Description Kamil Páral 2022-03-15 11:57:40 UTC
Description of problem:
If I boot Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-36_Beta-1.1.iso, I sometimes (not always) see "updates available" notification. That is wrong, the system should not ask the user to update when it's running from the Live system. There must be some regression since F35.

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

How reproducible:
often, not always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the Live image
2. wait a few minutes, the notification appears (sometimes)

Proposing as an F36 Final Blocker:
"Release-blocking desktops must notify the user of available updates, but must not do so when running as a live image. "

It's supposed to be disabled by

# disable gnome-software automatically downloading updates
cat >> /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ << FOE
