STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
Open App manager and add an invalid repository (ie. devel-extraz instead of
Update catalogs or wait for automatic update.
A message should show up that some repositories are unvailable.
A screen showing a list of invalid repositories should appear.
Tap at the wrong repository and fix it to make a valid repository.
List of repositories should be updated and the user should be kicked back to
the main app manager screen.
The dialog windo with a list of "Invalid catalogues" is still there, but it is
completely empty now. This is confusing and requires user interaction to
actually close an empty dialog window.
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
None that would interfere with the app manager.
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; pl-PL; rv:184.108.40.206)
Gecko/2009090216 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.14
The same thing happens when you delete an invalid app catalog, the empty dialog
window is still there, without any contents.
Hmm, I cannot reproduce this here. Confirmation by another tester is highly
Let me add some visuals to show the issue more clearly.
This is the screen showing invalid catalogs, with my example, invalid catalog:
Tap on the catalog, remove it, confirm, get kicked back to this:
Created an attachment (id=1428) [details]
Screenshot application catalouge
I can't reproduce it, too. I added the repository "extras-devil", but I don't
get any error. If I open the Application Catalogues again, there is an error
symbol before the problematic repository (see screenshot).
By the way. You can produce screenshots with Ctrl-Shift-P
I wasn't able to understand your screenshots, because the second picture was
too blurry. Also English interface might be helpful for other to reproduce or
to prevent misunderstandings.
Created an attachment (id=1429) [details]
Alright, let me explain again.
1) Add wrong repo
2) System will update but not complain
3) Hit the UPDATE icon on the main appman screen
4) Now the system will complain about invalid catalogs
5) Hit details
6) List of invalid catalogs shows up
7) Remove them
8) Empty window.
The attached screenshots suggest that two catalogs are invalid, I supposed
extras-devel (the real, valid catalog) is currently down.
