I have Fedora 18 with 3.9.2-200.fc18.x86_64 I have performed a system update via the graphical tool, and after that I was presented with the "Install Updates and Restart" near the power off. I choose the option to "Install Updates and Restart" the PC reboots, the starts the boot process. During the boot precess I get this messages among other:

  • Starting Updates the operating system whilst offline...
  • Started Updates the operating system whilst offline.
  • Started Drop Read-Ahead Data.
  • Reached target system update.
  • Updating system _ _ _ _ Rebooting after installing update...
  • Sending SIGTERM to remaining processes...

After this the PC reboots again. Once in gnome-shell I do not receive any message regarding missed updates but the "Install Updates and Restart" is still present like if the updates were not installed. It seams like the reboot has happened before the updates were installed.

Can any one help please?

Best Regards, André
