I just discovered that when running on German locale AmiUpdate gives misleading information.
On first invocation AmiUpdate gives this notification to restart the computer:
When you follow the advice it's apparent that this will lead you nowhere, of course. But when you invoke AmiUpdate the second time, the program window pops up and you'll see this:
You can see not matched strings and wrong order of buttons. The correct buttons show up when you switch to English language:
As you can see, the buttons in the German locale are mixed up:
- Scan is Aktualisieren (Update)
- Update is Abbrechen (Cancel)
- Select None is Fortfahren (Proceed)
- Info is Danke (Thanks)
So, clicking on Aktualisieren (Update) will result in another scan for updated packages.
I was updating from two versions behind and on very first invocation AmiUpdate itself updated, resulting in this broken setup. Maybe when updating from the previous version this problem does not occur.
Just wanted to let you know...
