I'm not sure I follow what you said. So you mean it's normal and by design?
With such design, as I launch gpk-update-viewer(GUI in gnome-packagekit), I
can't see any updates because both "pkcon get-updates" and gpk-update-viewer
pk_client_get_updates_async which finally call backend_get_updates_thread() in
pk-backend-zypp.cpp to get updates with libzypp. I noticed below snippets from
that function
// get all Packages and Patches for Update
std::set<zypp::PoolItem> *candidates = zypp_get_patches ();
//std::set<zypp::PoolItem> *candidates2 = new std::set<zypp::PoolItem>

if (!_updating_self) {
// exclude the patch-repository
std::string patchRepo;
if (!candidates->empty ()) {
patchRepo = candidates->begin ()->resolvable
()->repoInfo ().alias ();

//candidates2 = zypp_get_updates (patchRepo);

//candidates->insert (candidates2->begin (), candidates2->end

So you use zypp_get_patches rather than zypp_get_updates to get updates? Why
such design

Thanks Reeves.

But I still have issue getting it running correctly. 'zypper list-updates'
does get a list of updates(yes, I do have them) but 'pkcon get-updates'
said "There are no updates available at this time". Any idea?

We implement get-updates as zypper lp which list official patches released as
