Description woutervanwijk 2009-01-16 13:45:53 UTC
Every time I open OOo 3, I get a message in the upper-right corner stating that
there are updates for extensions. But if I click it, no updates are available.
This is irritating since the balloon pops up every time I start OOo.
Comment 1 Martin Hollmichel 2009-01-16 14:14:02 UTC
i'm not able to reproduce this, what extensions in which version are already
installed ?
Comment 2 hans_werner67 2009-01-16 14:25:00 UTC
CCed TBO as extension-repository engineer
Comment 3 2009-01-19 10:38:09 UTC
Hi woutervanwijk,
do you get it when you are connected to the internet, or do you also get it
when no internet access is available?
Comment 4 woutervanwijk 2009-01-22 11:52:47 UTC
I always get it, no matter if I'm connected or not. I use the Dutch version of
OOo, and two extensions are installed: Dutch spelling and hyphenation, and the
english one.
Comment 5 2009-01-22 12:17:32 UTC
ok, if you also get it without internet connection, i'm out of it :-)
-> JL: as developer - are you aware of such a behaviour?
-> OF: Have you seen this behaviour jet?
Comment 6 Olaf Felka 2009-01-22 12:30:24 UTC
OF: Fortunately not. Otherwise I've had to write an issue.

Comment 8 woutervanwijk 2009-03-03 10:57:24 UTC
I found out that if I disable the general 'check for updates' option (of the
whole suite), then this behaviour is gone.

Retargeted, could not reproduce.
Comment 16 2009-09-13 10:24:19 UTC

I can reproduce this with 3.1.1rc2 on WinXP with the pre-shipped extensions only.

Tell me what info you need and I will try to get it to you.

Maybe error in the config of on of the extensions shipped that is triggering a
bug in the update system?
Comment 17 2009-09-13 10:43:24 UTC
I have looked into it a little more and have noted the following.

A part of the Jobs.xcu looks like this:

<node oor:name="UpdateCheck">
 <node oor:name="Arguments">
  <prop oor:name="AutoCheckEnabled" oor:type="xs:boolean">
  <prop oor:name="LastCheck" oor:type="xs:long">
  <prop oor:name="Extension_org.openoffice.en.hunspell.dictionaries"
oor:op="replace" oor:type="xs:string">
  <prop oor:name="Extension_org.openoffice.da.writer2latex.oxt" oor:op="replace"

Removing the file completely or the following lines solves the problem:

  <prop oor:name="Extension_org.openoffice.en.hunspell.dictionaries"
oor:op="replace" oor:type="xs:string">

Also, can we verify that the value "2008.11.20" is absolutely correct and works
in this way?

Maybe this can help you?

set target.
Comment 19 dirk.voelzke 2010-10-28 13:03:04 UTC
There have been loots of changes in the extension manager and I can't reproduce
this issue. I will close this one.
