This test case tests whether yum and PackageKit can install package updates.

How to test

  1. Clean boot the Fedora you wish to test: this could be a system installed from a particular snapshot, pre-release, or release, or a live image. It should be an image for which updates will be available
  2. Open a console, and run the command yum update as root. If you have any difficult opening a console in the normal fashion from the desktop you are testing, note this, but continue with the test. Complete the update process
  3. If you are testing a live image, reboot. If you are testing an installed system, either wait for more updates to become available, or re-install
  4. Launch the graphical update application (e.g. system menu > System > Administration > Software Update). Run through the update process

Expected Results

  1. Both CLI and graphical update applications should complete the update process with no errors
  2. Both should check the appropriate repositories for the release under testing for updates, with no manual configuration required
  3. Both should list the number and details of available updates and await confirmation before proceeding with the actual update process
  4. Both should correctly install all available updates when you confirm that you wish to do so
