Description of problem:
After upgrading from Fedora 26 to Fedora 27 with updates-testing enabled the user is presented with notification about failed upgrade. However, everything looks fine and distro-sync is pretty happy with installed packages and their versions. Everything looks just fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start upgrade to Fedora 27
2. Click on notification regarding failed upgrade

Actual results:
Failed to Update

Expected results:
User should see no warning after successful upgrade.

Additional info:
This error occurred with updates-testing enabled. Will try upgrade without this and post an update to this bug later.

Error message after upgrade

I got the same error after doing a upgrade with gnome-software according to this instructions:

Comment 5 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2017-10-25 05:41:55 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker and Freeze Exception for 27-final by Fedora user jonha using the blocker tracking app because:

 This might not technically violate the "There must be no [...] crash notifications on [...] first login after a default install of a release-blocking desktop." criterion, because it happens after an upgrade and not after installation and it shows an "update failed" notification instead of a crash notification.

But I think this is similar enough (in spirit) to be considered.

This happened to all Workstation installations I upgraded to F27 Beta via both dnf and gnome-software and it should at least be investigated, because it is very confusing to get an "update failed" notification after a successful upgrade.

Note that in addition to the gnome-software error you get an annoying and confusing notification after every login.

Note that software upgrades generally work despite the error message.

Upstream bug:

Comment 8 Kalev Lember 2017-10-25 14:12:10 UTC
I debugged this and it's the F27 gnome-software that's incorrectly showing an error there. Builds fixing this under way.

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2017-10-25 14:42:13 UTC
gnome-software-3.26.1-3.fc27 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 27.

Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2017-10-25 16:11:15 UTC
I'm -1 blocker on this. I'm probably +1 FE to try and ensure this doesn't affect day 1 upgrades, though, so long as the fix is fairly safe - Kalev?

Comment 11 Kalev Lember 2017-10-26 06:34:00 UTC
Yep, it's a targeted fix, and should be safe to pull in for final. +1 FE from me as well.

Comment 12 Adam Williamson 2017-10-26 20:37:16 UTC
Discussed at 2017-10-26 Fedora 27 Final go/no-go meeting, acting as a blocker review meeting: . Rejected as a blocker as it doesn't actually seem to violate the criteria at all - the upgrade *works* fine, there's just a bogus error. However, accepted as a freeze exception issue as this obviously doesn't look good and it'd be nice to avoid people hitting it between now and the 0-day update push.

Comment 13 Fedora Update System 2017-10-30 01:53:18 UTC
gnome-software-3.26.1-3.fc27 has been pushed to the Fedora 27 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
