seen a related Debian bug report at https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=881787;msg=5.

We moved the upstream bugtracker to GitHub a long time ago. If this issue still affects you please re-create the issue here: https://github.com/hughsie/PackageKit/issues
Sorry for the impersonal message, and fingers crossed your issue no longer happens. Thanks.
