Description Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2013-12-17 12:26:48 CET
If a valid internet connection is present while booting into appliance system setup, an update check is performed and, in case an errata is available, a popup notifies the user that is can be installed in the corresponding module.

From the popup the software-update tab can be opened, and updates can be installed. 

I think this is very disruptive for the installation experience, especially for new users who are not yet familiar with UCS.

The fix will is, that the UCRV update/available is set to false with --force. An appliance hook script will deactivate the --force option after the system setup has completed.

After the errata has been published, the ucs appliance wiki page should be updated ( http://wiki.univention.de/index.php?title=UCS_Appliance ): update/available has to be set with --forced:
--- 8< ---
# overwrite old update/available flag (Bug #33762)
ucr set --force update/available=false
--- >8 ---

OK - /usr/lib/univention-system-setup/appliance-hooks.d/remove_ucr_force_update_available removes the forced variable update/available
