- [Steps to Reproduce]
- ====================
- 1. $ sudo apt-mark hold ____
- (substitute name of the package you want held
- 2. GNOME Software should not notify about held package(s) as an available 
update. Maybe it shouldn't list held packages in the Updates page either.
+ [Impact]
+ GNOME Software shows .deb packages marked as held as updatable.
- GNOME Software does not actually upgrade held packages but it's
- confusing that it looks like it's going to.
+ [Test Case]
+ 1. Hold a package that is available for update, e.g.
+ $ sudo apt-mark hold gnome-calculator
+ 2. Open GNOME Software
+ 3. Click on Updates tab
- Update Manager shows held packages in the update list but they are
- unchecked (and unable to be checked).
+ Expected result:
+ Held package(s) are not shown
- [Original Bug Description]
- ==========================
- I have a held package, and gnome-software keeps popping up the "upgrades are 
available" notification.  Looking at it what it wants to upgrade, there is only 
the held package.  I haven't clicked 'install' to see if it will actually do 
so, but held packages should not be upgraded by gnome-software.
+ Observed result:
+ Held package(s) are shown
