Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

Where did all the updates go?

I just installed Fedora 16. I ran the software update. It said it installed 250+ things. I don't see any difference. I don't see anything in add/remove software. Updater says that there are no updates for me now. Did I miss something?

    I'm glad you solved it. I'm sorry there wasn't a quicker response. Usually there are many folks here. I guess with the holidays, we are all traveling to visit family for the holidays.

    BTW - if that happens again, do (in a terminal, as root):
    yum clean all
    and then
    yum update

    And the application database will be restored. Sometimes the database gets corrupted and has to be rebuilt.
  • for those who come after. If you just installed Fedora and your add remove list is not listing, click system at the top and then 'refresh package list'. hooray

    Ubuntu/Debian users: apt-get update.

    Change your update notifications from weekly to daily.

    Rinse, Repeat, Enjoy.
