My PC was also an upgrade from 10.0. So, are you saying that by
deactivating and reactivating "Installation Source"'s that that causes the
Software Updater to start displaying updates again (i. e., you really don't
need to add any sources into the Software Updater itself -- it automatically
picks up the feeds from the sources you have defined under "Installation
Source"'s)? That would make sense, because I never had any YUM, ZIPP, etc.
services defined directly under the Software Updater before and yet it still
notified me when there were updates available. I'll try deactivating and
activating my sources in Installation-Source and see if that starts the S.
U. working again. Thanks for the tip.
