[dist-upgrader] User should be prompted to update *before* the upgrade
Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:
I'm running Breezy. I followed the directions here:
to upgrade to the Dapper release candidate. Specifically, I ran:
gksudo "update-manager -d"
After I'd navigated the prompts from update-manager, it acted as
expected: started downloading packages, etc. No problem here.
The problem is that while this was happening, the little update-
manager icon on the Gnome toolbar popped up its little message box
telling me that there are new updates available, and to I want to
install them now or be reminded later.
So the specific bug is that while I'm in the middle of an upgrade, I
shouldn't be prompted by that little toolbar-icon asking me if I want
to install updates. First of all, it's a silly question. And (for
all I know), if I *had* clicked on that "install updates" link in the
message, would carnage have ensued from having two instances of
system-update software running at the same time?
