This problem was most recently seen with package version 0.8.17-4ubuntu6~gcc5.4ubuntu1.1, the problem page at https://errors.ubuntu.com/problem/8c37a6988b890cc46b415972ef1e2ca746f9ffcc contains more details, including versions of packages affected, stacktrace or traceback, and individual crash reports. If you do not have access to the Ubuntu Error Tracker you can request it at http://forms.canonical.com/reports/. SRU INFORMATION =============== * Impact: PackageKit immediately crashes in GetUpdateDetail() * Test case: - Be on a system (container, VM, or real iron) with at least one upgradeable package. If you don't have one, downgrade tzdata: sudo apt-get install tzdata=2016j-0ubuntu0.16.04 - Run "pkcon get-updates" to see upgradeable packages. - Run "pkcon get-update-detail tzdata" (or for a different package). - Current PackageKit immediately crashes (message from pkcon and systemctl status packagekit), with this fix it should survive and show some data (changelog doesn't work though). * Regression potential: Update details are currently completely broken, so very little to regress there. As for dropping the browser plugin package: The current package stopped working long ago with current firefox; however, the package from xenial-release will still be around. All in all this shouldn't change anything visible. * Upstream fix: https://github.com/hughsie/PackageKit/commit/18c56fa52 (only the acqpkitstatus.cpp bit) * Downstream packaging change to drop browser plugin: https://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg- packagekit/packagekit.git/commit/?id=b98a978322 Test packages: http://people.ubuntu.com/~pitti/packagekit- updatedetail-crash/ To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/packagekit/+bug/1689820/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
