Where did all the updates go?

Link to this post 18 Dec 11

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?

Never mind they showed.

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.
