pkcon get updates returns nothing, however /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/conary/get-updates.py returns a long list of packages

Comment 1 Elliot Peele 2007-11-26 18:34:00 UTC
Running git snapshot of PackageKit git20071120
Comment 2 Elliot Peele 2007-11-28 08:19:18 UTC
Appears that this is actually a bug in the error handling in the conary backend
Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2007-12-30 01:48:21 UTC
Can I close this bug now Elliot?
Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2008-01-20 14:25:23 UTC
