Description Dirk Wiesenthal univentionstaff 2015-09-29 18:08:36 CEST
The 4.1 App Center makes a good Job working offline. But it still needs to query online categories.ini to translate the categories. We need to download it and use it. Overwrite it on

univention-app update

This Bug should be used to also verify that the App Center can work offline.

This is useful in postinst and UCR Templates.
Comment 2 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2015-10-15 16:21:57 CEST
categories.ini is already cached locally in /var/cache/univention-appcenter/.categories.ini.

Just fixed _download_supra_files to not overwrite the local .categories.ini if appcenter server is not reachable.

And moved self._extract_local_archive before self._download_supra_files (first process local archive then try to update from server).
