    Gnome-software: an update that doesn't update

    Hi!

    It's been several days already, and I still have this update pending in gnome-software:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Schermata da 2019-04-03 10-04-46.png 
Views:	16 
Size:	22.4 KB 
ID:	30233

    Clicking on either "update" or "update all" buttons (forgive me, they're displayed in my native language in the above picture) seems not to trigger any successful action.

    If I give
    Code:
    sudo dnf update
    or
    Code:
    sudo dnf upgrade
    there's nothing in the queue waiting for installation.

    How do I get rid of that pending update in gnome-software?

    I use Fedora 29.
    Jimmy

    You could try "dnf clean all" then "dnf update" to see if that clears the problem.
    If it does not there is the slightly more drastic "dnf clean all" and "dnf distro-sync" , the distro-sync has the potential to downgrade packages.
    Hopefully the dnf clean all will remove the files/locks that relate to your hung transaction.

    I fixed this. I don't even remember how, but I do remember it was something like "cleaning the cache of gnome-software". The dnf commands you suggested didn't fix it.
