Description James Livingston 2009-04-16 16:29:19 UTC
Recently packagekit-gnome got invoked after I clicked the "install all updates" button on the "security updates available" notification. After thinking about the dependencies for a while, it popped up a less than helpful "Bad security signature" warning dialog.

Some of the issues I have with the dialog are:
1. The dialog gives no indication of which package(s) have bad signatures, only that at least one does.
2. The two buttons in the dialog are "close" and "force install". It isn't obvious what "close" does - install nothing? install the other packages? close the dialog and open up a package-selection window?
3. Afterwards, opening the package review window yourself still doesn't tell you which one had the bad signature. The only way I could figure out which one had the problem was by doing binary-search style package installs.
