I have a computer running Gnome 43.6 that does not show notification when updates are available. It was working a few months ago, but can not tell when it stops working. How can I bring back available update notifications? How often does it does Software check for available updates? Is it possible to change this periodicity?
- The computer was installed with Debian 11 and manually upgraded to Debian 12, and currently runs Gnome Software 43.5-1~deb12u1.
- I confirm that
/usr/bin/gnome-software --gapplication-serviceis started automatically when I open a session.
apt list --upgradablelists many available updates.
- I do not use a metered connection.
- I do not have any fancy settings in dconf (I only disable automatic download):
$ dconf dump /org/gnome/software/ [/] check-timestamp=int64 1691236134 => Sat Aug 5 13:48:54 CEST 2023 download-updates=false first-run=false install-timestamp=int64 1661718901 => Sun Aug 28 22:35:01 CEST 2022 online-updates-timestamp=int64 1675285379 => Wed Feb 1 22:02:59 CET 2023 update-notification-timestamp=int64 1698304770 => Thu Oct 26 09:19:30 CEST 2023
- When I start Gnome Software, it displays the number of updates on the top.
- Notifications are enabled:
$ dconf dump /org/gnome/desktop/notifications/application/org-gnome-software/ [/] application-id='org.gnome.Software.desktop' enable=true
- I have just created a new user on the machine, member of the sudo group, but it does not get any notification either.
