Description Scott Kitterman 2013-10-17 23:35:58 UTC
In previous released if you clicked "check for updates" there was visual feedback that something was in progress.  The is highly disturbing because it looks like clicking the button did nothing.  This coupled with the fact that sometimes it does fail (see the next bug I'm about to file) makes the updater pretty unusable to check for updates.

Reproducible: Always

This is a severe usability regression.

Make the update cache Transaction to mark the apt backend as progressing

This way we get a nice progress bar when updating the cache.
